Matt Holliday continued his hot hitting Tuesday, finishing 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in a lopsided win over the Phillies.
Holliday was in the middle of the action from the outset, picking up an RBI double in the first inning and coming around to score later in the inning. He's now got 12 RBI and nine runs scored on the year despite having just one homer to his name. His production historically picks up around now -- his career .474 slugging percentage in the month of April is easily the lowest of any month -- and his .383/.500/.467 line through 18 games is plenty productive enough for his fantasy owners right now.

Matt Holliday hit a three-run home run in Saturday's win over the Brewers.

Holliday cranked the three-run shot off of Brewers reliever Jeremy Jeffress in the seventh inning, extending the Cards' lead to 5-0. The Brewers would mount a mini-rally in the eighth, but would not move closer than the 5-3 final. It was Holliday's first home run of the season and gave him 10 RBI on the year. He's currently slashing .358/.478/.434 and remains one of the most quietly productive hitters in the game.

Matt Holliday went 4-for-4 with a walk, but it wasn't enough as the Cardinals lost in 10 innings to the Nationals on Tuesday.

Holliday knocked in the Cardinals' only run with a ninth-inning single to tie the game at 1-1. He was stranded all five times he reached base. Holliday has only one extra-base hit in 50 plate appearances (a double), but has otherwise been productive as his .425/.520/.450 triple-slash line indicates.

Matt Holliday (back) went 1-for-3 in the Cardinals' win over the Reds on Sunday night.

Holliday made an early exit from Saturday's game after tweaking a muscle in his back on a hard second-inning swing. It obviously wasn't anything major. Holliday, 35, has at least one base hit in each of the Cardinals' first 11 games this season. He's batting .361 with an .865 OPS.
Apr 20 - 10:02 AM

Matt Holliday (back) is expected to be in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Sunday.

Holliday's back flared up on Saturday afternoon, leading to an early exit. But it's nothing serious and he should be good to go for Sunday night's series finale with the Reds. The veteran slugger is off to a hot start, hitting .364 with a team-high .476 OBP. He'll have a chance to extend his hitting streak to 11 games if he plays Sunday.
Apr 18 - 5:19 PM

Matt Holliday was removed from Saturday's game against the Reds in the second inning due to mild tightness in his back.

The Cardinals are calling his early exit purely precautionary. It wouldn't be surprising to see the veteran outfielder get a day of rest on Sunday as well, but the team should have an update on his status after the game.
Apr 18 - 2:45 PM

Matt Holliday went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run single to help the Cardinals dispatch the Brewers on Wednesday.

Holliday knocked in both runs with a first-inning single off of Wily Peralta. He has hit safely in all seven games he's played in to start the season, but none of those hits have gone for extra bases. He's also walked six times in 33 plate appearances, giving him a .333/.455/.333 slash line.
Apr 15 - 11:07 PM

Matt Holliday went 2-for-4 and drove home a pair of runs, propelling the Cardinals to a 3-0 victory over the Cubs in Sunday Night's season opener.

Holliday also drew a walk. The veteran outfielder plated the season's first run with an RBI single in the first inning then chipped in another RBI knock in the fifth. The 35-year-old also showed off his wheels deftly swiping a base on a double steal. He's one of the most consistent performers in the league and should be poised for another solid fantasy campaign in 2015.
Apr 5 - 11:25 PM

Matt Holliday said Monday in Cardinals camp that he hopes the team exercises his $17 million option for 2017.

"I'm not too concerned about the money," Holliday told Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. "I like it here." Cardinals owner Bill DeWitt Jr. has indicated to Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the option will likely be exercised. Holliday's seven-year, $120 million contract with the Cardinals has been a big success for both sides, but he will be 37 years old when that 2017 option is due.
Mar 2 - 12:15 PM

Matt Holliday went 3-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Wednesday's loss to the Giants in Game 4 of the NLCS.

With runners on first and second in the first inning Holliday popped out, but he atoned for it with hits in each of his next three at-bats. It was needed, as he had one hit in 13 at-bats in the series coming into the game. Unfortunately for Holliday, he was also a strikeout victim to end the game representing the tying run. The Cardinals now trail 3-1 in the series, so while a comeback isn't likely they'll need Holliday to have more games like Wednesday's if they want to stand a shot.

Matt Holliday blasted a three-run homer to cap off an eight-run seventh inning on Friday, as the Cardinals came from behind to stun the Dodgers in Game 1 of the National League Division Series in Los Angeles.

Holliday finished the night 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored and three RBI. His three-run shot off reliever Pedro Baez closed the book on Clayton Kershaw and wound up being the difference in the ballgame. The veteran outfielder has now tallied 13 homers and 36 RBI over 60 games in his illustrious postseason career.

Matt Holliday (flu) told reporters Thursday that he feels "much better, really good."

Holliday battled flu-like symptoms during the Cardinals' final regular-season series in Arizona, but the veteran outfielder is now back to full strength after several days of rest. He'll start in left field and bat third for St. Louis in NLDS Game 1 on Friday at Dodger Stadium.
Thu, Oct 2, 2014 03:26:00 PM

Matt Holliday expects to be fully recovered from the flu by Wednesday's first postseason workout.

Holliday has been battling flu-like symptoms for over a week and was removed from Sunday's starting lineup in Arizona after the Cardinals clinched the National League Central via a Pirates loss. St. Louis doesn't begin NLDS play until Friday, so the veteran outfielder has ample time to get himself right.

Matt Holliday is back in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

Holliday exited Saturday's contest due to the flu, but he's not going to let it keep him from playing Sunday as the Cards try to lock down the National League Central. The hulking slugger is batting .308/.393/.589 with eight homers and 23 RBI over his last 29 games.
Sun, Sep 28, 2014 01:15:00 PM

Matt Holliday exited Saturday's game versus the Diamondbacks with flu-like symptoms.

Holliday was 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout before leaving the game. Peter Bourjos replaced him in the outfield. Holliday will presumably sit out of Sunday afternoon's regular-season finale, but he should be fully recovered by the playoffs.
