This is the third straight missed game for Holliday, who has helped anchor the NL Central-leading Cardinals offensively. On the year, he has hit .298/.382/.479 with 20 home runs. St. Louis maintains the injury is not serious and that he is day-to-day.
The Cardinals are already missing offensive stalwart Allen Craig. If Holliday remains out into the playoffs, it could be devastating to the team's chances of advancing.
"Tight and sore today. I totally want to know what's going on," Coke told reporters after he felt tightness following a bullpen session. He is scheduled to have an MRI on Wednesday.
Rondon also had an elbow issue and had not pitched since Sept. 2. He struck out the side in the eighth inning against the Twins on Tuesday to celebrate his return to action.
Segura tested the injury on Tuesday, but it apparently did not go well. With no playoff appearance in store for Milwaukee, the team is more likely to shut him down for the remainder of the season.
Segura has been one of the best young shortstops in baseball, but tailed off in the second half of the season.
Scutaro has been suffering from two finger ailments, including lingering tendon damage in his left pinkie. Most recently, he sprained his left ring finger and will have a splint put back on the injury.
Hultzen has missed most of the 2013 season with shoulder issues, and re-aggravated the injury recently while throwing in the instructional league.
