Allen Craig is scheduled to have his left foot re-evaluated on Thursday, after which the Cardinals will determine the next step in his rehab process. Craig is expected to have an X-ray taken during that examination. Craig has been sidelined and wearing a walking boot since hobbling off the field in Cincinnati on Sept. 4. He suffered a mild left foot sprain in that game while awkwardly turning near first base.

• Injured reliever Jason Motte teamed up with the Cardinals on Monday to raise money for childhood cancer research. A portion of some ticket sales was donated to that research as a part of Motte's "Let's Strike Out Cancer" initiative. Motte opened the day by spending time at a local children's hospital with teammates Craig and Jon Jay. Additional tickets were also distributed to children and families who have been battling cancer.
