Cardinals World Series roster substitution approved

Major League Baseball announced today that it has approved a roster substitution for the St. Louis Cardinals due to an injury sustained by outfielder Matt Holliday. Holliday will be replaced by outfielder Adron Chambers for Game Seven of the 2011 World Series. MLB Postseason rules provide that injured players can be replaced during the World Series if the severity of the injury, as determined by Major League Baseball, is such that it would require a disabled list assignment during the regular season.
