Red Sox Injury Update: Allen Craig ready for baseball activities

By on 8/10/2014 11:15:00 AM

The Boston Red Sox lost a marathon 19-inning game on Saturday against the Los Angeles Angels by the score of 5-4. Albert Pujols hit a walk-off home run to end the longest game of this season. The loss dropped the Red Sox to 51-65, last place in the American League East. As the nightmarish season continues for the defending World Series champions, there is some good news on the injury front. Recently acquired Allen Craig, who is on the disabled list, is ready to begin baseball activities.

Our own Raymond Bureau reported on August 5 that Craig was placed on the disabled list with soreness in his right foot suffered in his first game with the Red Sox.

As reported by Quinn Roberts of, Craig joined his teammates on Saturday at Angel Stadium ready to resume baseball activities. He received a second opinion on his sprained left foot and got the green light to start baseball activities, according to manager John Farrell.
"He'll start to swing a bat in the cage and on a tee," manager. He'll start to go with less than full weight-bearing work on the treadmill to get a basic foundation before we get him to full activity on the field."
Craig, in his fifth Major League season, is 1-for-4 with a double in his only game with the Red Sox. He was batting .237 with seven home runs and 44 RBI with the Cardinals this season.  In 470 career games, Craig has a batting average of .291 with 57 home runs and 291 RBI.
