Cardinals | Jon Jay to see more time

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 15:41:41 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay has taken over the platoon situation in center field over OF Peter Bourjos, and manager Mike Matheny plans on riding Jay's hot stick. "We're getting the guys in there who are taking good at-bats. Jon Jay has been taking some good at-bats," Matheny said. "Allen Craig has turned the corner and right now looks good in that second hole. Peter Bourjos is going to get good opportunities against a left-hander tomorrow. But right now Jon is taking the kind of at-bats we've got to capitalize on. We've got to get something going. Any guy in that lineup has potential to get us going." Jay is batting sixth Tuesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: If you own Bourjos in a mixed league, now is the time to start looking elsewhere, as long as Jay remains hot and in the good graces of the skipper.

Cardinals | Shane Robinson in line for more PT?

Fri, 26 Jul 2013 16:41:27 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Shane Robinson has earned more playing time with his play recently, but manager Mike Matheny has stopped short of saying Robinson is in a platoon arrangement with OF Jon Jay in center field.

Fantasy Tip: Take notice in NL-only leagues if Robinson begins to play over Jay more often. This obviously drops the already limited value of Jay in deep mixed formats.

Cardinals | Jon Jay struggling again

Wed, 05 Jun 2013 11:56:35 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay has only two hits in his last 37 at-bats. Right-handed-hitting OF Shane Robinson drew the start in center field on Tuesday, June 4, against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Tyler Skaggs, a left-hander.

Fantasy Tip: Jay seemed to turn things around in early May following some adjustments at the dish, but another skid has dropped his average to .238, after it had reached .286 just a couple of weeks ago. If this goes on for another couple of months, the Cards may be tempted to try alternatives. They could move Allen Craig to the outfield and get Matt Adams into the lineup regularly, or they could even call up Oscar Taveras, assuming that the top prospect is healthy.
