Carpenter not pitching in 2013 (1 Viewer)

He'd turn 38 in the first month of this season and only pitched 17 IP in the 2012 regular season. I'm assuming the Cardinals had a plan B.

 
Does this give Shelby a spot in the rotation?
It is very possible. Spring Training will tell the tale on this one. Assuming Jaime Garcia's shoulder is good to go, there are three spots in the rotation locked: Wainwright, Garcia, and Westbrook.From there, you have Lance Lynn, Joe Kelly, Shelby Miller, and Trevor Rosenthal battling for #4 and #5. Lynn should have a heavy lean for one of those spots because of how well he did in the first half last season, but they really like him out of the pen as well.My guess is that it is Lynn and Miller getting the rotation spots with Rosenthal and Kelly working the middle innings.

If Miller gets a spot - are you guys high on him? I think he is a nice end of the draft grab who can put up nice numbers if he has a spot

It is all about what's going on between the ears. He has top shelf stuff, but his lack of consistency and rumors of not exactly following the Cardinals wishes on a weight program last season have put a damper on some people's excitement. Maybe starting in the bigs this season will be good for him from a focus and consistency standpoint.He could certainly provide some back-end value in fantasy leagues, but I doubt you'll be alone with that line of thinking.

Yeah, that's kinda what I was thinking. I would imagine he creeps into the top 60 SP drafted this spring. Not much room for profit at that level.

At SP#60 he might be worth a flier but my guess is somebody else will take the leap well before then. He's got the talent to possibly outperform that slot but he could just as easily spend time in the bullpen or Memphis.
