Cardinals' Matheny on Jon Jay: 'He's still not where he wants to be'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Cardinals outfielder Jon Jay could be placed on the disabled list to allow his thumb and wrist to properly heal and to allow the team to add a healthy outfielder to the roster after an injury to Matt Holliday Wednesday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

"He’s still not where he wants to be," Matheny said of Jay. "We’re going to be very guarded. Part of it is the thumb. And there’s part wrist in there. That wrist is something we hope we had in the past with the surgery, but it takes times to get all the range of motion back. Strength is still an issue. Try to get him some rest. That will help."

Jay hasn't seen any action at the plate since Saturday due to the injury.

Hot-hitting Cardinals LF Matt Holliday gets breather on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/7/2015) Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday was given the day off and held out of Thursday's starting lineup against the Cubs. Holliday had started all but one of the team's game so far in 2015. While he has only hit one home run this year, he has reached base safely via a hit or a walk in every game he's played in. He's also sporting a very impressive .344 batting average on the season, which leads the team and is fourth in the National League.

Jon Jay moved over to left field on Thursday, while Peter Bourjos was in center field, batting eighth for manager Mike Matheny.

The team is playing their 17th straight game without a break on Thursday, and their next schedule off-day isn't until May 11. So Matheny thought it best to give his starting left fielder a breather. 

"That's emotionally draining, physically draining," Matheny said, per FoxSports.com. "Some of these other guys have been stepping up big and got to keep them sharp."

Wong has started 24 of the team's 26 games at second base but will sit for the second time in a four-game span.

The Cardinals are favorites (-119) at home against the Cubs Wednesday, per VegasInsider.com.
