The Red Sox placed Craig on the disabled list on Tuesday with a sprained left foot, which he injured after jamming his foot on first base during Boston's game Friday, the only game he's played so far for his new team.
“We just want to make sure we get it right. He feels good. He doesn’t feel he’s that far away from playing. We’re going to try to be methodical on this one because he’s new to the organization,” Boston GM Ben Cherington said.
Last September, Craig tore a ligament in his foot and missed the rest of the regular season before returning for the World Series.
The 30-year-old is hitting .237 in 2014, below his career average of .291. He has seven home runs and 44 RBI.
