Matt Holliday hit his 18th home run of the season in Thursday's win over the Marlins.
Holliday caught up with a Jose Fernandez fastball, muscling it over the wall just to the left of the right field foul pole. After a 2015 season marked by injury and a surprising power outage, the 36-year-old is once again approaching 20 home runs. If he gets there, it will be the 10th time in his career he's reached the plateau. Holliday is hitting .235/.306/.455 overall. Jul 28 - 10:11 PM

Matt Holliday is absent from the Cardinals' starting lineup on Saturday night.

Holliday took a 95 mph fastball off his nose Thursday, but he played all 16 innings of Friday night's extra-innings win over the Dodgers. This is just a day of rest.
Jul 23 - 4:21 PM

Matt Holliday (nose) is back in the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

Holliday was hit in the nose and upper lip area with a 95-mph fastball from Andrew Cashner on Thursday, but he's back out there a day later. The veteran outfielder is in left field and batting cleanup.
Jul 22 - 4:25 PM

Matt Holliday is considered day-to-day after being diagnosed with a facial abrasion in the nose/upper lip area.

Given the fact that he was drilled by a 95-mph fastball from Andrew Cashner on Thursday, this sounds like the best possible outcome for the veteran outfielder. He may sit out on Friday as a precaution, but expect him to return to the Cardinals lineup over the weekend.
Jul 21 - 9:31 PM

Matt Holliday was forced to leave Thursday's game against the Padres after getting drilled in the face by a 95-mph fastball from Andrew Cashner.

Holliday attempted to stay in the game and run the bases for himself, but the decision was ultimately made to lift him for a pinch runner. He'll head for further evaluation and presumably be put through the full concussion protocol. The Cardinals should have an update on his status after the game.
Jul 21 - 9:20 PM

Matt Holliday smacked his 17th home run of the season Wednesday in the Cardinals' win over the Padres.

It was a solo bomb off Padres starter Colin Rea in the bottom of the second inning. Jedd Gyorko and Yadier Molina also went deep off Rea as the Cardinals took the first game of a doubleheader at Busch Stadium. Holliday is looking to finish strong after a somewhat underwhelming first half. He's sitting on a .787 OPS, 17 home runs, and 55 RBI through 87 games played.
Jul 20 - 5:11 PM

Matt Holliday is not in the Cardinals lineup Saturday against the Marlins.

Holliday was on the field with his teammates before the game so it looks like he's just getting the day off. Tommy Pham will draw the start in left field and bat leadoff Saturday against right-hander Tom Koehler. Holliday has shown booming power this year (15 HR, 52 RBI) but has struggled to hit for average (.237 in 299 at-bats).
Jul 16 - 3:55 PM

Matt Holliday (ankle) flied out as a pinch-hitter in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

Holliday was held out of the starting lineup both Saturday and Sunday after leaving Friday's game with a minor ankle injury. He should be 100 percent coming out of the All-Star break. The veteran outfielder is slashing .241/.316/.451 with 15 homers and 52 RBI in 83 games this season.
Jul 11 - 7:51 AM

Matt Holliday (ankle) remained out of the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

Holliday left Friday's game with an ankle injury and was then scratched from Saturday's lineup. The club has evidently elected to hold him out until after the All-Star break in an effort to get him to 100 percent. Tommy Pham is filling in in left field. St. Louis also is giving Yadier Molina a breather Sunday, as Alberto Rosario is receiving his first career start at catcher.
Jul 10 - 11:34 AM

Matt Holliday (ankle) was scratched from the Cardinals starting lineup on Saturday.

Holliday left Friday's game with a minor ankle injury and apparently it's still bothering him on Saturday. The fact that he was in the initial lineup lends credence to the fact that the injury is minor and shouldn't be a major concern for fantasy owners.
Jul 9 - 1:31 PM

Matt Holliday left Friday's game against the Brewers with a minor ankle injury.

The veteran outfielder twisted his ankle while rounding first base early in the game, and it tightened up on him around the seventh inning. He's considered day-to-day, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him get a day of rest on Saturday.
Jul 9 - 8:36 AM

Matt Holliday was hitless in five trips to the plate in Monday's loss to the Pirates.

He wasn't the only one to have an off day, as the Cardinals managed just eight hits and two runs and two of the base knocks came from pitcher Carlos Martinez. Holliday is in the midst of a 3-for-28 stretch at the plate that has his season line down to .244/.318/.466. However, he's still on pace for 30 home runs and 99 RBI. Holliday hasn't hit 30 homers since 2007.
Jul 4 - 6:37 PM

Matt Holliday knocked in three runs against the Brewers on Friday.

Holliday capped a five-run fourth inning with a two-run single and later added an RBI double in the sixth. The veteran outfielder has been an RBI-machine recently, driving in 12 runs over his last nine games. After an injury-plagued 2015, he's now up to 50 RBI through 75 games this season.
Jul 1 - 11:15 PM

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.
Jun 27 - 11:42 PM

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.
