Holliday (thumb) will meet with a specialist Monday before another live batting practice session, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Derrick Goold reports.
Friday's batting practice session obviously did not go completely as planned, as the need to see a specialist suggests he's had something of a setback. He is running out of games at this point, as it now seems that the earliest he could return would be in the middle of next week.
Albies (elbow) is expected to be fully recovered in time for spring training, the Atlanta Journal Constitution's David O'Brien reports.
He underwent successful elbow surgery earlier this month, and should be set to compete for a spot on the 25-man roster at the outset of spring training. Albies is the Braves' clear second baseman of the future, and should spend the bulk of 2017 at the keystone for the big club, regardless of whether he makes the roster out of camp.
Rakell was not on the ice for the start of training camp Friday as he continues to recover from abdominal surgery.
The Swede had to bow out of the World Cup of Hockey due to the injury, which is especially unfortunate since his countrymen will square off against Team Europe on Sunday for a pivotal semifinal match. Still, there's been no indication that his status for Opening Night is in jeopardy.
Manager Chip Hale said Saturday that he does not expect Greinke (shoulder) to pitch again this season, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
The results of Greinke's MRI were favorable but he's already been ruled out for Tuesday and it now sounds like he will just shut it down with an eye toward 2017. The last-place Diamondbacks have absolutely no reason to rush the right-hander back into action with five years remaining on his deal. It's uncertain who will take Greinke's spot for the final two turns.
