After a being hit by a pitch during yesterday’s loss to the Braves, Cards third baseman David Freese has been place on the 15-day disabled list. One Post-Dispatch report has Freese out for up to a month.
Allen Craig will replace him on the roster. Craig was on the 15-day DL for a groin injury. Here is Hall of Fame Post-Dispatch writer Rick Hummel’s story on the roster move.
Here is a story from Fox Sports Midwest about Freese.
