Worth noting

• Matt Holliday said on Monday that he does not expect to travel to Orlando on Tuesday to play in the Cardinals' game against Atlanta at 12:05 p.m. CT. After a three-day stomach flu, Holliday resumed baseball activities on Sunday. He participated in workouts again on Monday but is still trying to get back to his normal energy level. Holliday hasn't played since last Wednesday.

• The Cardinals' fifth-starter competition will be front and center on Thursday, as both Joe Kelly and Shelby Miller are scheduled to pitch in that game. The appearances will be the third of the spring for each of them. Kelly will start, but Mozeliak said it wasn't important which one got the nod.

As for the competition itself, Mozeliak said, "I think there's some clarity, but no decision has been made. Nor does it have to be today."

• The Cardinals optioned right-hander Jorge Rondon to Triple-A Memphis following their 4-0 loss to the Yankees at George M. Steinbrenner Field, leaving 51 players on their Major League Spring Training roster. Rondon pitched three innings over three Grapefruit League appearances, running up a 6.00 ERA.
