PITTSBURGH • Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday had to forfeit an at-bat in the ninth inning Tuesday night, having sprained the underside of his right hand swinging the bat in the on-deck circle.
Holliday said he was going to return to St. Louis this morning to see a doctor.
With just two weeks left in the season, the likelihood of him playing much the rest of the way seems slim. Holliday had to be replaced by Corey Patterson for his final at-bat.
"I'm concerned. I've never done anything like this before," Holliday said.
"We'll see what happens. You hope it's just a bruise or something and maybe it'll be a couple days or a day."
But a concerned teammate said, "It's not good."
Holliday already has been plagued this year by an appendix condition that required surgery after the first game of the season; an injured side suffered when he was reaching for a weight in the weight room; a quadriceps injury;and a moth flying into his ear forcing him out of a game.

I see the signing with a St. Louis team curse also affects the Cardinals too.
