Allen Craig, who Boston Red Sox owe $11M in 2017, 'swinging bat as good as any time' since trade

Could Allen Craig help the Red Sox in 2017? He's probably in the same situation as Rusney Castillo. It will depend on how well he's playing in the minors and need.

Are The Red Sox Facing An 'Allen Craig Trade Conundrum'?

Are The Red Sox Facing An 'Allen Craig Trade Conundrum'?

(Boston Globe Photo)One guy we did not expect to see on the Red Sox radar this Spring is 32-year old Allen Craig. However, so far this Spring, Craig is hitting .294 with a 1.043 OPS (seventh-best among "regulars"). He's got two doubles and five RBIs in 17 at-bats so far. Manager John Farrell sees more "hard contact" is Craig's swing—the kind of ability that made him one of the most productive hitters in the National League. So, what do the Red Sox do with this guy? They ow him a whopping $11 million this year—but can opt out of his contract in 2018 for a $1 million buyout. So, who's going...

On this day in 2013, the Cardinals signed Allen Craig to an extension - A Hunt and Peck

It was a good run. Ah Allen Craig. While most Cardinal fans now only remember his unfortunate and startlingly rapid decent into baseball oblivion, there was once a time when he was a key cog in the Cardinals lineup. His uncanny knack for timely hitting earned him the nickname the "RBI machine". Craig’s above average bat and ability to play several positions made him an ideal candidate for a contract extension. On March 8, 2013 the Cardinals inked Craig to a five-year, $31 million deal. Though it ultimately did not work out with Allen Craig and the Cardinals, there was still some fine...

Allen Craig continues to impress for Red Sox

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Allen Craig went 2-for-3, including a home run and ground-rule double in the Red Sox' 8-7 loss to the Mets today.He is looking like almost a brand-new player, someone seldom seen on this roster.“The life in the bat is there,” said Farrell. “There's crispness, there's power, a couple of really good swings again today, a walk against (Noah)  Syndegaard in one of the first two at-bats, so he's swinging the bat very well in camp.” Craig is hitting .294 with five hits and 10 total bases after eight spring games.

Allen Craig is focusing on the positive

It’s almost to the point where you feel sorry for Allen Craig. His untenable roster situation aside, he’s already been hit by a pitch three times in spring training, including one off his helmet Saturday, but he’s dusted himself off each time.
