ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- The St. Louis Cardinals sent veteran outfielder Jon Jay to the San Diego Padres Tuesday in exchange for infielder Jedd Gyorko, in an effort to unclog the team’s options in the outfield and to add production to the infield bench.

Tuesday night, Jay took to Instagram to thank the Cardinals and fans.
