PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (KMOV) - Colby Rasmus is back in the lineup today Sunday when the St. Louis Cardinals take on the New York Mets at the newly-named Digital Domain Park.

Rasmus has not played since Wednesday when he cut his knee trying to break up a double play sliding into second base.

Sunday's game marks the sixth time the two teams have met in Grapefruit League action. The Cardinals look to make it the third win in a row against the Mets after losing the first three games earlier in the spring.

New York Mets hurler Mike Pelfrey will get the start Sunday against the Cardinals. Pelfrey is 0-2 so far in Grapfruit League play with a 7.36 ERA.

Both Matt Holliday and Skip Schumaker will get the day off and are absent from today's lineup. Allen Craig will take Holliday's place in LF with do-everything man Felipe Lopez filling in for Schumaker at 2B.
