As expected, the Mets have placed Jason Bay on the disabled list after the outfielder experienced headaches and other post-concussion symptoms following his face-first collision with the left field wall at Dodger Stadium last week.
Bay was able to play in the next two games, but then had headaches on the team flight out of Los Angeles and hasn’t played since July 25. Because the move is backdated he’ll be eligible to return in 10 days, but as the Twins are learning with Justin Morneau predicting how long concussion symptoms will linger is nearly impossible.
Bay’s uncertain status presumably means the Mets won’t be trading Jeff Francoeur, although they could still potentially deal him for another outfielder. For now Jesus Feliciano will take Bay’s place on the 25-man roster.
