2019 Fantasy Outlook
Jay rattled off a .307/.363/.374 line in 59 games to start 2018 with the Royals, who went on to ship him to the injury-plagued Diamondbacks in June. Jay dipped to .235/.304/.325 across his final 84 games with Arizona, losing reps as his performance stabilized and other outfielders returned. The veteran maintained a useful contact rate throughout the season (82.2%), but his BABIP dipped by 49 points while he barreled just 1.8% of his batted balls. His connections are offering meager rewards, and he hasn't topped three homers in any of his past five seasons, though at least he continues to show a pulse against right-handed pitching. The 34-year-old landed with the White Sox on a one-year, $4 million deal in free agency and will likely take over as the primary center fielder -- perhaps his final opportunity as a regular starter in the major leagues.
