ST. LOUIS (AP) — Cardinals cleanup hitter Allen Craig says he’s recovered from a foot injury and ready to be put on St. Louis’ World Series roster. Craig, who hasn’t played since Sept. 4 because a left mid-foot sprain, said Sunday he anticipates being the designated hitter in Wednesday night’s Series opener at Boston. Craig batted a major league-best .454 during the regular season with runners in scoring position.

The Cardinals worked out at Busch Stadium on Sunday, two days after beating the Los Angeles Dodgers for the NL pennant.
