Jon Jay agrees to one-year deal with White Sox

Jon Jay has agreed to a one-year deal with the Chicago White Sox worth $4M.

Fantasy Impact

The White Sox have a very weak outfield which could lead to quite a bit of playing time for Jay. He slashed .268/.330/.347 with three homers last year. One other notable factor of this signing is that Jay happens to be close friends with Manny Machado, this signing could somewhat help them in those sweepstakes.

Jon Jay picks up two hits Wednesday

Jon Jay went 2-for-4 on Wednesday with a pair of singles.

Fantasy Impact

Jay has the ability to be a solid producer in fantasy baseball with his good bat-to-ball and on-base skills, but the knock on him since being traded to the Diamondbacks is that he doesn't get enough playing time to stay in the zone. He does have a .272 AVG on the season, but at this point in time he does not have enough fantasy value to justify keeping on a roster in mixed-league formats.

Jon Jay reaches three times Sunday

Jon Jay went 2-for-4 with two singles, one walk, and one RBI.

Fantasy Impact

Jay has not hit well this month with a .167/.250/.167 slash line in six September appearances, and because of the plethora of outfielders the Diamondbacks have he has been serving as a "fourth outfielder" for most of his time with the team. If he were to become an everyday starter he could carve his way into fantasy relevance with his decent OBP (.341 this year, .353 career) and run scoring opportunities, but, sadly, I don't see that happening this season.

Jon Jay picks up three hits Monday

Jon Jay finished Monday's loss going 3-for-4 with one triple and two singles from the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Impact

Jay showed once again that when he gets in the lineup, he can provide a solid AVG with his good bat-to-ball skills. The only issue with him is that he is losing out on playing time because of how crowded the outfield depth is, and that is really hurting his fantasy value.

Jon Jay picks up a pinch hit on Friday

Jon Jay did not start Friday's game, but picked up one hit in a pinch-hit at bat.

Fantasy Impact

Jay is able to put the bat on the ball well, and can provide a decent batting average if he is able to get into the starting lineup on a regular basis. He has not started a game in five days, and that lack of consistent playing time is the biggest reason why he has no fantasy value.
