Matt Holliday out of the lineup Friday

Matt Holliday is not starting for the Yankees Friday against the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact

The Yankees will be without a DH over the weekend, which means Holliday might be limited to pinch hitting duties. Holliday hasn't seen any time in the field yet this season, but he could play LF or 1B this weekend if the Yankees want to get him in the lineup.

Matt Holliday off to solid start

Matt Holliday went 2-for-4 with one RBI and a run scored in the Yankees 8-1 victory over the Rays Monday night. He is hitting .364 with one HR and five RBI on the year

Fantasy Impact

While Holliday has had difficulty staying on the field the past two years, he still managed to hit 20 HR in 110 games for St. Louis in 2016. Look for better production out of Holliday with a full season in the hitter-friendly Yankee Stadium.

Matt Holliday signs with Yankees

The Yankees have signed veteran 1B/OF Matt Holliday to a one-year deal. He will receive $13 million guaranteed in 2017.

Fantasy Impact

Holliday is expected to see most of his time at 1B and DH in an effort to keep him healthy. He totaled 20 home runs in 426 plate appearances in 2016 with the Cardinals, but his OPS was disappointing (.783) and impacted by injury. He's an intriguing source of power at 1B assuming he can remain healthy and see regular playing time in New York.

Matt Holliday cancels simulated game because of swelling in thumb

Matt Holliday canceled a scheduled simulated game on Saturday after his surgically repaired right thumb swelled up after taking batting practice one day earlier.

Fantasy Impact

This setback does not bode well for Holliday to return to the Cardinals' lineup in 2016. Holliday's absence should mean continued playing time for Randal Grichuk and Brandon Moss.

Matt Holliday to face live pitching this week

Matt Holliday will face live pitching later this week in his return from a thumb injury.

Fantasy Impact

Holliday has been out since early August due to the injury. He was in the midst of a disappointing season, posting only a .768 OPS in 380 at-bats, but the Cardinals are hoping he can return for the stretch run. He could be back as soon as next week if all continues to go well in his recovery.
