Padres | Jon Jay could start in San Diego

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 16:33:15 -0800

San Diego Padres OF Jon Jay could end up starting in center field for the Padres, as general manager A.J. Preller stated he doesn't see his new trade acquisition as being simply a platoon fit or left fielder.

Fantasy Tip: Jay will certainly have a solid chance at securing the center field job, needing only to fend off the likes of Melvin Upton Jr. and Travis Jankowski, both of whom provided lackluster numbers for the Padres last season. So, too, did Jay, although he was also dealing with a wrist injury. He should be fully healthy in 2016, though, and if he does become the everyday centerfielder in San Diego, the former Cardinal will be a fine sleeper candidate in the upcoming season.

Padres | Jon Jay headed to San Diego

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 07:37:45 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay was acquired by the San Diego Padres in exchange for 2B/SS Jedd Gyorko Tuesday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Jay's 2015 was a wash because of a wrist injury, but he figures to play quite a bit in San Dawg. The spacious gaps could help him return to being a .300 hitter, but he's more of an NL-only option than in mixed leagues.

Mariners | Seattle wants athletic OF

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 10:13:33 -0800

The Seattle Mariners may be inclined to trade for the likes of New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner, St. Louis Cardinals OFs Jon Jay or Peter Bourjos, Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin or Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. rather than sign impending free-agent OFs Dexter Fowler (Cubs), Austin Jackson (Cubs) or Denard Span (Nationals).

Fantasy Tip: Gardner is likely Seattle's top trade target and is the biggest fantasy name of the bunch. A move to pitcher-friendly Safeco Field would turn many off to Gardner, but that could make him a better value pick in 2016 fantasy drafts for his speed.

Cardinals | Two Cards outfielders sitting

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 15:16:35 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk and OF Stephen Piscotty (head) are out of the lineup Saturday, Oct. 3, with OF Jon Jay hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has struggled with wrist injuries all year and isn't a good play on FantasyScore against Shelby Miller.

Cardinals | Stephen Piscotty remains out

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 14:38:45 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty (head) remains out of the lineup for Game 2 of the doubleheader against the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, Sept. 30. OF Jon Jay starts in center field again and is hitting second against Pirates SP Charlie Morton.

Fantasy Tip: Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) hasn't done much this year or this month and has been hurt mainly by injuries. He's a much better defensive player than he is with the stick, so consider him a low-end outfield play on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Stephen Piscotty sits

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 08:11:51 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty (head) is out of the lineup for Game 1 of a doubleheader Wednesday, Sept. 30, with OF Jon Jay hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is 3-for-9 (.333) against Gerrit Cole. However, Jay is a singles hitter facing an absolute horse today. He's not a great option on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Cards continue to rest injured stars

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 14:41:40 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk (elbow), OF Matt Holliday and 1B Matt Adams are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 16. OFs Tommy Pham and Jon Jay will receive the starts against Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta Wednesday, Sept. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) and Adams ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) recently came off the DL with quadriceps injuries, and the Cardinals will not rush them into the starting lineup in the next few weeks as they look to get them healthy for the playoffs. The same goes for Grichuk ($4,900, 9.8% of cap). As a result, they could be tough to rely on for fantasy owners down the stretch. Holliday is really the only one worth hanging onto in traditional leagues, and he can make the most impact on FantasyScore if he's starting.

Cardinals | No Randal Grichuk Friday

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 10:51:40 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk (elbow) remains out of the lineup Friday, Sept. 11. OF Jon Jay is starting in center field and is batting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Michael Lorenzen.

Fantasy Tip: Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) hasn't done much in 2015 and has missed valuable time due to injury. He's batting only .226 (33-for-146) with one home run and seven RBI against right-handers this year. You can do much better than him on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Jon Jay playing center field

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 10:44:17 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay will bat eighth and play center field against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Charlie Morton Saturday, Sept. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has a rather favorable matchup this afternoon, so FantasyScore owners looking for an inexpensive outfield option may want to consider using him. He is 9-for-20 (.450) with two doubles and three RBIs against Morton in his career.

Cardinals | Jon Jay activation expected

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 14:42:20 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay (wrist) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Friday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has been out since Wednesday, July 1, with the wrist injury, and he was having the worst season of his career before the DL stint. He figures to see close to semi-regular at-bats, though, which makes Jay a worthy own in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues. Still, you'll want to keep your expectations in check.
