Jay, Schumaker out of lineup, but available
PITTSBURGH -- Jon Jay and Skip Schumaker -- both of whom recently exited games after running into the center-field wall -- remained out of the lineup, but available to play, on Saturday.

Schumaker, who left Friday's game in the first inning, appeared to be in better shape to play of the two. He was scheduled to take a full round of batting practice, though the team was forced to hit inside due to afternoon rain showers. He took his swings in the batting cages and said he felt no discomfort.

Jay also took some swings off soft toss, and he tested his right shoulder by playing catch several hours before game time. Jay had not done any baseball activities on Friday, one day after he jammed his shoulder trying to make a leaping catch. He expressed some doubt about being ready to play on Saturday, though the Cardinals will likely have him back in the starting lineup within days.

"I'd like to be cautious a little bit," manager Mike Matheny said. "It's going to be one of those cold nights. Neither of them are feeling great, though both [are getting] better."

Since both are available to pinch-hit, the Cardinals won't be playing with a depleted bench.

With the team down a pair of center fielders, Shane Robinson earned the start on Saturday. The start was the third of the year for Robinson, who entered the night 6-for-16.
