Good news here for the hobbled Cardinals.

According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-DispatchAllen Craig tested his strained left hamstring Wednesday with “some running” and is planning to take batting practice on the field before Thursday’s series-opener against the Phillies.

Craig has been on the 15-day disabled list since May 17 and is eligible to be activated on June 1.

The 27-year-old first baseman and corner outfielder is batting .373/.424/.765 with five home runs, five doubles and 19 RBI in just 59 plate appearances this season. St. Louis currently has a half-game lead over the Reds in the National League Central standings.

    Did you mean he has been on the DL since may 17? I thought he was playing this month but I could be wrong.
