Holliday is out of the lineup Saturday against the Dodgers, FOX Sports Midwest's Jim Hayes reports.

EDGE Analysis

He logged seven at-bats in Friday's extra-innings game, which came one day after he was hit by a pitch on the nose, so it makes sense that the Cardinals are giving their veteran outfielder the day off Saturday. Jeremy Hazelbaker will start in left field and hit sixth against the Dodgers.

Holliday is back in the Cardinals starting lineup on Friday, a night after taking a pitch off of his nose.

EDGE Analysis

Holliday was cleared of a fracture on Thursday night, but it was unsure if he would be in the Cardinals lineup on Friday against the Dodgers. Holliday will hit fourth and face Dodgers right-hander Brandon McCarthy. In eight career at-bats against McCarthy, Holliday has no hits and no strikeouts.

Holliday has been diagnosed with a facial abrasion in his nose/upper lip area after being hit by a pitch during Thursday's game.

EDGE Analysis

A fastball clocked in the mid-90s hit Holliday in the face during the sixth inning, resulting in a bloody nose and an early exit for the seven-time All-Star. Fortunately, Holliday was cleared of a fracture and is considered merely day-to-day ahead of Friday's series opener against Brandon McCarthy and the Dodgers.

Holliday left Thursday's game after being hit in the face by a 95 mph fastball, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

He had a bloody nose as a result of the plunking (courtesy of Andrew Cashner) and was promptly lifted for a pinch runner. Holliday, who went 0-for-2 prior to exiting the game, is uncertain for the start of the Dodgers series.

Holliday hit his 17th homer of the season Wednesday while batting cleanup for the Cardinals in Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

While hitting just .245, Holliday's power continues to play well in the middle of the Cardinals lineup. Although the .245 batting average would be the worst of Holliday's career, he's on pace to top 30 home runs for what would be the first time since 2007 when he played in Colorado. He's also on pace to top 100 RBI for the first time since 2012. The Cardinals are second in the NL in on-base percentage, so Holliday should continue to see plenty of opportunities to use his power to drive in runs in his age-36 season.

Holliday is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran started the first game Wednesday, and it's not surprising the Cardinals will give him the night game off, especially given their outfield depth. Jeremy Hazelbaker will get the start in left field and hit sixth.

Holliday went 3-for-4 with a double and a solo homer Sunday against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Holliday got the Cards on the board in the second inning with his 16th blast of the year, but they'd eventually go on to lose the contest. He's struggled this month, as he's only collected eight hits in 39 at-bats, and he's slashing .244/.318/.462 on the season.

Holliday is out of Saturday's lineup against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

He returned Friday and went 0-for-4 after missing a couple games with an ankle injury, but there has been no indication that his absence from Saturday's lineup is related to the ankle. Tommy Pham will start in left field and lead off against righty Tom Koehler.

Holliday (ankle) is back in the lineup Friday against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Holliday was deemed available for Sunday's game after rolling his ankle last Friday, but the Cardinals decided to play it safe and hold him out of the first-half finale, effectively extending the 36-year-old's break slightly in order to get him back to full strength. His current .241 batting average represents a career-worst mark for Holliday (by a significant margin), but he's making hard contact at a career-high rate and is on pace to approach 30 homers.

Holliday (ankle) is not in the lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Brewers, Jim Hayes of FOX Sports Midwest reports.

EDGE Analysis

Holliday is battling a rolled ankle that he suffered during Friday's game, and subsequently sat out Saturday to get extra rest. He will be available to come in to pinch-hit for Sunday's game, but he is not starting as Tommy Pham will replace him in left.
