      Red Sox's Allen Craig: Outrighted to minors

      Craig was outrighted off the 40-man roster Friday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. The move doesn't come as much of a surprise, as Craig has essentially become a minor league player since going to Boston. In 65 games with the Red Sox over the past two seasons, he's hit just .139, so it appears he will accept his assignment rather than try his luck in free agency.

      Allen Craig makes rare appearance for Red Sox in loss to Yankees

      Allen Craig filled in as the designated hitter for the Red Sox on Thursday night as David Ortiz (general soreness) was held out of the lineup. He went 1 for 4 in a loss to the Yankees. Craig has been a forgotten man on Boston's roster, getting just 22 at-bats in September, but figures to get playing time in the final three games, as the Red Sox are unlikely to have Ortiz play again this season.

      Red Sox OF Allen Craig trying to work his way back into majors

      Evidence is small, but just maybe Red Sox farmhand Allen Craig is beginning to rediscover the stroke and approach at the plate that made him one of the steadiest and most productive hitters in the National League just two years ago. Craig owns a .448 slugging percentage with five doubles and a home run since Aug. 12 for Triple-A Pawtucket. The Red Sox might not promote him when the rosters expand in September, but they know he's making progress. "It's the process with him," PawSox manager Kevin Boles told "Everybody wanted immediate results right away. What we're looking at is the quality of the at-bats and working a count." Craig batted over .300 for three straight seasons in St. Louis, but struggled in 2014 and was traded to Boston, where he bottomed out to start this year. His current slash line of .275/.370/.353 indicates that he is at least getting on base. Beyond that, he's just seeking baby steps. "The goal is to get back to the big leagues," he said. "I try not to look too far in the future. Just try to focus on today, take care of what I need to take care of. I don't make those decisions. I just need to focus on playing."

      Report: Red Sox to option OF Allen Craig

      One could never have imagined just two years ago Allen Craig being sent to the minors. But the Red Sox are on the verge of optioning him, a source has told the Boston Herald. As a player with four years service time, he cannot refuse the assignment. Craig declined to comment when asked about a possible move, but Jackie Bradley was scratched from his Saturday game for Triple-A Pawtucket and would be the logical candidate to take his place. ESPN has claimed that Bradley is on his way to Toronto to join the team. The move would be made to get Craig regular at-bats and back in the groove. He was among the steadiest and most productive hitters in the National League for St. Louis in 2012 and 2013, but has been a mess since. Craig has just seven hits in 48 at-bats this season and has received only sporadic playing time.

Manager John Farrell likes what he's seen from Craig so far that he wants to continue to insert him in the lineup. "He's taking quality at-bats," Farrell said. "I'm giving him a chance to run with it." Craig is 3 for 9 at the plate this month with a home run and two RBI.

      Red Sox outfielder Hanley Ramirez is still feeling the effects of running into the right field wall Monday, but is feeling better, according to Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

      Red Sox's Allen Craig 'ready' in case Hanley Ramirez misses time

      Red Sox outfielder Allen Craig could be facing an increase in playing time after Hanley Ramirez suffered a shoulder injury while crashing into an outfield wall Monday. Craig said he'll "be ready" for the challenge if needed, the Boston Herald reports. "I enjoy playing the game as much as possible," Craig said Monday night. "Like I said before, you never want to get an opportunity because of someone's injury, but I don't want to jump the gun on anything. I hope Hanley's OK. If my name's called, I'll be ready." Craig replaced Ramirez in Monday's game and went 1 for 4 in his team's 5-1 loss to the Rays. He has hit .146/.222/.220 with one home run and two RBI in 41 at-bats.
