Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday is heading for the disabled list after being fracturing his right thumb in last night’s game against the Cubs.

Holliday was hit by a Mike Montgomery fastball. The Cardinals aren’t sure how long he’ll be out, but they only have 47 games left. As such, St. Louis will have to do without Holliday’s pop — he has 19 homers on the year — and instead run out combinations of Tommy Pham, Randal Grichuk and Jeremy Hazelbaker to cover for the seven time All-Star.
