St. Louis has placed left fielder Matt Holliday on the disabled list with a strained quadriceps muscle suffered during Monday’s game.

Holliday has remained very valuable at age 35 despite his power disappearing by hitting .303 with a 39/33 K/BB ratio in 52 games for a career-high .417 on-base percentage that ranks fourth among NL hitters.

They’re already without first baseman Matt Adams, possibly for the remainder of the season, but the Cardinals are still relatively well equipped to handle Hollliday’s absence thanks to the presence of 23-year-old Randal Grichuk.

And of course having an MLB-best 38-20 record helps too.
