Center Field: Jon Jay and Bourjos

Jon Jay is looking good so far; he seems to have made positive changes in his swing. He's also maintaining a classy, team-first attitude and has had nothing but nice things to say about Peter Bourjos.

I've assumed all along that Bourjos (if healthy) will get much of the playing time; GM John Mozeliak really wanted to upgrade the CF defense, and that's why he made the deal to acquire Bourjos.

But Jay will have a say in this, and it's at least possible for the playing time to loosely fall along platoon lines, with Jay vs. RH pitching and Bourjos vs. LHP.
This is going to be a little more interesting that I anticipated.
