Cardinals get good news on Jon Jay’s shoulder injury

3 Comments

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.

Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports that San Diego Padres outfielder Wil Myers fainted at Kirby Yates‘ charity event last night.

Myers was admitted to a local hospital and underwent a series of tests, but all came back normal and he feels fine today. The team believes it may have been a matter of Myers being dehydrated and that he should available to play in tomorrow night’s game against the Dodgers.
