News: Holliday (sore left knee) will start in left field Monday vs. the Reds. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: 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. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Holliday is out of the lineup Sunday against the Padres, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Impact: Holliday has started eight straight games for the Cardinals, but will give way to Jon Jay on Sunday afternoon, while Jhonny Peralta will move up to third in the order. In the midst of an 0-for-18 slump, a day off was likely due for the veteran.(RotoWire, )

News: Holliday (knee) is in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Padres. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )
