Diamondbacks' Jon Jay: In hunt for final bench spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay is looking to claim the Diamondbacks' final bench spot, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Jay, who turned 35 earlier this week, and Josh Rojas, 25, are the most likely candidates to claim the final bench spot. Jay can play all three outfield positions and became a favorite of manager Torey Lovullo during his half-year stint with the Diamondbacks in 2018. Rojas brings greater flexibility in that he can play infield and outfield positions. The decision may come down to veteran experience or youthful versatility.

Diamondbacks' Jon Jay: Joins Diamondbacks on minors deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay signed a minor-league deal with the Diamondbacks which includes an invitation to big-league camp Monday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Jay battled hip issues throughout the 2019 season and managed just a .267/.311/.315 slash line (70 wRC+) with zero homers or steals in 47 games when healthy. The veteran has managed just a single above-average batting line in the last five seasons and likely has his work cut out for him just to earn a bench role.

White Sox's Jon Jay: Transferred to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay (hip) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday.

The move comes as no surprise, as Jay was ruled out for the season for hip surgery last week. This clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the White Sox to select Danny Mendick's contract.

White Sox's Jon Jay: Set for season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay (hip) will undergo season-ending surgery, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

A date for the procedure has not been set, nor is it clear what will need to be fixed once he's under the knife (manager Rick Renteria did not have specifics on the nature of the surgery). Regardless, the veteran outfielder will miss the rest of the campaign after initially injured his hip in spring training, an injury which cost him the first three months. He will be a free agent this winter after joining the White Sox on a one-year, $4 million contract last January.

White Sox's Jon Jay: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right hip strain Friday.

It's possible that the injury explains why Jay hadn't started a game since Sunday, though the fact that he owns a .345 OPS over his last 17 contests would be an equally reasonable explanation. Ryan Cordell was recalled in a corresponding move.

White Sox's Jon Jay: Losing work to Engel
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Twins.

The lefty-hitting Jay is sitting out against a right-handed starting pitcher (Jose Berrios) for the third consecutive game, making it fairly safe to conclude that he's lost hold of an everyday role. The defensive-minded Adam Engel will draw into the lineup for the seventh time in eight contests and looks to have taken over Jay's spot in Chicago's regular outfield.

August 28, 2019 04:40 PM
White Sox's Jon Jay: Not in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay is not starting Wednesday against the Twins.

Jay finds himself on the bench for the second game in a row. Ryan Goins gets the start in right field for the first time this season.

August 27, 2019 02:32 PM
White Sox's Jon Jay: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins.

Jay owns an awful .135/.211/.135 slash line over his last 16 contests. Leury Garcia starts in right field in his absence.

August 23, 2019 03:20 PM
White Sox's Jon Jay: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay was back in right field and went 1-for-3 in Thursday's 6-1 win over the Rangers.

Jay returned to the lineup after sitting out Wednesday's contest amid a lingering slump. Thursday's hit gives him four knocks in his last 42 at-bats.

White Sox's Jon Jay: Sitting amid slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Twins, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Jay is slashing just .077/.143/.077 with no extra-base hits over his past 12 appearances, so he'll head to the bench for Wednesday's series finale in Minnesota to clear his head. In his place, Leury Garcia is covering right field with Adam Engel starting in center.

White Sox's Jon Jay: Slumping in August
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay went 0-for-3 in Tuesday's 14-4 loss to the Twins.

Jay entered the month of August with a .317 average and bumped that up to .330 before hitting the skids. Since Aug. 6, the outfielder is 3-for-39 (.077), a run that's lowered his average to .263 and dropped him to seventh in the batting order Tuesday.

White Sox's Jon Jay: Heads to bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's matchup against the Angels.

Leury Garcia will slide over to right field as Adam Engel gets the start in center and bat ninth against right-hander Noe Ramirez. Jay is battling a 2-for-28 slump over his past eight games. The veteran outfielder is slashing .281/.323/.360 in 97 plate appearances against righties.

August 15, 2019 04:24 PM
White Sox's Jon Jay: Riding bench Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Angels.

Jay retreats to the bench while riding a 2-for-19 slump with five strikeouts over the past five games. Ryan Cordell is starting in right field, batting ninth.

August 14, 2019 01:24 PM
White Sox's Jon Jay: Not starting Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Astros.

Jay led off and started in right field during the matinee, going 1-for-3 with a walk. The veteran outfielder entered the contest mired in an 0-for-16 slump over his previous four games. Ryan Cordell will bat ninth and start in right field for the nightcap.

August 7, 2019 11:24 AM
White Sox's Jon Jay: Takes seat Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

Jay manned right field in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader, so he'll just be receiving some maintenance as a result of the quick turnaround for the series finale. Ryan Cordell will replace Jay in the Chicago outfield, manning center and batting ninth.

August 6, 2019 11:40 AM
White Sox's Jon Jay: Sitting in first game of twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay is out of the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Tigers.

Since the White Sox are playing a day game after a night game and opposing a lefty starter (Daniel Norris) for the afternoon contest, manager Rick Renteria likely viewed it as an opportune time to give Jay a rest. Ryan Cordell will enter the outfield in the veteran's stead, but Jay seems likely to rejoin the starting nine for the nightcap.

August 3, 2019 06:28 PM
White Sox's Jon Jay: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay (abdomen) is starting in right field and hitting cleanup Saturday in Philadelphia.

He was absent from Friday's lineup due to an abdominal issue, but it was apparently a minor injury. Jay hit .317 with zero home runs and zero steals in 82 at-bats in July.

August 3, 2019 02:08 PM
White Sox's Jon Jay: Out with abdominal issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay was unavailable for Friday's game against Philadelphia due to an abdominal issue, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The extent of Jay's injury is unknown at this time. He'll be considered day-to-day moving forward.

August 1, 2019 01:40 PM
White Sox's Jon Jay: Drops out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Mets.

The veteran will get a breather for the day game after starting in eight of the White Sox's last nine contests. Jay hasn't demonstrated any meaningful power boost this season, but the 34-year-old continues to boast strong bat-on-ball skills. After banging out seven hits in his last four games, Jay's batting average now sits at .324 on the campaign.

July 27, 2019 03:52 PM
White Sox's Jon Jay: Sitting against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay is not in Saturday's lineup against the Twins.

He is hitting .304 with zero home runs and zero steals in 69 at-bats this month. Ryan Cordell will start in right field and hit ninth against southpaw Martin Perez.
