Holliday (illness) was activated and is back in the lineup Friday, serving as the designated hitter and batting fourth.

EDGE Analysis

A viral infection cost Holliday several weeks, but he's set to return to action against the division-rival Red Sox. Holliday was enjoying a resurgent campaign before hitting the DL, slashing .262/.366/.511, so expect him to stay in the heart of the order moving forward. It looks like he remain at DH for the foreseeable future as the Yankees give Garrett Cooper a look at first base.

Holliday (illness) is expected to return to the lineup Friday against the Red Sox, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Upon his activation, Holliday may assume plenty of first base reps given how depleted that position has become. He's put together a highly respectable year (.262/.366/.511, with 15 home runs, 47 RBI and 36 runs in 276 plate appearances) and will continue to be a crucial part of this lineup.

Holliday (illness) is set to go on a rehab appearance starting Saturday, and will likely return for the series against Boston, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Holliday will miss the weekend series with Milwaukee as he continues to recover from an illness that has caused him to be out since June 24. Since there was a chance that Holliday could've suited up Friday, he will likely be able to return to the team following the All-Star break, barring any lingering issues.

Holliday (illness) participated in batting practice but was not activated prior to Friday's game against Milwaukee, Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media reports.

EDGE Analysis

Holliday was absent from the lineup card for the series opener after hoping to return to the team prior to this weekend's three-game set versus the Brewers. The veteran will talk to reporters before the game, but should be considered day-to-day until more information becomes present. If Holliday does not feel close to 100 percent, the team could choose to keep him out until after the All-Star break to give him more time to recover.

Holliday (illness) did some light running and took batting practice Wednesday in hopes of returning to the lineup Friday, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Holliday was placed on the 10-day DL last week after he suffered an allergic reaction prior to a game against the Rangers, but all signs indicate the veteran could be back in action sooner than expected. The 37-year-old revealed the main cause behind the issue was a virus and that he's been steadily improving while battling the nasty infection. The Yankees will be glad to get his bat back in the lineup, as Holliday's 15 home runs rank second on the squad this season.

Holliday (illness) showed improvement Monday according to Joe Girardi, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chances are, Holliday still won't be activated from the disabled list before the All-Star break, but every positive sign means there's a better chance he'll be active for the club's first second-half series against Boston, which begins July 14.

Manager Joe Girardi wasn't optimistic Sunday that Holliday (illness) would be activated from the 10-day disabled list during the Yankees' upcoming six-game homestand to close out the first half, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees have yet to issue an official update on Holliday's condition since he landed on the DL last week with a viral infection. With the All-Star break looming, the team won't rush Holliday back into action and will instead likely let him take the next week and a half to rest up before reassessing his health before second-half play begins. Holliday's absence should continue to open up everyday at-bats for newly recalled prospect Clint Frazier.

Holliday (illness) was moved to the 10-day disabled list Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

With Holliday making limited progress from the viral infection he first came down with Sunday, he'll head back to New York to undergo additional testing while the Yankees finish out the road trip without him. Third baseman Miguel Andujar was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in a corresponding move, but he's not a safe bet to assume Holliday's role as the club's everyday designated hitter. Instead, look for manager Joe Girardi to cycle in a number of different bench bats at DH for the duration of Holliday's absence.
