St. Louis Cardinals All-Star first baseman Allen Craig left September 4th's game against the Cincinnati Reds with a left foot sprain, an injury that kept him out of the National League Division Series.
ESPN insider Buster Olney originally tweeted the unfortunate development for the Cardinals:
Oh, boy -- Allen Craig on the ground after rolling his left ankle. Coming out of the game.— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) September 5, 2013
Craig was left off the NLCS roster vs. Los Angeles. He is on the roster for the World Series in a DH role. However, Craig started at first base for the Cardinals in Game 5.
