Cardinals | Matt Carpenter sticking at 2B

The St. Louis Cardinals are happy with the transition that 2B Matt Carpenter has made with the move to second base, and he's in consideration for the starting job there. Carpenter hasn't committed an error in 44 innings this spring, and his footwork has become more natural. "I'm at the point now where if I were to be out there in a game I don't feel lost whatsoever," Carpenter said. "Am I going to win a Gold Glove over there? The odds of that are probably slim. But at the same time, do I feel like I can play an adequate second base? I do. I really do now. I'm comfortable at that position." Carpenter is battling with 2B Daniel Descalso, and the team expects the competition to spill into the regular season.
