Jon Jay (forearm) said Monday that he hopes to return to action in a "couple" of weeks.
Jay suffered a broken right forearm when he was hit by a pitch back on June 19 and is still wearing a cast. If all goes well from here, he could return to action in the early part of August. He could be a candidate for a waiver trade if he can prove his health and effectiveness. Jul 18 - 6:46 PM

Jon Jay - OF - Padres

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

Brutal news for Jay, who was hit in the right wrist/forearm area with a pitch on June 19. According to Marty Caswell of 1090 Sports Radio in San Diego, Padres general manager A.J. 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.

Jon Jay (wrist, forearm) remains out of the Padres' lineup Saturday against the Reds.

Jay hasn't played since he was hit in the wrist area with a pitch last Sunday and a stint on the disabled list remains a possibility. Travis Jankowski will start in center field again and bat leadoff Saturday.

Jon Jay - OF - Padres

Jon Jay (wrist, forearm) is out of the Padres' lineup again Friday versus the Reds.

Jay was hit by a pitch last Sunday and is still dealing with some swelling. He will see a hand specialist upon returning to San Diego next week and the Padres haven't ruled out a potential stint on the disabled list.

Jon Jay (forearm) is out again Thursday.

Jay hasn't appeared in a game for the Padres since suffering a bruised right forearm last Sunday. He's still considered day-to-day. Travis Jankowski will bat leadoff and start in center field Thursday versus the Reds.

Jon Jay - OF - Padres

Jon Jay is out of the Padres' lineup Tuesday after bruising his right forearm Sunday.

He'll be reevaluated on Wednesday, per Padres manager Andy Green. Jay has been a nice little surprise for San Diego this season, slashing .296/.345/.407 with an NL-leading 24 doubles in 68 games. He'll make for a nice trade chip next month if he can stay healthy.

Jon Jay - OF - Padres

Jon Jay finished 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles Friday against the Nationals.

Jay is first in the NL and third in the majors with 24 doubles. He might be a nice little trade piece for the Padres next month, especially since there never seem to be enough leadoff hitters to go around.

Jon Jay - OF - Padres

Jon Jay went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

Jay stroked a solo home run against Giants starter Jeff Samardzija in the sixth inning. It would be one of just two runs the Padres managed to scratch out on the evening. With a .267/.330/.372 triple-slash over 172 at-bats, the 31-year-old outfielder can be safely ignored for fantasy purposes.

Jon Jay (shoulder) doubled and singled in his return to the lineup Thursday.

Jay didn't start a game for nearly a week due to a sore shoulder. It's not expected to be a long-term issue for him.

Jon Jay - OF - Padres

Padres manager Andy Green said he expects Jon Jay (shoulder) to return to the lineup Thursday.

Jay has been sidelined since last Friday because of a jammed shoulder, though he did make an appearance as a pinch-hitter on Wednesday night. He grounded out to second base in the bottom of the eighth inning, but it still served as a positive sign. Jay, the Padres' primary center fielder, is slashing .278/.338/.368 in 38 games this season.

Jon Jay - OF - Padres

Jon Jay is day-to-day with a sore shoulder.

Jay jammed the shoulder on Friday night and hasn't felt much progress, but the Padres are hoping this doesn't have to be a disabled list situation. Travis Jankowski started in center field and hit leadoff in the Padres' final two games in Milwaukee. Wil Myers will get the nod at leadoff in Tuesday night's series opener against the Giants and Madison Bumgarner.

Jon Jay - OF - Padres

Jon Jay went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Saturday's loss to the Mets.

Jay whacked his three-run shot off Mets starter Bartolo Colon in the third inning. The tater was his first of the season. The 31-year-old outfielder is slashing just .276/.331/.366 over 123 at-bats. For fantasy purposes, he isn't worth owning.

Jon Jay - OF - Padres

Jon Jay went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI against the Mets on Friday.

Jay can be a perfectly fine leadoff hitter for the Padres all year and still not make any sort of impact in fantasy leagues. Right now, he's sporting a .336 OBP, but he has no homers and one steal in 119 at-bats. He's just not capable of offering much in those categories, and he'll be useless in RBI, too.

Jon Jay - OF - Padres

Jon Jay is not in the Padres' lineup Sunday.

Jay is getting a day off with the Diamondbacks throwing lefty Patrick Corbin. Jabari Blash is in left field in his place. Derek Norris is also receiving some rest, as Christian Bethancourt is catching.
