Sidelined since Sept. 4 with a foot injury, Allen Craig will be on the Cardinals roster. He’ll likely serve as the DH at Fenway and return to first base in games at Busch Stadium.
“That gives us more depth,” manager Mike Matheny said on Tuesday. “We have a couple of hitters that we’d love to have in the lineup, and actually all season long we were in that situation . . .
But right now we feel comfortable with Allen as a DH. Once we get back to St. Louis, we’ll reevaluate, but we anticipate him being able to pinch hit.”
Adron Chambers will come off the roster to make room for Craig, who hit .315 with 97 RBIs during the regular season. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
