Back tightness delays Carpenter's spring debut for Cards

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) Cardinals manager Mike Matheny isn't sure when first baseman Matt Carpenter will make his Grapefruit League debut.

Carpenter is battling back tightness. For the time being, he is in the hands of the Cardinals' medical staff, who will determine when Carpenter can return to the field.

"When they are in their hands, we're following their lead," Matheny said. "They'll tell us."
