UPDATE: Despite the good news covered below, the Tigers have placed Carlos Guillen on the disabled list with a bruised knee and recalled Will Rhymes from Triple-A.

Carlos Guillen was out of last night’s lineup after injuring his knee turning a game-ending double play Monday against the Yankees, but Jason Beck of MLB.com reports that an MRI exam “revealed no structural or ligament damage.”
Guillen, who’s now officially listed as day-to-day with a sore knee, indicated that watching replays of the DP convinced him that Brett Gardner’s slide wasn’t quite as “clean” as he initially believed.
“I saw a replay when I got home and it looked different,” Guillen said. “He knows.”

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
