Allen Craig, OF, St. Louis Cardinals
Craig finding time
The Cards plan to give Craig an extended look in the final week of the season.
It ain't much, but at this stage, what more can you ask for?
Craig, 26, has never had much trouble hitting; he has a .308/.370/.518 triple-slash mark from his days on the farm. His clubs have just had trouble finding a place to put him. He's a professional hitter, and with regular PT, he should at least do nothing to hurt, and he may give you a few RBIs and a homer or two.

Jason Bourgeois, OF, Houston Astros
This right-handed hitter is essentially filling in for Michael Bourn (oblique). Bourn isn't likely to return to the starting lineup before the season ends.
Bourgeois, 28, made 43 plate appearances in the bigs prior to this season. He's a base stealer, with 18 in 261 plate appearances on the farm this year and 66 in the past two years combined.
Bourgeois has batted well over .300 in the past four seasons combined, too. He has a little more pop and better plate discipline than someone like Willy Taveras. In Bourgeois' recent stretch of starts, he's 7-for-31 (.226) with four thefts. If you need that one trick, who better in the final days?
