• Matheny confirmed Thursday afternoon that the Cardinals will start Joe Kelly on Saturday in Atlanta.

• With a doubleheader against Pittsburgh on Tuesday, Matheny said both Michael Wacha and Tyler Lyons are candidates to make a spot start in one of the two games. The Cardinals will take advantage of the 26th-man rule, which will allow them to add an extra pitcher to the roster for that day.

• Holliday is expected to come off the disabled list Saturday, and Matheny said the outfielder will travel with the team to Atlanta. Holliday and his wife, Leslee, welcomed their fourth child and third son Wednesday night.
