Cards' Holliday ponders options on broken right thumb

CHICAGO — Cardinals OF Matt Holliday will have his broken right thumb, sustained Thursday against the Cubs, re-examined early next week before deciding on treatments including surgery or letting the injury heal on its own, GM John Mozeliak said.

Holliday, who saw the team's hand specialist in Chicago on Friday morning, is out indefinitely. He was hit by a fastball from Mike Montgomery.

Brandon Moss took his spot in left for Friday's game.

ASTROS: OF Preston Tucker went on the 15-day disabled list. The former Plant and UF standout has a strained right shoulder.

INDIANS: DH Carlos Santana sat out Friday, a day after suffering a contusion on the right side of his head when he was hit by teammate Francisco Lindor's foul ball in the dugout.

METS: Billy Bean will throw out the first pitch for Mets Pride Night against the Padres tonight. The former player is Major League Baseball's vice president for social responsibility and inclusion.
