Matt Holliday is not in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

Holliday has been nursing a sore left knee of late, and that, combined with a 0-for-18 stretch at the plate, means he's getting a breather. Jon Jay will start in left field Sunday, with Peter Bourjos holding down center field.

Matt Holliday is back in the Cardinals' lineup Thursday.

Holliday exited Wednesday's contest with a sore left knee, but it obviously wasn't a big deal. The veteran outfielder is batting .267/.368/.417 with 12 homers and 59 RBI for the Redbirds this season.
Aug 14 - 7:51 PM

Matt Holliday was removed from Wednesday's game against the Marlins after his left knee "flared up."

Holliday was removed in the seventh inning, something Cardinals manager Mike Matheny has been wont to do when nursing a lead in the late innings, so it went largely unnoticed until after the game. After the game, Holliday said it wasn't a big deal and that he expects to play Thursday.
Aug 13 - 10:44 PM

Matt Holliday went 4-for-4 with a couple of doubles and a walk against the Marlins on Monday.

Unfortunately, that added up to just one run scored and one RBI, but that's one more run scored and one more RBI that he had in any of his previous five games. Not only has Holliday had an off season so far, but his fantasy numbers have been dragged down by the lack of production around him in the Cardinals order.
Aug 11 - 10:18 PM

Matt Holliday hit his 12th home run of the season in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

The home run was the first run in the Cardinals' three-run seventh inning. Holliday has turned it on since the All-Star break, as Sunday's homer was his sixth in 14 games. He's got 12 home runs and 58 RBI overall to go with a .269/.371/.426 line, and his power should continue to play over the season's final two months.
Aug 3 - 6:38 PM

Matt Holliday hit a solo home run and finished 2-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Brewers.

Holliday hit his home run off of winning pitcher Wily Peralta in the sixth inning. The dinger put him up to 56 RBI on the year. He's slashing .268/.371/.420. His home run numbers are down this year, but he's trending in the right direction, as he's hit four in his last nine games.
Aug 2 - 2:08 AM

Matt Holliday finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

Holliday's blast was the only run either side mustered in the game. He's now got three homers in his last five games and has four since the All-Star break. It was just a matter of time before Holliday's line drives started leaving the park, and now that he's found his home run swing they should continue to come for the next two months.
Jul 27 - 6:50 PM

Matt Holliday had three hits, including his ninth home run of the season on Friday, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Holliday connected on a solo blast off Travis Wood in the fifth inning, knotting the score at 5-5. With the three-hit effort, he’s now hitting .269/.374/.414 with the nine homers, 52 RBI and a pair of stolen bases on the season.

Jul 19 - 5:52 PM

Matt Holliday went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in Friday's win over the Dodgers.

Holliday did the heavy lifting for the Cardinals' offense on Friday, with an RBI double in the first inning and a two-run homer in the fifth. The 34-year-old had a huge second half last year, so fantasy owners will have to hope that something similar is in store for 2014.
Jul 19 - 12:42 AM

Matt Holliday hit a go-ahead solo homer in the ninth inning to lead the Cardinals to a 7-6 victory over the Brewers on Friday.

It finished off a huge night for Holliday, who reached base in four out of his five plate appearances. He also had a single, two doubles, and a walk. The home run was his first since June 16 and just his sixth on the season. The 34-year-old is currently on pace to hit fewer than 20 home runs for the first time since 2005.
