The Angels signed OF Jon Jay to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Jay struggled mightily in 2020, batting .160 with a .451 OPS in 50 games. He'll compete for a reserve outfielder role this spring.
Jon Jay went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Rockies.
Jay knocked his first home run of the season Tuesday night in a losing effort. Jay has only appeared in 11 games, so his playing time is very inconsistent.
Jon Jay has officially made the D-backs roster according to the team.
Jay signed a minor league deal back in February and was no guarantee to make the roster. He was a liability last year with a horrid .267/.311/.315 triple slash line across 182 plate appearances for the Chicago White Sox. With Starling Marte, David Peralta, and Kole Calhoun expected to start in the OF for Arizona, Jay is firmly off the fantasy radar.
Jon Jay has agreed to a one-year deal with the Chicago White Sox worth $4M.
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 went 2-for-4 on Wednesday with a pair of singles.
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.
