Yasiel Puig leaves game with a bum left hip

Bad day for Yasiel Puig. First he loses the Final Vote to Freddie Freeman then he has Pedro Gomez dump all over him and, finally, he gets hurt:

 

Don Mattingly said after the game that he’s not too concerned about Puig and thinks he could be back in the lineup today. But if he isn’t, let’s look at the bright side: if he doesn’t have to play he’ll have more time to pick up girls sitting in the stands.

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.
