Cardinals OF Matt Holliday looking to avoid another slow start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) By Matt Holliday's standards, the Cardinals outfielder's 2014 season didn't quite measure up to previous seasons. Although, the 35-year-old outfielder refuses to blame his decline in production on his age.

"It was one of those things where I couldn't figure out what was going on in the first half," Holliday said, per MLB.com. "I couldn't get comfortable. I couldn't find the timing I wanted in my swing. You start questioning what you're doing with your swing and stuff like that. I got in a bad place."

The numbers support Holliday's claim. He hit .265 with a .389 slugging percentage, .762 OPS, six home runs and 45 RBI in 93 first-half games before batting .281 with a .515 slugging percentage, .882 OPS, 14 home runs and 45 RBI in 63 games after the All-Star break.

"After the break, I felt like I found it and was able to have a good second half," Holliday said. "I'm proud of that. But I'd like to do without the bad first half and have two good halves. That's where I want to be."

Although he hasn't homered in 11 spring games, Holliday is batting .333 (8 for 24) with two doubles, two RBI and four walks.


Cardinals OF Matt Holliday exits game after getting hit by pitch


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday left Monday's game against the Red Sox after being hit by a pitch, according to MLB.com.

His removal from the game had more to do with the rainy conditions than Holliday being injured.

"He probably would have run," manager Mike Matheny said. "But once the conditions started getting bad, as soon as it starts raining, I'm usually going to try to get the guys out."

Holliday, 35, is hitting .348 this spring.


Cardinals' Holliday: Matt Carpenter should be more aggressive


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday has been pressing third baseman Matt Carpenter to be more aggressive at the plate at informal workouts before the official start of camp, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

"It’s great to walk and have long at-bats but he’s got the potential to hit 50 doubles. We’ve seen it," Holliday said. "He’s got the potential to hit 15 to 20 homers. We saw that in the postseason. It’s fine that first at-bat of the game if you want to take some pitches. But I’d like to see him be a little bit more aggressive. It’s in there. He showed it. It’s in there for all of us."

Carpenter, slugged three home runs during last year's National League Division Series after adopting a more aggressive approach, hit .272/.375/.375 with eight home runs and 59 RBI in 595 at-bats in 2014. The infielder also led the league in base on balls by drawing 95 walks.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2015) Cardinals outfielder Jason Heyward has been an early participant in spring workouts this week at the team's spring training complex in Florida, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

"For me, right now, it’s good to get a sweat, get workouts in, come in on a daily basis, get in our routine and the groove of things so everything naturally jells together before spring training starts," Heyward said Thursday.

Heyward is one of a handful of players in Jupiter who were on the practice field Thursday for an informal Cardinals workout. Among the other St. Louis players reporting to camp early are veterans Adam Wainwright, catcher Yadier Molina and outfielder Matt Holliday.
