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.

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.
