Cardinals get good news on Jon Jay’s shoulder injury

Jon Jay

Jon Jay left the Cardinals in Pittsburgh and returned to St. Louis to have his injured right shoulder examined yesterday and an MRI exam revealed no structural damage.

FOX Sports Midwest reports that Jay will avoid the disabled list and rejoin the team in Chicago for their series against the Cubs, which is quite a change from the initial worries when he ran into the outfield fence last Thursday.

Jay was off to a tremendous start, hitting .349 with two homers, and 27-year-old career minor leaguer Shane Robinson has played back-to-back games in center field in his absence.

    Glad to hear it, we don’t want anymore injuries right now. Although I do feel bad for Robinson, he’ll be going back to the bench, even though he’s a good player.

    Glad Jay’s shoulder isn’t any more serious than a sprain.

    Good News, well unless you Shane Robinson. Once the Cards get back to full strength, and they make a determination on Rule 5 player Erik Komatsu, St. Louis ought to consider moving Robinson. He could be playing on some rosters, would be an ideal candidate for 4th outfielder, or platoon candidate somewhere. But with Adron Chambers at AAA, with post-season experience, highly touted Oscar Taveras, not far away, and Schumaker, Jay, Craig, and the aforementioned Komatsu, not to mention Beltran, all St. Louis outfield alternatives, Robinson just does not appear to have a future with the Cards. Do the right thing Cards management, and set him free.
