Arizona announced Wednesday, it has acquired outfielder Jon Jay from the Royals for two minor-league pitchers.

The battle for the other outside job is between Byron Maxwell, Justin Coleman and Neiko Thorpe. Maxwell has experience and played well last season, but he’s 30. Coleman has good all-around attributes, but it’s hard to take him out of the nickel role he aced last season. Thorpe, who started two games for the Raiders in 2015, has worked himself into the mix after being a core special teamer.

The money is on Maxwell, but look for Thorpe to at least entrench himself as the dime back over scheme-based addition Dontae Johnson, a former 49er. Coleman was a priority re-sign, but he is too effective in the slot to move. The door is also open for big rookie Tre Flowers to get a role soon should he develop quickly.

In the first inning of Miami’s matchup with the Padres Saturday, Straily took a 110-mph line drive off the bat of Eric Hosmer to his body.

Phillies: Jake Arrieta and Vince Velasquez. Arrieta extended his streak of seasons with a home run to four this year, and Velasquez has two multihit games this season.

Pirates: Joe Musgrove. He should get the nod for his baserunning alone. He really gets the spot because Bucs pitchers are batting.094 outside of his 2-for-7 line.

Cardinals: Carlos Martnez. As it also has on the mound, the baton has passed from Adam Wainwright to Martinez (.222, one home run) in the box.

Padres: Tyson Ross. Ross, one of the more athletic pitchers in Aaron Rodgers Jersey baseball, had consecutive seasons of double-digit hits during his first Padres stint.

Giants: Madison Bumgarner. Mad Bum has the power (17 home runs in 534 career plate appearances) to serve as a legit bench bat.
