Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday feels good enough in his recovery from a torn quadriceps muscle that he wants to be activate from the disabled list this weekend, according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

Goold reports that Holliday went through workouts Tuesday in front of general manager John Mozeliak, who said afterward that the Cardinals “are going to be smart about this” to indicate that they may wait a while longer to bring back Holliday.

Also of note: Holliday plans to play in the All-Star game after being voted into the National League starting lineup by fans even though he hasn’t played for the Cardinals since June 8. Mozeliak seems less than enthused about that idea, however.
