That's not exactly true -- he's given up no earned runs in 5 of his last 7 (no runs at all in 4 of his 7). Still not sure if that's a meaningful accomplishment for a reliever. Jay hasn't pitched particularly well over that time:
7 G, 13.1 IP, 16 H, 5 R, 2 ER, 6 BB, 16 K, 2 HBP
At least 2 baserunners in every appearance, .745 opponent OPS during this stretch, in a league with a .670 overall for the season
Age 25, repeating AA... not to pick on Jay, but there's nothing to see here so far.
That said, effective relievers can sometimes ascend rapidly, seemingly out of nowhere, so I'm sure Jay will continue getting chances with his pedigree. Unless someone takes him in Rule 5, he's controlled by the Twins through 2021, even without a 40-man roster spot.
I may have used the wrong word.Would have been better had I said "not as bad" or "better".What caught my eye was that he had several games that weren't ugly.
