Cardinals Injury Update: Jon Jay dealing with sore wrist

By on 8/02/2014 07:30:00 AM

The St. Louis Cardinals entered a weekend series against the first-place Milwaukee Brewers with a record of 57-50, two game behind the Brewers in the National League Central. At 29th in the Major Leagues in runs scored, the Cardinals will have to rely on their pitching to try and overtake the Brewers in the division. They are also playing without outfielder Jon Jay, who is dealing with a sore wrist.

Derrick Goold, who covers the Cardinals for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, tweeted the following on Jay.
The Cardinals are deep in the outfield with Matt Holliday, Allen Craig, rookie Oscar Taveras and Peter Bourjos.  The Cardinals can take their time with Jay, who is listed as day-to-day, to make sure his wrist is healed before reinserting him in the lineup.

Jay, in his fifth Major League season, is batting .289 with a home run and 24 RBI in 92 games this season.  In 630 career games, Jay has a batting average of .292 with 26 home runs, 195 RBI and 43 stolen bases.
