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.

The St. Louis Cardinals have placed OF Matt Holliday (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring injury. The team has recalled 1B Brock Peterson from Triple-A Memphis.
Fantasy Tip: Holliday suffered the injury before the All-Star break and has not been able to come back. Matt Adams likely will see more playing time at first base with Allen Craig moving to the outfield. Adams is a must-add in deeper mixed leagues but his value may change because his playing time could drop.
