Cardinals 1B Craig has foot sprain

The SportsXchange

St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Allen Craig has a sprained left foot, the team announced Thursday.

Craig injured the foot while rounding first base during Wednesday's 16-inning win over the Cincinnati Reds. He was slow to get up and limped off the field. The team feared he may have fractured the foot, which would have kept him out for the rest of the season.

X-rays were inconclusive so he was sent from Cincinnati to St. Louis for an MRI and more X-rays, which revealed the injury.

It is not clear how long Craig will be out, but manager Mike Matheny said he will be able to return at some point this season.

Craig is batting .315 with 13 home runs and 97 RBI.
