Cardinals hold off on putting Holliday on DL
Question of the Day
The left fielder had the surgery Friday but the team believes the condition was caught early and he could be back before the end of a 15-day DL stint.
“They’re saying it went well,” La Russa said. “That’s all I know so far.”
David Freese took Holliday’s cleanup spot against San Diego Padres left-hander Clayton Richard, and Allen Craig played in left field. La Russa said he’d likely move Lance Berkman, a switch hitter who’s been more productive batting left-handed in recent seasons, up from fifth to cleanup against right-handed pitchers while Holliday is out.
“I think that’s tough for anybody,” Craig said. “We always want to be in the lineup and be playing every day and it’s easier to make adjustments. But it’s part of my job, and part of the job for all the guys that aren’t playing a lot, to be ready.”
Craig started at all four corner positions last year, with 23 of his 27 starts in right field, two in left field and one each at first base and third base. La Russa said Berkman would stay in right field.
“It’s good to be good at a bunch of positions,” Craig said. “Then they can put you in the lineup wherever they need you.”
