Holliday (quadriceps) took batting practice Saturday, Luke Thopmson of FOX Sports Midwest reports.

Holliday has been incrementally increasing his baseball-related activities in recent days, with the batting-practice session representing his latest step forward. Manager Mike Matheny hopes that Holliday will resume running within a couple of days, after which the Cardinals might be able to etch out a timetable for his return. Holliday only had three homers and 26 RBI across 178 at-bats prior to suffering the partial quad tear in early June, but owns an excellent .417 on-base percentage on the season.

Holliday is expected to test his injured quad with some running next week, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

He's been ramping up his activity in recent days, hitting off a tee and throwing, but Holliday has yet to progress to running after suffering a Grade 2 quad tear in early June. Regardless, the Cardinals are still holding out hope that he could return before the All-Star break.

Holliday (quad) has been hitting off a tee and throwing, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

While the Cardinals haven't provided an estimate or timetable, Holliday seemingly remains on track for a return at some point in July. His increased activity level suggests he could be back before the All-Star break, but Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said the team will take a cautious approach.

Holliday (quadriceps) seems to be recovering well from the Grade 2 tear he suffered in early June, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Wainwright said "We've got some guys coming back soon. Matt (Holliday) will be back." That's good news for fantasy owners, Holliday was due to be reevaluated later this week so his status should be clearer then.

Holliday has been diagnosed with a partial quadriceps tear and will be reevaluated in two weeks, the St. Louis Post Dispatch's Derrick Goold reports.

Teammate Matt Adams suffered a complete tear earlier this season, which required surgery, but Holliday's Grade 2 tear means he may be able to avoid surgery. He was already going to miss two weeks after being placed on the 15-day DL, but it now sounds like the recovery process will exceed the minimum stay on the DL.

Holliday (quad) has been placed on the 15-day DL.

Holliday departed Monday's game and was later diagnosed with a right quad strain. The team has not provided a firm timetable, but Holliday will miss at least a couple of weeks, meaning Jon Jay is likely to see a bump in playing time. To fill Holliday's roster spot, the Cardinals called up right-handed pitcher Miguel Socolovich from Triple-A Memphis.

Holliday's injury has been clarified as a right quad strain, MLB.com's Tracy Ringolsby reports.

He left Monday's game after suffering the injury and will reportedly be examined further Tuesday. Jon Jay replaced Holliday in left field and will likely see a short-term boost in playing time if the injury persists.

Holliday left Monday's game against the Rockies after suffering an apparent leg injury.

He was able to walk off the field under his own strength after apparently jamming his knee, so it initially appears that Holliday avoided serious injury. We'll await a postgame update, but consider him day-to-day at this point. Jon Jay replaced him in left field.

Holliday was ejected by home plate umpire Joe West for arguing a called third strike in the seventh inning Tuesday, ending his National League-record 45-game on-base streak.

Holliday was just eight games away from tying Derek Jeter's all-time mark of 53, so he was understandably upset by the blown call by West. He finished 0-for-3 with the lone strikeout and will look to put the ejection and the impressive on-base streak behind him in his next outing.

Holliday (illness) went 1-for-3 with a walk in Monday's loss to the Brewers.

He was scratched from the lineup Sunday due to illness, but Holliday was able to play all nine innings in the loss Monday and is seemingly fit for regular duty throughout the upcoming week as a result.
