Jay went 4-for-4 with two doubles in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Royals.
All those hits and no RBI or runs scored. Jay becomes the first White Sox player to collect four hits without an RBI or run since Alex Avila did it against the Red Sox on June 23, 2016. Jay has hit safely in 11 of 14 games (.353, 18-for-51) since being activated off the injured list, but has not driven in a run over the last eight contests.
Jay went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Cubs.
Jay has hit regularly since returning from a groin injury that cost him the first 11 weeks of the season, but per his track record, there hasn't been much power. He's reached base safely via a hit in seven of 10 games with eight of his 10 hits being singles.
Jay is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Tigers.
Manager Rick Renteria will extend Jay some rest after the veteran played both ends of Wednesday's doubleheader. After missing the first three months of the season with a hip injury, Jay has immediately claimed a full-time role. He'll take a seat after starting in each of his first eight games back from the injured list and batting 8-for-27 with five RBI and three runs.
Jay went 1-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Twins.
Jay delivered a run for the fifth straight game and has gone 4-for-5 with runners in scoring position since being activated. He's unlikely to sustain that level of success, but if he continues to bat fifth in the order -- Sunday was his second straight day there -- he'll see RBI opportunities.
Jay went 0-for-2 with a walk in Monday's 6-5 loss to the Red Sox.
Jay made his season debut after missing three months with a strained right hip and groin injury that occurred during spring training. He had 65 plate appearances while on minor-league rehab, but he'll need time to adjust to pitching at the major-league level. Jay started in right field and batted sixth.
