Cardinals | Matt Holliday X-rays negative
St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (ankle) left his team's game on Tuesday, Aug. 13, because of a high ankle sprain. Manager Mike Matheny reported that X-rays came up negative. Holliday is considered day-to-day. He injured the ankle when, during another player's at-bat, he attempted to retreat with a hard cut to first base after he took a few steps toward second. He stayed in the contest and reached second on a throwing error but was then replaced by a pinch runner.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Holliday will avoid the DL but will probably need at least a couple of days to recuperate. Matt Adams figures to benefit in terms of playing time in the short term.
