News: Craig is out of the lineup Monday against the Orioles. Impact: Craig failed to make the most of the five consecutive starts he received from Wednesday through Sunday, going 1-for-14 with eight strikeouts. He's batting just .109 since joining the Red Sox, and at this point, can probably be dropped in most formats.(RotoWire, )

News: Craig is out of the lineup Friday against the Blue Jays. Impact: Daniel Nava will man right field again Friday in place of Craig, who's in the midst of an 0-for-15 slump. Craig is just 4-for-38 since joining Boston and could end up playing second fiddle to Nava if he doesn't pick it up soon.(RotoWire, )

News: Craig went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in Wednesday night's loss to the Yankees. In 10 games with Boston, Craig is 4-for-36 (.111) with 15 strikeouts in 41 plate appearances. Impact: This is not the Craig the Sox thought they were getting when they acquired him for John Lackey. Craig refuses to blame lingering effects of the foot injury he suffered a year ago, which he opted to rest rather than undergoing surgery, or the inconsistent playing time he's getting with Boston. But something's clearly not right, as Craig now has a season line of .226/.285/.337 combined between St. Louis and Boston. A couple of weeks ago, according to ESPN Boston, manager John Farrell acknowledged that surgery may be in the offing. "The injury he had last year was something that was given rest and recovery, rather than repair," Farrell said. "I guess it's debatable whether a repair was needed or recommended, but they chose the conservative path."(RotoWire, )
