Carpenter, 38, is a two-time World Champion with the Cardinals and has been with St. Louis since the 2004 season. The finest season of his storied career came in 2005 when he won the Cy Young Award, the first Cardinal to do so since Bob Gibson in 1970, going 21-5 with a 2.83 ERA through 33 starts. That year, he tossed seven complete games, four of which were shutouts, with a career-high 213 strikeouts through 241.2 innings.
Over his 15-year career, the Exeter, New Hampshire native has gone 144-94 with a 3.76 ERA, 33 complete games, 15 shutouts and 1,697 strikeouts through 2,219.1 total innings of work. He has been an All-Star three times throughout his career (2005, 2006 and 2010), and in 2005 became the first Cardinal since Rick Wise in 1973 to be named the starting pitcher for an All-Star Game.
In nine years and 198 career starts as a Cardinal, Carpenter has gone 95-44, winning 15 or more games for the Cards in five of the six seasons in which he's made at least 20 starts. He ranks 3rd in Cardinals history with 1,085 strikeouts, only 10 behind Dizzy Dean. His .683 winning percentage as a Cardinal not only ranks 2nd all-time for St. Louis pitchers with at least 100 starts, but it is also the best in all of Major League Baseball over the past nine seasons.
