Slumping Yankees send Holliday to DL

Designated hitter Matt Holliday was placed on the 10-day disabled list by the New York Yankees due to a viral infection.

Is it time to panic in New York? A day after sending Starlin Castro (hamstring) to the DL, the slumping Yankees did the same with seven-time MLB All-Star Holliday.
