by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Move down lineup sparks Jon Jay


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2013) Cardinals outfielder Jon Jay had his ninth multi-hit game in his last 17 appearances Monday against the Padres. He's batting .414 (24 for 58) with two home runs, four doubles and 15 RBI in that span.

Jay has been thriving since being moved out of the leadoff spot in the lineup. He has hit .215 in 19 games as the leadoff hitter, but he's hitting .250 or better batting second, fifth, sixth, seventh and ninth. He's done exceptionally well hitting sixth (.385) or seventh (.407).

"Those numbers for his lack of production in the past were kind of false numbers," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "He takes good at-bats. You don’t see him do much different with guys in scoring position. I know the year before last, he was known as a guy who wasn’t driving in runs. I think he’s proved to himself that he’s able to do that when the situation presents itself."

Buying back in on Jon Jay


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2013) Cardinals outfielder Jon Jay spent most of April doing a great job of inadvertently arguing for top prospect Oscar Taveras' call-up. He batted just .213 with six extra-base hits in 89 at-bats. Since the start of May, however, he has completely turned things around, and is once again worth a look in Fantasy.

Jay is batting .378 in May, and his improvement can be traced to one very important development: his strikeout rate. After striking out 17 times in 89 at-bats in April, he has struck out just six times in 41 May at-bats.

As long as Jay keeps hitting, cries for Taveras' call-up will be quiet, and he will have a steady job. Jay is a steady hitter who can help any Fantasy owner with his high batting average skills.
