Cardinals have officially declined the team option on Matt Holliday.

This was an expected move, as the Cardinals had the choice between a $1M buyout or $17M option on Holliday for 2017. Simply put, the aging star did not produce at a level anywhere near worth that $17M price tag. In the 2016 regular season, Holliday posted a .782 OPS, the lowest of his 13-year career, with 20 homers and 20 doubles across 426 plate appearances. The seven-time All-Star appears to have some pop left in his bat, but he is clearly not the slugger he once was.
