ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Matt Holliday says he's closer to returning to the St. Louis Cardinals' lineup. The cleanup hitter played catch and ran a few sprints Tuesday, four days after having an appendectomy. Holliday assumes he'll be on a 10-game West Coast trip that starts Friday.

Holliday said the big test will be swinging a bat and he might try on Wednesday. Holliday hasn't played since going 3 for 4 with a home run in the season opener.
