Carpenter headed for DL?

Rotoworld reports:

Chris Carpenter is going to miss his next scheduled start due to soreness and stiffness in his right elbow.

He might be spending some time on the DL. If so, this is good news for the Cubs and other NL central teams. The Cardinals were probably still the frontrunners but they walk a razor thin line to maintain that. If Carpenter misses any signifigant time they will be in big trouble considering their shaky bullpen and complete lack of an adequate replacement.
