Padres Interested In Re-Signing John Jay

Aug 27, 2016 2:09 PM

The San Diego Padres have interest in re-signing John Jay this offseason.

"It feels great," Jay, asked his reaction, said Friday. "I love San Diego, I love what's going on, I love where the team's headed. Obviously, with free agency, you wait so long to get to this point as a player, you want to see what's out there. But at the same time, I feel very comfortable here. I do like it a lot here, so this is definitely something my wife and I will discuss when we're making those decisions."

"He's a tremendous leader, and he's still a great player," Padres manager Andy Green said. "I'm hopeful he wants to be back, and I'm hopeful we come to some sort of terms where he comes back, but that's an offseason discussion at this point in time. I think all parties involved are pretty open to it."

Jay performed effectively when he was on the field this season. At the time of his injury, he was leading the team in batting average and the National League in doubles.
