|Allen Craig returns to outfield Friday |

(8/22/14) Red Sox first baseman Allen Craig is starting in right field Friday, just one day after he made his return from the disabled list as a designated hitter. This will be Craig's first appearance in the field since suffering the foot injury that landed him on the DL Aug. 1.
|Allen Craig could have offseason foot surgery |

(8/21/14) Cardinals infielder Allen Craig could have offseason surgery on his foot, according to WEEI.
Craig is dealing with a Lisfranc injury, and will attempt to play through it down the stretch. He could opt for offseason surgery if he can't handle an increased workload moving forward. Craig has hit .237/.291/.348 over 371 at-bats.
|Allen Craig brought back from DL, serving as DH Thursday |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/21/14) Red Sox first baseman Allen Craig was activated from the disabled list Thursday and is in the lineup for that evening's game against the Angels, the team announced.
Craig has been out since injuring his ankle in his first game with the Red Sox. He is batting fifth and serving as the designated hitter Thursday.
|On the one hand, Allen Craig's 2013 was the perfect follow-up to his breakout 2012. He made his first All-Star team while improving both his batting average and on-base percentage. He emerged as the preferred cleanup hitter in a loaded Cardinals lineup, driving in 97 runs with an incredible .454 batting average with runners in scoring position. But at the same time, his 2013 only furthered concerns about his durability -- ones that date back to his time in the minor leagues. He was doing fine until September, when what looked like a rolled ankle turned out to be a Lisfranc injury that kept him in a walking boot for weeks and forced him to miss the Cardinals' first two playoff series. He returned in time for the World Series and hit OK despite being noticeably hobbled. Still, when you consider he also missed the first month of 2012 recovering from knee surgery, you have to wonder if the 29-year-old's body will betray him again, especially now that he's moving to right field to free up first base for up-and-comer Matt Adams. As a well-rounded hitter with dual eligibility, Craig is on the border of elite status in Fantasy, especially if he gets back to hitting 20-plus homers, but the injury risk could drop him outside the top 10 first basemen and top 10 outfielders on Draft Day.
