ST. LOUIS (AP) Matt Holliday is back on the disabled list.

The St. Louis Cardinals placed the All-Star outfielder on the 15-day disabled list Thursday because of a recurrence of his right quadriceps injury.

Holliday was hurt running to first base in the first inning on Wednesday. He missed 31 games from June 9 to July 16, and the Cardinals were 18-13 in his absence.

Infielder Greg Garcia was recalled from Triple-A Memphis, and first baseman Dan Johnson was designed for assignment to make room on the roster for newly-acquired outfielder/first baseman Brandon Moss.

Garcia is making his second appearance with the Cardinals this season. He appeared in 12 games from June 19 to July 3, batting .417 (5 for 12) with a tying pinch homer on June 26 against the Cubs.

The 25-year-old Garcia was batting .299 with a .404 on-base percentage and 33 RBIs in 81 minor league games.
