Day 45: Nationals @ Cardinals

Jenifer Langosch/MLB.com

Matt Holliday, who was a late scratch from Tuesday’s lineup with left side tightness, is scheduled to play today. That certainly should hush any concerns about this being an issue that could keep Holliday out for some time. Both he and manager Mike Matheny were pretty quick to note yesterday that this was nothing to be worried about.

Allen Craig shifts to right field today, allowing room for Matt Adams to play first. There’s a good chance you will see some of this during the regular season on days when Carlos Beltran sits.

  1. Shane Robinson (CF)
  2. Daniel Descalso (3B)
