Carpenter may be conditioning himself to be a starter, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Carpenter has been following a rehab plan similar to that of a starting pitcher. Carpenter plans to sit down three times during his session on Saturday to simulate the breaks between innings. A once-dominant starter, Carpenter could make for an interesting second-half stash for fantasy owners if he can crack the St. Louis rotation.
