Allen Craig suffers mid-foot sprain;

First Baseman will be re-evaluated early next week

St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Allen Craig was diagnosed with a mid-left foot sprain earlier today after having undergone repeat x-ray and MRI exam. Craig's evaluation, performed by Dr. John Nadaud, a Foot and Ankle Specialist from Mercy Hospital, determined that Craig has a mid-foot sprain and that no fracture is present. Craig will wear a walking boot for protection and will be re-evaluated early next week by Dr. Nadaud and the Cardinals medical staff.
