Matt Holliday's painful season and postseason continued on Thursday night with another unlikely injury, and on Friday, the Cardinals replaced him on the World Series roster with rookie outfielder Adron Chambers, announcing the slugger suffered a sprained right wrist.

Holliday sustained what the Cardinals initially called a "severely bruised" right pinkie finger when he was picked off third base by Rangers catcher Mike Napoli in the sixth inning of Game 6. Holliday explained that third baseman Adrian Beltre stepped on the finger, causing some bleeding and leading him to worry initially that he might have a broken bone. Holliday was removed from the game in favor of Allen Craig.
