Insight: Cueto's credentials haven't fazed Jay. He's gone 10-for-21 (.476) with a double and three homers against the right-hander. He's a nice low-cost outfield option Wednesday.

Description: Cardinals center fielder Jon Jay led the way with three hits Saturday in a win against Cincinnati.
Insight: It's only his third three-hit game of the season. Jay is hitting .292 for the season but it's hard to own him in fantasy while he's stuck in a timeshare with Peter Bourjos (.227, 1 HR, 7 RBI) in center field.

Description: St. Louis center fielder Jon Jay is hitting over .400 in his career against Reds starter Mat Latos.
Insight: That's convenient because Latos is the pitcher he'll be facing today. Jay (.269, 7 HR, 59 RBI in 132 games) probably isn't owned in many fantasy leagues but if you do have him, now would be the time to start him.
