Holliday (undisclosed) is not in the lineup against the Reds on Tuesday.
Holliday did record a pinch-hit at-bat Monday, a positive sign considering the veteran outfielder hadn't played in a game since getting hit by a pitch last Friday.

Once again, Stephen Piscotty will get the start in left field and bat sixth in the order.
