Holliday has shed his cast and is now wearing a splint on his thumb, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Less than a week removed from undergoing surgery to repair his fractured thumb, Holliday has started the rehab process at the Cardinals' spring training complex in Jupiter, Florida. He is currently limited to finger movement/range-of-motion activities, but Holliday seems to have every intention of returning this year and that should be realistic barring a setback.

Holliday will have surgery to repair his fractured thumb Wednesday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

A timeframe for Holliday's rehab and eventual return should be known soon after the surgery is performed. During his absence, Tommy Pham and Brandon Moss will likely continue to share time in left field.

Holliday (thumb) visited a hand specialist Monday and a decision on the next step with his injury should be announced by the team Tuesday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Holliday was moved to the disabled list Saturday, and it sounds as though surgery on the broken thumb may be an option for him. A clearer timetable may arise as a result of Tuesday's announcement.

Holliday (thumb) was officially placed on the disabled list Saturday

EDGE Analysis

Holliday took a pitch off the hand in Thursday's game and sustained a broken thumb, which figures to keep him out for close to a month, at the minimum. He'll meet with a specialist on Monday to determine whether or not surgery is necessary, and if it is, the rest of Holliday's season could be in jeopardy. For now, Stephen Piscotty and Randal Grichuk will handle most of the work at the corner outfield spots, though Holliday's injury could prompt the team to make an acquisition. St. Louis officially recalled right-hander Luke Weaver on Saturday to fill Holliday's roster spot.

Holliday, who will officially be placed on the 15-day DL on Saturday with a fractured right thumb, is scheduled to see a hand specialist Monday, at which point the Cardinals will determine whether he needs surgery, MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was hit by a pitch in Thursday's game, suffering a broken thumb, and is out indefinitely while the team decides what the next course of action will be. If he needs surgery, he would likely miss most, if not all of the remainder of the season. If rest is prescribed, he could return sooner, although the thumb could still affect his productiveness at the plate. The Cardinals are rumored to be interested in bringing Carlos Gomez into the fold, which would signify that they are making plans to be without Holliday for an extended period of time. For now, Stephen Piscotty and Randal Grichuk will probably see the bulk of the time in the outfield corners, although Grichuk's time could be a little unpredictable, given the team's other options on the active roster.

Holliday has been diagnosed with a fractured thumb, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is an exceptionally tough blow to a Cardinals team that is in the mix for a wild card spot. Holliday was struck on the hand by a pitch in Thursday's game and immediately left the field in pain. Jeremy Hazelbaker came on to pinch run for Holliday and he could see additional time in left field in Holliday's absence. However, Holliday's power from the right side of the plate will be sorely missed. MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch is reporting that Holliday will be placed on the disabled list, but the move has not been made official at this time.

Holliday has been sent in for X-rays on his right hand, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger exited Thursday's contest after being hit by a pitch on his hand and he was holding his wrist as he left the field. The results of Holliday's X-rays figure to be released late Thursday or early Friday, but this could be a potentially significant development if the tests reveal any sort of serious injury. Tommy Pham or Jeremy Hazelbaker are the likely candidates to take over in left field for the Cardinals should Holliday miss additional time.

Holliday homered and scored twice in a 2-for-4 game Tuesday against Cincinnati.

EDGE Analysis

Holliday hit just three home runs and slugged just .350 in July, and Tuesday's marked his first home run in eight games in August. He mashed 15 home runs in the first three months of the season, which made 2015's four home runs in 74 games seem like an aberration, but the 36-year-old is starting to look past his prime once again. His .769 OPS would be the first time in his career in which he failed to post at least an .800 mark.

Holliday is out of the lineup Sunday against the Marlins, MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Holliday will take a seat for a regular day off after getting five straight starts in left and going 4-for-19 at the plate with five strikeouts over that span. Kolten Wong will take over for him in the outfield for the afternoon contest.
