Jon Jay Cools

HOUSTON -- It's not exactly a June swoon, but Jon Jay has experienced an offensive dropoff this month going into his start in right field tonight.
Jay, who replaced injured Allen Craig on Tuesday night, has five singles and no RBIs in 24 June at-bats. In May, he batted .397 with four homers and 14 RBIs in 78 at-bats.

Craig is unable to run today because of the deep bruise and gash on his right knee; he suffered the injury when he crashed into a metal fence in foul territory at Minute Maid Park on Tuesday night.

Craig said today he is in "de-swelling mode" and more concerned about the bruise than the stitches he received. His leg is sore, but the team determined that X-rays would not be needed. Craig's status beyond today has not been determined.
