Fantasy Fare: Jedd-hot Gyorko torches Pods

On Thursday night at Busch Stadium, Cardinals leadoff hitter Jedd Gyorko stepped in against his former teammate, Padres’ Andrew Cashner, and struck out on seven pitches. It was the first time in 22 tries this season that Padres pitching had fanned Gyorko since trading him for Jon Jay in December.

Jon Jay’s arm is broken after all

The Padres declared Jon Jay’s x-ray results negative after initial tests 10 days ago. Just so we’re clear, “negative” meaning they saw no break in his arm. Today after a CT scan it was determined that his arm was broken. Let me set the scene, it all happened on the night of June 19th, under a full moon, when Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez recklessly threw an 89 mph fastball at Jay’s right forearm. I swear I heard a snap, on my radio when it happened but it could have just been Ted Leitner chewing on Corn Nuts or a static pop on the airwaves. In any case the arm was broken...
