Craig batted .315 with 13 home runs and 97 runs batted in, and he led the major leagues by batting .454 with runners in scoring position. It is unlikely that Craig could play first base when the Series returns to St. Louis, but neither he nor the Cardinals have ruled it out.

Mozeliak acknowledged Craig might need some at-bats to shake off the rust.
"We're trying to get him as much live pitching as we can," Mozeliak said. "To simulate Game 1 of the World Series is virtually impossible."
