1:30 p.m. update:
The Cardinals do not expect Chris Carpenter to pitch for the team in 2013 because of medical issues related to last year's shoulder trouble, and general manager John Mozeliak said he doubts that Carpenter will pitch for the team again.
As Carpenter intensified his throwing program in preparation for spring training, the righthanded ace had setbacks and physical issues, Cardinals officials said this afternoon in a press conference at Busch Stadium.
Carpenter is said to have considered retirement, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the pitcher's situation.
