Allen Craig injury: Cardinals 1B sent for MRI
Craig, 28, left the team's game against the Reds in the fourth inning after an awkward turn at first base while running out a grounder. Cincinnati first baseman Joey Votto dove for Craig's hit, but threw the ball over pitcher Bronson Arroyo's head. Craig rounded first, but twisted his foot in the process.
After the game, Craig was wearing a walking boot and underwent x-rays in the clubhouse, but tests did not give a conclusive diagnosis of the injury. The ailment is currently being classified as a left foot strain pending the results of his MRI.
Matt Adams replaced Craig at first base Wednesday.
