Holliday is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Holliday tallied just two hits over his last seven games and now sits with a .236 batting average, so manager Mike Matheny decided to give him a day off to clear his hand. Brandon Moss will get the start in left field Sunday in Holliday's place.

Holliday had himself a huge night Thursday against the Angels, going 4-for-5 with two homers, a walk, three RBI and three runs.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Angels will be glad to see him and the Cardinals leave town after they were swept thanks in no small part to Holliday's seven hits and three homers in the series. He's now hit two more homers in 34 games than he hit in 73 last season, but Holliday's stats weren't impressing anyone before these last three games; the jury's still out on whether the 35-year-old can stay healthy and productive over the course of a full season at this point in his career. That said, at least you know what you're getting when you roll him out in fantasy lineups.

Holliday went 3-for-5 with a home run, two doubles, two RBI and a pair of runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The veteran had experienced a power outage of late, with just one extra-base hit in nine games heading into Tuesday, but he was front and center as the Cardinals racked up 14 hits in an easy win. Holliday still has just four home runs and 16 RBI on the season, but he maintains some value hitting third in one of the more potent offenses in the league.

Holliday (leg) is back in the lineup Wednesday, batting third and playing left field against the Diamondbacks.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The veteran outfielder exited Monday's game with leg cramps that ultimately sidelined him from Tuesday's tilt. However, the added time off proved to be enough for Holliday to get back into the lineup for Wednesday's contest. He'll be facing Arizona southpaw Patrick Corbin in his return to the lineup.

Holliday (leg) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Holliday left Monday's game with cramping in his leg, and it turns out the setback will cost him at least one more start. It's not clear how much longer Holliday will remain sidelined, but Jeremy Hazelbaker will likely be the primary fill-in until he does.

Holliday left Monday's game against Arizona with a right leg cramp and is listed as day-to-day, Jennifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Holliday had an RBI triple in his first at-bat but grounded out in the third inning and quickly went to locker room. Jeremy Hazelbaker took his place in left field. The 36-year-old is an important bat in the St. Louis lineup so hopefully it's nothing too serious.

Holliday went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in the victory over the Cubs on Wednesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Although the 36-year-old has a hit in three straight games and has hit safely in eight of his last nine start, he owns just a .229 average through 48 at-bats. The good news, though, is he does have three homers. In limited action last season, Holliday hit just four bombs. Last year was the first time since 2005 that Holliday didn't hit at least 20 homers in a single season.
