St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday is likely to return this season after suffering another quadriceps injury, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Holliday suffered a recurrence of a strained right quadriceps that cost him six weeks earlier this year, and it was initially feared that he would be out much longer this time. "We’re still very hopeful that he’ll be able to contribute this year,” Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Thursday. “A lot will be really determined over the next week or two. It’s my understanding that it’s not as deep as last time, which is encouraging, but you’ve still got to [give it time to] heal. It’s very disappointing because we were hopeful that he’d be back in that lineup. When he was playing, you saw the glimpses of why he’s important to this team.” Holliday will be reevaluated in one to two weeks, at which point a firmer timetable for his recovery could be established.

St. Louis Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right quadriceps, according to USA Today. He suffered the injury -- an aggravation of his previous quad ailment -- in Wednesday's 1-0 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. Holliday was already on the disabled list from June 9 to July 12 due to a previous injury to the same muscle, missing 31 games of action. There is no word yet on how much time Holliday will miss with this latest issue, but St. Louis acquired outfielder Brandon Moss from the Cleveland Indians on Thursday. Holliday, who is hitting .290 with four home runs and 31 RBI, has played in 63 of the Cardinals' 111 games this season. This year will be the first time he's played in fewer than 120 games in his 12-year career.

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday is likely to be placed on the 15-day disabled list on Thursday with a strained right quadriceps, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Holliday sustained the injury during Wednesday's game while trying to beat out a double play and was removed afterward. The veteran spent six weeks on the disabled list with the same injury earlier this season. "Only thing I do know, it's the same spot as before," manager Mike Matheny said. "He's getting a MRI tonight. No results as of yet, but trying to get it looked at as quick as possible to see the severity. I can't deny the fact that it plays into the equation [at the trade deadline]. I think once we have a better idea of what kind of severity there is to the injury, we'll have a better idea of what we need to do to move forward. I don't think this is something that we would completely write off as an area where we'd have to look." More information will be released when the results of Holliday's MRI are available.

Holliday (quad) expects to increase the intensity of his running over the next couple days in order to rejoin the lineup Friday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Holliday has been sidelined since early June with a partial quad tear, but appears on the cusp of rejoining the team. There were talks of him serving as a pinch hitter before the All-Star break, but the club decided to hold him out instead. If no setbacks occur, it seems highly possible that he'll rejoin the club.

Holliday (quad) will be sidelined through the All-Star break, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Holliday performed some drills prior to Friday's game, and apparently something wasn't quite right. He'll receive some added rest with the All-Star break, which could be enough time for him to rejoin the lineup.

Holliday (quad) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Friday, but would likely be limited to pinch-hitting at the start, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

While Holliday may be ready to return offensively, he's reportedly still not ready to play the field. As a result, he would likely only see occasional at-bats over the weekend series. With the All-Star break on the horizon, it's conceivable that he will be good to go for the start of the second half if all goes well over the next few days.

Holliday (quadriceps) is "less likely" to return before the All-Star break than earlier reports indicated, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

There was optimism earlier in the week that Holliday could come off the DL for the Cardinals' series this weekend, but the Cardinals are exercising caution with the star outfielder and won't rush him back prematurely. While it's unlikely that Holliday will return this weekend, he has still not been ruled out at this point.
