Latest Update Allen Craig is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Sunday. Sun Aug, 31, 10:15 AM
Has shown both the ability to hit for average and drive in a ton of runs. Can play in the infield as well as the outfield, which adds to his value.
Flaws: : Could stand to improve his walk/strikeout ratio even more in order to become a superstar. Also needs to find his big-league niche, defensively.
Craig is really nothing more than a platoon bat these days, so expecting him to be a regular in the lineup means that you're not paying attention enough to your roster. Mike Napoli is at first and Daniel Nava is in right field.Analyst: Howard Bender
After a two-game rehab stint, the Red Sox declared that Craig was fully recovered from his foot injury and have activated him from the disabled list. He is in the Boston lineup for Thursday, serving as the designated hitter.Analyst: Howard Bender
Within days of being acquired by the Red Sox, Craig awkwardly stepped on first base running out a ground ball and sprained his ankle. He's on the road to recovery, and should be back in the Boston lineup towards the end of the week. Analyst: Spencer Silva
Craig hasn't done much since he got traded to the Red Sox and got hurt a few games after they acquired him. He has been one of the biggest disappointments in fantasy baseball this season. Only pick him up in deep leagues as he should return from the D.L. soon, but will not produce solid fantasy numbers.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
