Cardinals | Jon Jay activated from disabled list

Fri, 29 May 2015 16:15:00 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay (wrist) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) to enter into some form of an outfield shuffle with Randal Grichuk ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) and Peter Bourjos ($2,300, 4.6% of cap), but it is likely Jay earns the majority of starts. Jay started slow this season (.248 batting average), but from 2012-2014, he posted a .293 batting average. He is a low-end outfield option in the majority of mixed formats, and FantasyScore players should view Jay as a low-priced flier best utilized in favorable pitching matchups.

Cardinals | Jon Jay expected off DL

Thu, 28 May 2015 12:55:54 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay (wrist) is expected off the 15-day disabled list on Friday, May 29. RP Miguel Socolovich was optioned to Triple-A Memphis to create a roster spot.

Fantasy Tip: Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) will likely see more playing time with players like Matt Adams on the shelf for an extended period. He is worth activating in matchup situations.

Cardinals | Jon Jay needs rehab assignment

Tue, 26 May 2015 18:10:43 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay will be sent on a short minor league rehab assignment to work on the timing of his swing Tuesday, May 26, with Class A Peoria. Jay will play two or three games on the assignment, and he could be activated Friday, May 29, if there are no setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is serviceable only in deep NL-only leagues. If Jay returns to the top of the Cardinals' batting order, he could be an occasional option in GPP tournaments on FantasyScore, with a favorable pitching matchup.

Cardinals | Jon Jay takes some swings

Tue, 19 May 2015 20:46:28 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay (wrist) took some swings indoors Tuesday, May 19, and also made some throws of the field.

Fantasy Tip: Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is currently on the 15-day disabled list and likely will need to play in some rehab games before he can return. Peter Bourjos ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has been filling in for Jay but is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Jon Jay to DL

Thu, 14 May 2015 07:07:57 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay (wrist) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with left wrist tendonitis Thursday, May 14. OF/1B Xavier Scruggs was recalled from Triple-A Memphis.

Fantasy Tip: Peter Bourjos ($1,900, 3.8% of your cap) will continue to see regular playing time and is a matchup play. Scruggs has no FantasyScore appeal.

Cardinals | Jon Jay could land on DL

Thu, 14 May 2015 06:27:21 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay (thumb) could land on the 15-day disabled list with the team having a thin bench, which requires an added bat.

Fantasy Tip: Peter Bourjos ($1,900, 3.8% of your cap) has filled in but doesn't have a lot of FantasyScore viability. Randal Grichuk ($1,900, 3.8%) has a lot of power and could be a factor once he returns from a back injury.

Cardinals | Jon Jay still out

Wed, 13 May 2015 11:08:26 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay (thumb) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, May 13. OF Peter Bourjos is starting in center field again and hitting ninth in the batting order against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber.

Fantasy Tip: Bourjos ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) isn't a strong play at FantasyScore this evening while facing the reigning Cy Young winner in the American League. Kluber has had a rough go of it to start the year, but he's still striking out hitters at an elite level and isn't walking many.

Cardinals | Jon Jay's injury related to surgery

Tue, 12 May 2015 15:30:34 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay's (thumb) injury is related to the wrist surgery he had in the offseason, according to manager Mike Matheny. Jay is dealing with soreness and a deep bruise in his left thumb. Matheny said Jay's wrist is healthy, but he's been overcompensating, which caused pain in the thumb. Matheny said Jay is expected to be available to play Tuesday, May 12, even though he's not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is hitting just .248 (25-for-101) with no home runs and six RBI while battling through his wrist and hand problems, and it's likely that he'll continue to split playing time in center field with Peter Bourjos ($1,900, 3.8% of cap). It's hard not to like Bourjos as a value play at FantasyScore, even if he's hitting near the bottom of the lineup, and continues to see more consistent playing time with Jay hurting.

Cardinals | Jon Jay remains out Tuesday

Tue, 12 May 2015 11:36:47 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay (thumb) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 12. OF Peter Bourjos is starting in center field again and hitting ninth in the batting order against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco.

Fantasy Tip: Bourjos ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been playing well of late as he's split time in center field with Jay. However, a move to the bottom of the order will limit his plate appearances and ceiling at FantasyScore tonight. He could still be looked at as a sleeper outfield play, though.

Cardinals | Jon Jay a game-time call Tuesday

Tue, 12 May 2015 10:59:02 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay (thumb) will be a game-time decision Tuesday, May 12. He was able to swing a bat without discomfort Sunday, May 10.

Fantasy Tip: Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of your cap) doesn't provide the fantasy punch to risk it on FantasyScore, especially with a thumb injury that can hinder a swing. Peter Bourjos ($1,900, 3.8% of your cap) would likely fill in, and he's hitting .375 the last week. However, he has just four steals in seven attempts, which trumps his value a bit. He's a low-end OF flyer.
