Matt Holliday doubled and launched a two-run homer in Monday's loss to the Royals.
Holliday's two-run shot off of Danny Duffy in the first inning went to dead center and just cleared the wall. While his .258 average and .329 on-base percentage have been disappointing, Holliday has had a nice bounce-back in the power department with a .500 slugging percentage and 15 longballs.

Matt Holliday is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Cubs.

Holliday slugged a big two-run homer in the Cardinals' 4-3 win over the Cubs on Tuesday, but he'll sit out Wednesday's series finale against right-hander Jake Arrieta. Brandon Moss is starting in left field and Matt Adams gets the nod at first base.

Matt Holliday hit a two-run home run to propel the Cardinals to a 4-3 win over the Cubs on Tuesday.

There was no doubt about the two-run shot in the third inning, as Holliday jumped on a hanging slider from Jason Hammel and pummeled it into the left-center field bleachers at Wrigley Field. The 36-year-old is still trying to put it all together at the plate, hitting just .253 on the year, but he's got four homers in his last nine games to give him 13 overall. As the weather heats up, so does Holliday, so more jacks could be in store in the coming weeks as well.

Matt Holliday blasted his 11th home run of the season on Sunday, helping to lead the Cardinals to an 8-3 victory and a sweep of the Pirates in their three-game weekend series in Pittsburgh.

He got the scoring started in the contest with a solo shot off Jon Niese in the first inning. Holliday also collected a pair of singles, finishing the day 3-for-4 with a pair of runs scored and two RBI. He's having another very solid season at the dish, slashing .265/.338/.488 with 11 homers and 36 RBI.

Matt Holliday finished 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI in Saturday's defeat of the Pirates.

Holliday singled twice and clubbed a three-run bomb off Pirates starter Francisco Liriano in the top of the fifth inning. The veteran outfielder is batting just .246 on the season, but he has nine home runs and 31 RBI in 59 games. That's a 24-homer, 81-RBI pace. Not terrible for a 36-year-old.
Jun 11 - 10:09 PM

Matt Holliday is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Reds.

Brandon Moss will start in left field and first baseman Matt Adams will bat third against Reds right-hander Alfredo Simon. It's just a day off for the 35-year-old Holliday, who's slashing .254/.326/.462 with nine home runs and 31 RBI in 56 games this season.
Jun 8 - 2:22 PM

Matt Holliday went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI in Monday's defeat of the Brewers.

Holliday opened the game's scoring with an RBI single in the top of the third inning and then added another RBI single in the top of the fourth before cranking a 467-foot solo blast to left-center in the seventh. Holliday has been on a tear over the last three days and now boasts an .821 OPS with nine homers and 29 RBI in 50 games for the year. He's never finished a season with an OPS lower than .804.

Matt Holliday hit a two-run double in the Cardinals' defeat of the Rockies on Wednesday.

The double off Chris Rusin in the bottom of the third inning provided the only offense of the night, from either side. Holliday also drew a walk in the victory and is now sporting an .810 OPS with 21 RBI in 39 games this season. He had been stuck in a mini slump.
May 18 - 11:13 PM

Matt Holliday crushed a pair of homers and finished with three RBI in Thursday's 12-10 win over the Angels.

Holliday homered in consecutive innings, smacking a solo homer off Jered Weaver in the fourth and following it up with a two-run shot (also off of poor Jered Weaver) in the fifth. The veteran outfielder notched a pair of singles in the game, too, finishing 4-for-5 at the plate. So long as he is healthy, he remains a rock-solid fantasy option. For the season, Holliday is slashing .267/.346/.534 with six homers, 11 doubles, and 19 RBI across 116 at-bats.
May 13 - 2:10 AM

Matt Holliday (leg) tallied two RBI in his return to the Cardinals' lineup Wednesday.

Holliday hit into a run-scoring fielder's choice in the top of the first inning and then thwacked an RBI ground-rule double in the top of the sixth -- both against Diamondbacks starter Patrick Corbin. Holliday, 36, has a cool .850 OPS and 12 RBI in 20 games to open the 2016 regular season. He missed Monday's game due to some mild cramping in his right leg.
Apr 28 - 7:44 AM

Matt Holliday (leg) did fielding drills ahead of Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Holliday is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup after leaving Monday's series opener with cramping in his right leg, but he was stretching for throws at first base Tuesday without issue and he also took indoor batting practice. "He's bouncing around," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny told MLB.com. "Looks like a spring chicken." There was concern because Holliday missed a large part of the 2015 season with consecutive right quad tears.
Apr 26 - 10:14 PM

Matt Holliday (leg) is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup Tuesday night in Arizona.

Holliday made an early exit from Monday's game after experiencing some cramping in his right leg. It doesn't sound like a big deal, but the veteran slugger had right quad problems throughout 2015 so this is certainly something worth monitoring. Jeremy Hazelbaker will start in left field and Matt Carpenter will hit third.
