Holliday has been scratched from Sunday's lineup due to a left arm contusion.

It's unclear when Holliday originally injured the elbow, so consider the veteran day-to-day leading up to Monday's series opener against the Diamondbacks. Mark Reynolds will move over to cover Adams' spot in left field as a result of a complete lineup reshuffle.

Holliday is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Mets, according to MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch.

Holliday went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Wednesday's game, but manager Mike Matheny decided to give the veteran a day off with the Cardinals playing an early afternoon affair Thursday. Mark Reynolds will get the start in left field in Holliday's place.

Holliday went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run in Wednesday's 9-0 rout of the Mets.

Holliday has been surprisingly productive this season, as the nice game raised his average to .328. He slumped to just a .272 level last year, and at 35, he certainly isn't getting any younger. Despite all the hits, Holliday has been lacking in the power department, as he's only got three homers on the year. Still, it's hard for his fantasy owners to complain about the stat package he's offered so far.

Contrary to a previous report, Holliday (elbow) is in the Cardinals' lineup as the designated hitter Thursday, Fox Sports Midwest's Jim Hayes reports.

The first lineup the Cardinals released had Holliday out of the lineup with Jhonny Peralta getting the nod at DH, but Hayes is reporting that Matheny will instead give Holliday the start. It is not clear if Peralta is the one getting the day off, or if Peralta will play shortstop and Pete Kozma will sit, but either way, those in full-season leagues should make sure to get Holliday in their lineups Thursday.

Holliday (elbow) is not in the lineup Thursday against the Indians.

Holliday was diagnosed with an elbow contusion after getting hit by a pitch in Wednesday night's game, and the Cardinals will be extra cautious by holding him out of the day game that directly follows. Mark Reynolds will take his spot in left field for the afternoon contest.

Holliday (elbow) left Wednesday's game after being hit by a pitch in the elbow in his first at-bat.

Holliday took a pitch to the elbow in the first inning of Wednesday's game against Cleveland. Despite trying to stay in the game, Holliday was replaced in the field by Pete Kozma. The Cardinals will wrap up their series with the Indians on Thursday and it remains to be seen whether this elbow injury will keep him out of the lineup.

Holliday went 2-for-5 and hit a three-run home run while driving in four on the night in the win over Cleveland Tuesday.

Holliday continues his torrid start to the season, slashing .346/.462/.495 over the seasons first five weeks while driving in 21 runs. He looks well on his way to a slight bounce-back season from the slow decline displayed over the past several years.

Holliday went 3-for-5 with a double in the 7-5 loss to Pittsburgh Saturday night.

Holliday continues to rake, but it's strange as he's become a contact hitter late in his career. With a .354 average it's strange to see Holliday with only a .474 SLG, so it remains to be seen if this is the type of hitter Holliday is now or if a power surge is right around the corner.

Holliday was 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in the Cardinals win over Pittsburgh on Friday night.

It was only his second homer on the season, but Holliday has quietly been one of the more productive players in the league. He is now hitting .340 and has 17 RBI. The third inning home run allowed him to extend his streak to 29 consecutive games reaching base (dating back to last year) and makes him 12-for-21 with runners in scoring position in 2015.

Holliday is out of the lineup Thursday, the Chicago Tribune's Mark Gonzales reports.

This is just a standard day off, as the Cardinals used Wednesday and Thursday to give most of the regulars one off day before the weekend series. Jon Jay gets the start in left field Thursday.
