Jon Jay (forearm) has not been cleared for hitting.

Jay underwent a CT scan on Tuesday and met with team doctors, and the decision was made to continue resting.

He had been aiming to return before the end of August.

Padres manager Andy Green indicated Thursday that Jon Jay (forearm) will be used as a fourth outfielder when he returns from the disabled list.

The veteran outfielder has hit .296/.345/.407 this season, but he's slated for free agency this winter and the Padres want to get a look at their younger players. Green added that Jay, who is on track to resume baseball activities this weekend, should still get "four or five starts a week" as he provides rest for Alex Dickerson, Travis Jankowski and Jabari Blash.

Jon Jay has drawn considerable trade interest, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

Aside from Wil Myers, no one is off-limits for the rebuilding Padres. Jay carries an impressive .296 average this year, though he's still recovering from a broken arm. As Rosenthal notes, players on the disabled list can be traded as long as they have the consent of the acquiring team. Jay hasn't begun a rehab assignment yet but he's hoping to be back in early August.

Jon Jay - OF - Padres

Jon Jay (forearm) said Monday that he hopes to return to action in a "couple" of weeks.

Jon Jay - OF - Padres

Padres placed OF Jon Jay on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 20, with a broken right forearm.

Preller said that the outfielder is slated to be re-evaluated in three weeks. The 31-year-old was batting .296/.345/.407 through 68 games this season, so he was shaping up to be a nice trade chip for San Diego prior to the injury.

Jay hasn't played since being hit on the right wrist with a pitch a week ago. Travis Jankowski is again in center field and the leadoff spot.
