Carpenter, who was profiled last week, gets another mention as he was activated off the 60-day disabled list and made his first start of the season Friday. He allowed two earned runs on five hits and a walk with two strikeouts in 77 pitches over five innings against Chicago. With Jake Westbrook suffering a setback with his oblique injury, Carpenter, who was out with thoracic outlet syndrome in his pitching shoulder, will likely remain in the rotation and make two more starts. Last year, Carpenter gave up more than a hit an inning for the first time since 2002 - but he still posted a 3.45 ERA and 191:55 K:BB ratio in 237 innings. He will be 37 next season, but given his previous track record and willingness plus desire to pitch, he still should be a solid starter and post good numbers on a solid team.
