ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - St. Louis Cardinals fans might be welcoming a World Series run but saying goodbye to a team favorite.
According to the Boston Globe, right-hand pitcher Chris Carpenter will retire during the off-season. Bob LaMonte, Carpenter's agent, told the newspaper that he could work for the Cardinals organization in the future but after six surgeries, he won't return to the mound.
During his career, Carpenter won a Cy Young award, two World Series titles and had three All-Star game appearances. Carpenter pitched three games in 2012 and didn't pitch during the 2013 season. During his 15-season career, he racked up a 144-94 record with a 3.76 ERA.
NewsChannel 5's Frank Cusumano, who's traveling with the team during the NLCS series, said no decision has yet been made on the pitcher's future.
