Cardinals’ Holliday returns from hamstring injury

July 27th, 2013 - By Steve James

Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday

has been activated from the 15-day disabled list and is starting

against the Braves on Saturday.

Holliday had been out since July 12 with a strained

right hamstring.

With Holliday’s return, Allen Craig is starting at

first base. Craig played left field with Matt Adams at first base

during Holliday’s absence. Adams is not starting on Saturday.

The Cardinals optioned outfielder-first baseman Brock

Peterson to Triple-A Memphis to clear a roster spot for Holliday.

 

Holliday has a .268 batting average with 13 homers and 47 RBIs.

Peterson, who was recalled from Memphis when Holliday was placed on

the disabled list, had one hit in seven at-bats.
