St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (hamstring) took batting practice on Thursday, July 18, for the first time since he suffered a right hamstring on Thursday, July 11. He stayed in St. Louis during the All-Star break to receive treatment. He's also tested it with some light running, but he must prove that he can run at full speed before he'll rejoin the lineup. "We'll see," was his response to a question about whether he'd be in the lineup for the club's game on Friday, July 19, against the San Diego Padres. Still, MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch surmises that Holliday's improvement thus far suggests that he'll be able to avoid the disabled list.
