Jon Jay Running Wild

Memphis Redbirds outfielder Jon Jay stole his fifth base of the year in Thursday’s game, in his club’s eighth contest of the season. Jay has swiped three bags in his last two games and is tied for second in the Triple-A Pacific Coast League with five steals behind Round Rock’s Jason Bourgeois, who has nine steals. Jay has yet to be caught in 2010.

In 2009, the 25-year-old was 20-for-28 in stolen base attempts, also with Memphis. Jay is 53-for-76 (70%) over his four year-plus professional career which began after he was selected in the second round of the 2006 draft from the University of Miami.
