Entering play Saturday, May 25, St. Louis Cardinals 1B/OF Allen Craig was batting .363 with 17 RBIs in 21 games this month.
Wed, 24 Apr 2013 07:18:16 -0700
St. Louis Cardinals 3B David Freese is out of the lineup Wednesday, April 24, and 1B Allen Craig is hitting second in the order.
Fantasy Tip: Craig is hitting just .245, but he does have 15 RBIs. The Cards use the two-hole often to help break a player out of a slump. It might not happen today, though, because they're facing Stephen Strasburg.

St. Louis Cardinals 1B/OF Allen Craig is out of the lineup Wednesday, April 10, in favor of 1B Matt Adams.

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Allen Craig (knee) suffered a laceration on his right knee sliding into a wall attempting to catch a foul ball in right field Wednesday, April 3.
Fantasy Tip: He fractured his kneecap on a similar play in Houston two years ago. Craig favored the knee for a bit, but remained in the game. He should be fine, but it may make the team re-think putting him in the outfield to give Matt Adams playing time at first base.

The St. Louis Cardinals are close to deals that would renew all players' contracts under club control, but the team is taking a little extra time determining a salary for OF Allen Craig.
