Jay (wrist) was activated from the disabled list Friday.

Jay is ready to resume playing for the big club after completing a three-game rehab stint with Low-A Peoria. While Jay is back on the Cardinals' roster, he will not be in the lineup Friday night, and he figures to be challenged for playing time by Peter Bourjos and Randal Grichuk, who both played well in his absence.

Jay (wrist) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Peoria on Tuesday, MLB.com reports.

Jay took batting practice on the field with his teammates Monday, and afterward GM John Mozeliak announced the start date and location for the outfielder's rehab assignment. The club wants Jay to play two or three games in the minors to work on his timing, but if all goes well, he will be activated Friday. It's uncertain, however, what role Jay will take on upon his return, as Randal Grichuk and Peter Bourjos have fared reasonably well in his absence and Jay went 25-for-101 with two extra-base hits (both doubles) before hitting the DL.

Jay (wrist) will likely be sent on a rehab assignment to work on his timing, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Jay is first eligible to return from the disabled list Tuesday, but manager Mike Matheny would like to see him get a few more swings in before rejoining the big league club. This would set up the regular center fielder for a return this weekend, provided the club likes what they see in his rehab outings. Peter Bourjos and Randal Grichuk will continue to pick up the reps he leaves behind in the meantime.

Jay (wrist) has taken batting practice the last two days and may be able to return from the disabled list when first eligible on Tuesday.

Jay may be eased back into the lineup as Peter Borjous and Randal Grichuk have both played well this season when given a chance. He may not be an everyday player for the Cardinals going forward this season.

Jay (wrist) has been placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to May 10.

Jay was not in the starting lineup for the fourth straight game Thursday, allowing the team to backdate the stint. While he's on the shelf, look for Peter Boujos to get a short-term bump in utility, especially if he continues to man the leadoff spot. The Cardinals recalled Xavier Scruggs from Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding move.

Jay (wrist) remains out of the lineup Thursday against the Indians.

Jay will now miss his fourth straight game as a result of a sprained left wrist. Although it wasn't originally considered serious, the disabled list does remain a possibility, according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Peter Bourjos will take over in center and bat atop the order Thursday afternoon.

Jay (wrist) is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Indians.

Considered day-to-day, Jay may rejoin the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Indians. His injury doesn't seem to be too serious, as he was used as a pinch runner in Sunday's game against the Pirates.

Jay (wrist) is considered a game-time decision for Tuesday's game, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Jay was held out of the lineup with what was thought to be a sprained left thumb, but the team is now listing him as day-to-day with a sprained left wrist. It doesn't look to be anything serious, but he could miss another game or two in the short-term if his condition doesn't improve by Tuesday afternoon.

Jay is nursing a bruised left thumb, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Derrick Goold reports.

It's not clear when Jay might have suffered the injury, but he experienced enough soreness with the thumb that he needed to be switched out late in Saturday's game against the Pirates. Peter Bourjos started for him in center field Sunday and could see further run in the lineup if Jay's condition fails to improve within the next day or two.
