Jay (wrist) could be placed on the disabled list, Jennifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Jay missed batting practice Wednesday and has been battling wrist discomfort for the majority of the season, saying, "It's just been something that I've had to deal with all year. I'm not feeling good." Jay has missed two consecutive games and has a .185 batting average over his past 65 at-bats.

Jay is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the White Sox.

Wednesday's absence marks Jay's second in a row, and while the White Sox have trotted out two straight lefties, Jay also sat Saturday against a right-hander. He's posted a dismal .223/.311/.265 batting line in 57 games to this point, and it seems he will continue splitting time in center with Peter Bourjos.

Jay is out of the lineup Saturday against the Cubs.

Jay will take what looks to be a scheduled day off Saturday, with Peter Bourjos receiving the start in center field in his place. Jay has struggled at the dish in June, batting just .172/.258/.259 in 22 games, which could lead to more days off in the future if he doesn't turn things around.

Jay is out of the lineup against the Phillies Saturday.

Jay finds himself out of the lineup after two straight games manning center field for the Cards. He will be replaced by Peter Bourjos, batting eighth in the lineup, who owns a lifetime .474 batting average against Phillies starter Aaron Harang (19 AB). Jay has been caught in a timeshare with Bourjos recently, and that figures to continue until performance dictates otherwise.

Jay is out of the Cardinals' lineup Wednesday.

Jay gets a good portion of the starts in center field for St. Louis, but he will make way for Peter Bourjos on Wednesday with lefty Tommy Milone on the mound for the Twins. Considering Jay is slashing just .228/.314/.279, the Cardinals could opt to start giving Bourjos more stars in center in an effort to get the optimal defensive lineup in play. However, manager Mike Matheny has shown extreme loyalty to struggling veterans before, and Jay probably fits that bill.

Jay is out of the lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

Jay will ride the pine for a second straight game with another tough lefty (Clayton Kershaw) toeing the rubber for the opposition. Since returning from the DL late last month, Jay has gone 3-for-17 without an extra-base hit and just one run scored. Peter Bourjos will man center field and lead off Saturday.

Jay is out of the lineup Sunday against the Dodgers.

Jay is returning to a crowded outfield situation, as both Randal Grichuk and Peter Bourjos are expected to press him for regular playing time. The decision was made easier for manager Mike Matheny on Sunday, however, as the left-handed bat of Jay will rest with southpaw Brett Anderson on the hill for the Dodgers.

Jay is starting in center field an hitting seventh Saturday against the Dodgers.

Jay was activated from the disabled list prior to Friday's game in which he saw a pinch-hit appearance. Given how well Randal Grichuk has played and how invested the Cardinals are in Jason Heyward this season it would seem likely that Grichuk starts in center field most days as long as he continues to swing a hot bat.

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.
