According to the Sporting News, there is a possibility that Carpenter, who has not pitched yet this season, could return to the rotation by May, though June is more likely.
Last season, Carpenter pitched a total of 273 1/3 innings (including the playoffs) with a 3.45 ERA in the regular season and a 3.25 ERA in the postseason.
