Jay (hip) is batting leadoff and starting in right field for Sunday's Cactus League finale against the Indians, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Jay has been hampered by a sore hip for over the last week, but his return to the field Sunday puts him on track for Opening Day. Manager Rick Renteria said Saturday he expected the veteran outfielder to be ready to go for Thursday's opener, which appears to be the case. The 34-year-old should provide a reliable outfield bench option for the White Sox.
Manager Rick Renteria expects Jay (hip) to be ready for Opening Day, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Jay has been out for over 10 days but has remained active. Barring setbacks, he should open the season as a bench outfielder.
Manager Rick Renteria said Jay (hip) will get some at-bats in a minor-league game Friday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Jay has been dealing with a sore hip recently. While the issue has kept him from playing the field, he's still been able to DH in minor-league games. There has been no indication that Jay is in jeopardy of missing Opening Day at this point, though it would be reassuring to see him return to game action in a full capacity before the exhibition slate draws to a close.
Jay (hip) isn't included in the White Sox lineup for Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Diamondbacks.
Jay has been battling a sore hip for the last few days and will get at least one more game off to heal up. The White Sox continue to view Jay as day to day and haven't indicated that he's in any jeopardy of missing Opening Day, though that could change if he fails to get in any more competitive at-bats before the exhibition schedule draws to a close.
Jay (hip) said he's still day-to-day, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Jay took some at-bats during a minor-league game Monday but is apparently still nursing a minor hip issue. The outfielder doesn't seem too worried about the injury. Assuming the veteran returns to action relatively soon, he should still have enough time to get ready for the start of the season.
