The Arizona Diamondbacks signed outfielder Jon Jay and pitcher Edwin Jackson to minor league deals on Monday. Jay will make $1.5 million if he's on the major league roster with another $1.75 million in incentives, according to USA TODAY's Bob Nightengale. The 34-year-old (35 in March) played in just 47 games for the White Sox last year due to injuries, and he hit a weak .267/.311/.315 with no homers and nine RBI. Jay will compete for a reserve outfield spot and probably won't have any fantasy value beyond deep NL-only leagues if he makes the team out of spring training. Jackson, 36, had a nightmarish 9.58 ERA and 2.03 WHIP in 13 starts and five relief outings for the Blue Jays and Tigers last season. At best, he might be looking at a long-relief role for the Snakes.
The Chicago White Sox have placed outfielder Jon Jay (hip) on the 10-day injured list with a right hip strain. Jay got a late start to the season with a groin injury and now can add a hip strain to his injury plagued season. If this is the last that we see of Jay in 2019, the outfielder will have hit .267 with nine RBI over 165 plate appearances. Outfielder Ryan Cordell has been promoted to replace Jay and can be avoided in all formats for now.
Chicago White Sox outfielder Jon Jay (groin) has been activated from the 60-day injured list. Jay was signed this offseason and has missed the entire season thus far with a groin injury. Jay will make his debut on Monday and bat sixth. Jay is in a good spot in the order being sandwiched between two of the White Sox best hitters, Eloy Jimenez and Yoan Moncada. Despite that, Jay doesnt offer much in any category to be worth rostering at this time.
