Manager Mike Matheny said on Monday that he's hoping both Allen Craig and Jon Jay will be ready to go once their stints on the 15-day disabled list are over. Craig has been sidelined since May 17 with a strained left hamstring, and Jay has been out since May 16 due to a sprained right shoulder. Craig will be eligible to return on June 1, Jay on May 31.
Rookie first baseman Matt Adams, who collected his first Major League hit on Sunday in his first game with the Cardinals, plans to send the ball to his family in Philipsburg, Pa. Adams went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles against the Dodgers.
The Cardinals have promoted right-handers Seth Maness and Scott Schneider from high Class A Palm Beach to Double-A Springfield. Taking their places on the Palm Beach roster are outfielder Mike Swinson and right-hander Chris Corrigan.
