News: Craig is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Dodgers. Impact: A day out of the lineup Saturday didn't do much to enliven Craig's dormant bat, as he produced one hit in six at-bats over the next two games. Craig will give way to Oscar Taveras and Jon Jay in the outfield Wednesday, with those three players likely having to split time among two spots until two clearly separate themselves from the other.(RotoWire, )

News: Craig is not in the lineup Saturday against the Dodgers, True Blue LA's Eric Stephen reports. Impact: Oscar Taveras will man right field with Matt Adams playing first base against righty Zack Greinke. Craig has been given an extremely long leash this season, but the Cardinals have made it clear that Taveras has nothing left to prove at Triple-A, and he will thus need to be given at-bats at the major league level, so when a righty is on the mound, Craig and his .295 OBP is an obvious choice to ride the pine.(RotoWire, )

News: Craig is out of the Cardinals' lineup Saturday against the Brewers. Impact: Craig's playing time has taken a significant hit since Oscar Taveras was brought back to St. Louis. In fact, Saturday's absence marks Craig's fifth already in July. Until the 29-year-old turns things around, he'll likely continue to sit frequently against tough right-handers.(RotoWire, )

News: Craig is out of the lineup Thursday against the Pirates. Impact: Craig hasn't helped his cause by batting 1-for-19 over his last five starts, but it's still odd that he'll sit for the fourth time in eight games. With Oscar Taveras now in the big leagues, the Cardinals' outfield is fairly crowded at the moment, so it appears manager Mike Matheny may be content to ride the hot bats more often than not.(RotoWire, )
