I think Jon Jay has exceeded many peoples' expectations as a defender, including me, as he has become a reliable CF with decent (but certainly non-elite) range and a noodle arm.
But calling him a "brilliant" defender?
Brooks Robinson was a brilliant defender.
I'd call Jay slightly above average as a CF.
