Mon Aug 1816:19Matt 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.

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 was removed from Wednesday's game due to left knee soreness, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Tue Jun 2414:42Matt Holliday could remain in No. 2 spot
Cardinals manager Mike Matheny indicated on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM on Tuesday that Matt Holliday could remain in the No. 2 spot in the order.
Holliday has batted second in each of the last two games. He's still getting on base at a high clip, but not hitting for as much power as in the past, so it's worthwhile experiment for St. Louis.

Sun Jun 2212:01Matt 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.
