As expected, the Cardinals have activated outfielder Matt Holliday from the 15-day disabled list. He’ll be in the starting lineup this afternoon against the Braves, batting third and playing left field.

Holliday has been sidelined since July 11 due to a strained right hamstring. He was able to make it back in the minimum 15 days and ended up missing 10 games.

Holliday has been a bit of a disappointment this season, batting .268/.351/.448 with 13 home runs and 47 RBI through 83 games. He’s hitting ground balls and infield fly balls at a career-high clip, which has made him a much easier out than normal. The 33-year-old entered this season with a .313/.387/.536 career batting line.
