Jay is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Jay will retreat to the bench for Game 5 of the NLCS as the club goes up against left-hander Clayton Kershaw. In his place, Kyle Schwarber earns the nod in left while Albert Almora will start in center and bat atop the order. Jay will likely enter the game as a defensive substitute or pinch hitter in the latter stages of the contest.

Jay is not in the lineup against the Nationals on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Jay will remain on the bench for Game 2 of the NLDS with southpaw Gio Gonzalez on the mound for Washington. In his place, Ian Happ will draw a start in left while Albert Almora gets the nod in center. During Friday's victory, Jay was used as a pinch hitter, going 1-for-1 with a double and a run, and will likely be deployed in that capacity yet again Saturday.

Jay is not in the lineup against the Nationals for Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Jay will head to the bench for the opening game of the series as Kyle Schwarber draws the start in left. He will be available off the bench and is likely going to enter the fray at some point if the game is close. Looking ahead, with left-hander Gio Gonzalez confirmed as Saturday's starter, Jay may be left out of the starting nine once again.

Jay is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Jay raised his batting average 10 points to .293 over the last six games, but manager Joe Maddon decided he was due a day off after five straight starts, so he will open on the bench Tuesday. Ian Happ will take Jay's place in center field, and Ben Zobrist will assume his spot atop the order.

Jay went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Jay has now scored two runs in three of his last four games. He's primarily been batting leadoff for the Cubs, and he's playing most days as he's seemed to earn the trust of manager Joe Maddon. It doesn't hurt that Jay is batting .295 with a .378 on-base percentage, which makes him a threat to score plenty of more runs atop a strong Cubs lineup before the regular season is over.

Jay went 2-for-3 with an RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Jay batted ninth in this one, but he's batted leadoff for the Cubs often this season. With a .286 average and .372 on-base percentage, the 32-year-old outfielder has been a good tablesetter for the Cubs when he's been atop the lineup.
