Cardinals SP Chris Carpenter to Undergo Season-Ending Surgery

Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS) -- St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Chris Carpenter plans to undergo season-ending shoulder surgery to repair a nerve issue that has kept him from taking the mound this season.

The surgery will take place in Dallas on July 19. The expected recovery time is between three-to-six months.

The 37-year-old Carpenter was first shut down in March after experiencing weakness and numbness in his arm and shoulder. He resumed throwing in mid-June, but the symptoms returned.

Carpenter is a two-time World Series champion.
