Matt Holliday was scratched from the Cardinals’ lineup last Wednesday, with manager Tony La Russa explaining that he “felt something in his rib cage.” Eight days later he’s still on the sidelines.
La Russa replied “not yet” when asked by Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch if he’s worried about Holliday’s status, adding: “He’s a veteran. He’s got a good idea. I think he’s making progress. He’s improving, but he hasn’t been cleared to play, so I’m going to take it easy with him.”
Holliday did some running in pre-game drills this morning, but hasn’t been cleared to resume hitting yet with what has been officially diagnosed as a strained right rib cage.
