Former Mountaineer Carpenter Back In The Majors

Posted:
MORGANTOWN -

Former West Virginia University baseball player David Carpenter is back in the Major Leagues. He was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday by the Toronto Blue Jays.

Carpenter began the season in the Major Leagues with the Houston Astros. He struggled at times this season going 0-2 with a 6.07 ERA in 30 appearances with the Astros. Carpenter was later demoted to Triple-A before being traded by the Astros to the Blue Jays last month.

The move to the Blue Jays organization proved to be a good one for Carpenter. He was 0-1 with a 1.93 ERA and 14 strikeouts in just over nine innings pitched.

Carpenter is expected to join the Blue Jays in time for their game against the New York Yankees tonight.
