Holliday sits again, but not likely to go on DL
ST. LOUIS -- Matt Holliday missed a second straight day on Thursday due to a lower back injury that he suffered on Wednesday afternoon. It remains somewhat unclear when Holliday will return to the Cardinals' lineup, but it could be as early as Friday against Colorado.

"My understanding is he should be ready to go tomorrow," general manager John Mozeliak said on Thursday, "but I was also hopeful he'd be ready to go today. 'Day to day' is the phrase."

The club does not expect Holliday to need to go on the 15-day disabled list.

"I think the expectation is that he plays this weekend," manager Tony La Russa said after Thursday's 5-2 win over the Brewers. "But right now I don't know if that's tomorrow, Saturday or Sunday. But when you're messing around with backs, be sure, the best you can."
