St. Louis Cardinals center fielder Jon Jay is traveling to the team's spring training complex on Sunday with a scheduled batting practice for Monday, as Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. If the live batting practice goes well, Jay will likely be assigned to one of the team's minor league affiliates for rehab soon.
