Jon Jay bids farewell to Cardinals, fans
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.
Cardinal Nation, what a run its been! Thank you St Louis for the past 6 years. To the St Louis Cardinals Organization- Thank you for giving a kid from Miami a chance to pursue his dreams. They say you are who you surround yourself with and so much of who I have become is because of the players, coaches, and people that I have had the pleasure to be around since 2006. I will be forever grateful for the friendships and relationships that I have developed over the years. Thank You to the FANS for all of your love and support. I'm looking forward to the next chapter of my life and career in San Diego
