Matt Carpenter is dealing with some back tightness.
Carpenter dealt with a stiff back early on in camp last year, as well. It shouldn't be a big deal but will keep him limited to playing first base for now. "Carp’s going to focus most of his (defense) at first base at this point but he’s going to get work at third and he’s going to get work at second," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "We’re probably not going to move him around a whole lot at the beginning. We just want to be careful. It’s something that’s happened before and we just want to stay ahead of it." Feb 18 - 12:56 PM
