The Cardinals ruled out a left foot fracture for Allen Craig last week, but he’s still a little while away from returning to the starting lineup.

According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said that Craig was re-evaluated earlier today and will remain in a walking boot for another week. It was described as a precautionary measure more than anything else, as doctors don’t want him to push it and aggravate the injury.

“Obviously he got re-evaluated today. You may actually see him in a boot. There’s nothing for alarm. They just feel like he’s still at a volatile stage in the sense that as he’s improving they don’t want him to have a setback by being in a tennis shoe or running shoe. So for the next week or so he’ll be in this soft boot. Everything is positive. When this injury occurred we did not know when to expect him back. We still don’t know exactly. But we’re optimistic that he’ll play this year.”

Craig has thrived as the Cardinals’ primary cleanup hitter this season, batting .315/.373/.457 with 13 home runs and 97 RBI in 134 games. He is missed right now, though St. Louis is fortunate to have Matt Adams as a fill-in option at first base.
