Cardinals' Matt Holliday expected to miss another week


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Despite that, the Cardinals chose not to activate Holliday from the disabled list for the weekend series. Holliday also won't participate in the All Star Game. 

“We always approach this in a realistic way," GM John Mozeliak said, per St. Louis Today. "He’s an All-Star and we’d love to have him back in the lineup. But I don’t want to have him back for a day or two and then find out he’s going to be out for a longer period of time. I think it makes sense to take the All-Star break and pick up another extra week to let him heal. He’s the type of player who likes to have a little say in this, but he admitted it was best to wait.”
