Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup due to a rain delay. With the rain still pouring, most of the Cardinals regulars will be swapped out in a concentrated effort to prepare for the postseason. Holliday will be replaced in left field by Tommy Pham.
Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday went 2 for 4 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in a 5-1 win over Milwaukee on Saturday. This is just what the doctor ordered, as Holliday has been in and out of the lineup after returning from a quad injury. The Cardinals will surely want to ramp up his playing time going into the playoffs and he should see more at-bats over the final week of the season.
Cardinals OF Matt Holliday is not in the lineup Thursday. Holliday had been held out of the starting lineup with an undisclosed injury for six games before returning to left field last night, going 1 for 3 with a double against the Reds. With the Cardinals gearing up for the playoffs, Holliday's day off is more than likely due to caution and rest rather than a specific injury.
Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday is back in the lineup Wednesday. The 35-year-old is hitting third in the order and playing in left field against Reds' lefty Brandon Finnegan. While it's unclear how long Holliday might play in left field Wednesday, his start is promising considering he last started a game since July 28.
Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday (head) is not in the lineup against the Reds on Tuesday. Holliday did record a pinch-hit at-bat Monday, a positive sign considering the veteran outfielder hadn't played in a game since getting hit by a pitch last Friday. While the plan all along was to monitor Holliday's baseball activities prior to the postseason, his absence from the starting lineup has been frustrating for fantasy owners. Once again, Stephen Piscotty will get the start in left field and bat sixth in the order.
