Cardinals get good news: Allen Craig’s foot isn’t broken

Allen Craig exited last night’s game with a foot injury that the Cardinals feared could be serious, but Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that an MRI exam revealed no fractures and he’s been diagnosed with a sprain.

Now the bad news: He’s sure to miss at least a few games and could potentially be sidelined for a while, wearing a walking boot in the meantime.

Matt Adams, who made history last night by homering twice after the 14th inning in place of Craig, figures to see most of the action at first base in his absence.

    Good news on AC, hopefully he’ll make his way back into the line up sooner than later

    It’ll be interesting to see how Adam’s does with extended playing time.

    I see Ryan Jackson has made the start at short tonight, I also see why he’s been ignored as any sort of viable option as the black hole that is the STL shortstop position for over a year.

    Time for Mo and Dewitt to go big game hunting at SS over the winter, rock bottom has officially been hit.

    It looks like Furcal was the MVP after the lost year at short. Maybe he still has some gas left in the tank. Hopefully he is fully recovered from Tommy John surgery and will be a Card next year.

      That’s not gonna happen, Furcal’s closer to being retired than being a Cardinal in 2014.

      The Cards have the assets to go on off season SS safari, it’s painfully obvious an offer someone can’t refuse is in order.

    Well, it looks like Lance Lynn’s position in the rotation will be coming to end after tonight’s outing which could be a pre cursor to Jake Westbrook, Tyler Lyon’s or (less) possibly Carlos Martinez getting a shot.

    And yes, I said Jake Westbrook.

    But hey, the Cards starting pitching is fine – just fine.
