He's not like Chone Figgins who is known for pounding the base paths (though the 8SB's have been nice so far from him) so I think he'll take it easy when he first comes back and should be alright.

I disagree completely with this sentiment. Personally I would stay away from Holliday at this point. Think about Arod who returned too quickly and was out for 4 weeks. Think Tulowitzki who has been rehabbing his own hamstring injury. While you are correct that he is not a burner on the basepaths and thus doesn't put as much strain on his hammy, but I dont think at this point you can assume he will be fine with the 15 days. I'd wait to see he's healthy before I dealt for his injury risk...

If you're a risk taker now wouldn't be a bad time, he starts his rehab assignment in Triple A tomorrow so it sounds like the pull wasn't very bad.
