Keisler to start Tues., Carp likely to DL
As usual, there will be more detail on all of this when my notebook goes up. But in the meantime, here are the morning updates from the pregame chat with TLR:
* Randy Keisler will start in Carpenter’s place on Tuesday. It would be his fifth day, after he went on Thursday in Memphis’ opener.
* The corresponding move likely will be to place Carpenter on the DL. He flew with the team out of Houston, then headed back to STL last night. He’s being checked out by Paletta today.
* Scott Spiezio is ill; he apparently has something resembling food poisoning. It’s uncertain whether he’ll come to the park or stay back at the hotel.
