ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals have activated utilityman Allen Craig, one of the stars from their World Series run last fall, from the 15-day disabled list.

The 27-year-old Craig hit three home runs in the Series and four overall in the postseason. He has been rehabbing from right knee surgery with Triple-A Memphis and was activated Tuesday for the start of a three-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Outfielder Erik Komatsu was designated for assignment. The 24-year-old Komatsu was a Rule 5 selection last December.

If Stan Musial is the greatest Cardinal of all time, who is the second greatest? Share your thoughts.

Craig homered twice Monday night for Memphis while playing first base and completed his rehab assignment with a .353 average (6 for 17) with seven RBIs in four games.

Craig batted .315 with 11 homers and 40 RBIs in 75 games last season.
