Tuesday afternoon tidbit: Duncan on DL, Wainwright on mound

Greetings…

* Chris Duncan is on the disabled list with what has alternately been called a bulging disc and a pinched nerve in his neck. Joe Mather has been recalled from Memphis and is present and available.

* Adam Wainwright threw off a mound today for the first time since his finger injury. He anticipates a quick path back to the active roster, possibly as soon as 2 1/2 weeks (ie, the series at Wrigley). Also, for the conspiracy theorists, he dismissively laughed at the notion of returning in relief.

* Chris Carpenter threw his normal between-starts bullpen today and even took batting practice.

-M.

wow, thats just great news all around matt! duncan out and waino and carp on there way back…….sounds like a winning combo to me….

Duncan getting hurt is good news?

Matt, is there any sign that bullpen help is coming or in the works? The last three innings of recent Cardinal games have given me multiple heart attacks.

Hey M, when Adam threw from the mound, did he snap any curveballs?

Nope…

Check my story on the site. FBs and changeups for now.

Why not start Carpenter on Friday with Boggs and Thompson available for long relief? Could send Jimenez back to Memphis and Friday Carp is scheduled to start in Memphis anyway.
