Holliday headed to DL; Hanley to follow?
Holliday is thriving this season, hitting a league-leading .342 with six home runs and 31 RBIs, and we should remember he missed a week earlier this season following an appendectomy, which likely depressed his power for some time. This current quad injury is unrelated, and I would stop short of calling Holliday a brittle player. Muscle strains are common, and there are probably many we never find out about; Holliday started a game earlier this week, which is unfortunate because his DL stint could have been backdated, but regardless the Cardinals do not expect him to miss significant time. Let the injury heal and he can resume his season. Hopefully he can even start stealing bases.
