      Allen Craig: Moves to front-office role

      Allen Craig retired from baseball to take a role in the Padres' front office as a baseball operations advisor, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.For a player who hit a respectable but unremarkable .276/.333/.435 over parts of six big-league seasons, Craig had quite a significant career. He appeared in two World Series, winning one in 2011 with the Cardinals, and was an All-Star in 2013. He was credited with the game-winning RBI in three of the Cardinals' wins in the 2011 series.

      Padres' Allen Craig: Re-ups with Padres

      Allen Craig signed a minor-league deal with San Diego on Wednesday, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports.Craig agreed to return to the San Diego Padres' organization after spending last season with the team's Triple-A affiliate. Across 92 games with El Paso, he hit .293/.375/.479 with 13 home runs and 59 RBI, but the 34-year-old never got a promotion back to the big leagues. Craig hasn't played in a major-league game since the 2015 season, though he's not a terrible depth piece for a young team.

      The San Diego Padres reassigned Allen Craig to their minor-league camp Sunday.Craig hasn't surfaced in the big leagues since 2015 and doesn't appear likely to return anytime soon following back-to-back underwhelming campaigns in the International League as a member of the Red Sox organization.

      Red Sox's Allen Craig: Reassigned to minors

      Allen Craig was reassigned to the Boston Red Sox's minor-league camp Sunday, freelance Red Sox writer Maureen Mullen reports.The former All-Star remains in the Red Sox organization, but his career has been on the downswing since he was traded to Boston in 2014. He's spent much of the past two seasons in the minors and looks bound to do the same again in 2017 after hitting just .173 at Pawtucket a year ago.

      Red Sox's Allen Craig: Expected to start in minors

      Allen Craig is likely to begin the 2017 season at Triple-A Pawtucket, regardless of how well he hits during spring training, Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.Craig, who had a double and a home run Wednesday against the Mets, is no longer on Boston's 40-man roster and carries a huge salary ($11 million) that would leave the Boston Red Sox susceptible to the luxury tax. So, while his 1.043 spring OPS looks like he's making a case for sticking on the roster, it's not going to happen.

The former major league All-Star and MVP vote-getter is way off the radar these days -- so far off that he's not on Boston's 40-man roster.
