|Mon Aug 18||16:19||Matt Holliday: (Sore Knee) Back in Lineup Monday|
Holliday (sore left knee) will start in left field Monday vs. the Reds.
Holliday was rested Sunday both in part to a balky knee and his 0-for-18 slump at the dish, but the Cardinals are banking on the therapy day revitalizing the veteran. Normally a safe candidate to deliver 20-to-25 home runs and an average near .300 on an annual basis, Holliday is batting just .260 on the campaign and is on pace to finish with only 16 round trippers.
|Mon Aug 18||11:15||Holliday bothered by sore left knee which factored into manager ...|
Holliday has been bothered by a sore left knee which factored into manager Mike Matheny's decision to sit the veteran on Sunday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Holliday is in an 0-for-18 slump and has dealt with soreness in that knee prior to this season. It's unclear if Matheny will rest Holliday for any more games in an attempt to get him feeling healthy again.

Holliday (knee) is in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Padres.
Holliday's left knee flared up Wednesday night, prompting his removal in the seventh inning, but it seems the decision was largely precautionary on the Cardinals' behalf. He will return to right field and the three-hole in the order Thursday to face lefty Eric Stults, against whom he's 3-for-8 with a homer in his career.

|Sun Jun 22||12:01||Matt Holliday moves up to No. 2 spot|
Matt Holliday is batting second for the Cardinals Sunday.
It's the first time since 2010 that he's hit in the No. 2 hole. Holliday has been getting on base (.376 on-base percentage) but not hitting for power (.388 slugging percentage), so it's a move that makes sense. Matt Adams has moved up to the No. 3 spot, while Allen Craig is hitting cleanup.
