Jay is recovering from a wrist injury which has limited him during the beginning of spring training. Jay said he's progressing enough to be ready by the time the regular season is set to start.

"The timeline is to be ready April 5," Jay said. "I'm trying to be smart about it. I feel good with where I am now and how much time is left in camp."

The Cardinals open with the Cubs on opening day.

Jay had wrist surgery last October after dealing with pain during the 2014 season. Despite the injury, Jay was still able to hit .303 with 46 RBI in 140 games.
