Cardinals DL Frese, activate Craig

ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis Cardinals third baseman David Freese was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a broken left hand.

The Cardinals activated infielder-outfielder Allen Craig from the DL on Monday before the start of a four-game series against the Florida Marlins.

Freese was hit by a pitch from Scott Linebrink in the sixth inning Sunday at Atlanta. He was batting .356 with two homers and 14 RBIs in 25 games, rebounding from surgery to both ankles last season.

Craig was 0 for 6 in a two-game injury rehabilitation assignment from a groin injury at Double-A Springfield. He was batting .313 with a home run and seven RBIs in 11 games with St. Louis before getting hurt on April 16.
