Matheny announces Craig will be on World Series roster

(KSDK Sports) -- The Cardinals announced today thatfirst basemanAllenCraig will be on the World Series roster .

Yes, the same Craig that had 97 RBI, and was hitting a major-league leading .454 with runners in scoring position Sept. 4 when he suffered a sprained left foot.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale said, "The Cardinalsactually have the edge at DH: There's no advantage this time for the Red Sox, because the Cardinals' DH happens to be Allen Craig."

On Sunday, Craig declared that he is back, and certainly looked it in the batting cage, spraying the ball to all fields against his teammates, and running fine to first base.

"I'm not a doctor,'' Craig said, "but I feel like I timed it pretty well with the World Series starting this week. I'm starting to feel better.''
