Chris Carpenter puts comeback on hold

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Chris Carpenter's rehab start with the Memphis Redbirds Saturday will be the last time we see the Cardinals right hander for a while.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Carpenter, after experiencing numbness in his hand following his start in Memphis will put his comeback on hold for the time being.

"I am going to take a little bit of time," Carpenter told the Post-Dispatch. "After the last one it just wasn't what we were looking for. I wasn't happy with the way that I recovered, and neither was the medical staff. We are going to take a step back again."

There is no timetable for Carpenter's return.

In his last outing in Memphis Carpenter pitched 3 1/3 inning giving up nine hits and four runs against Oklahoma City.
