The hits keep coming for this Mets organization.
Outfielder Jason Bay told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York on Wednesday that he is “highly unlikely” to return to the big leagues this season despite showing signs of progress from a concussion.
Bay was placed on the disabled list in late July after suffering a concussion while running head-first into an outfield wall. He’s no longer having headaches, but concussion victims are limited to only light workouts and he won’t be able to get his timing right before the end of the regular season.
“Given the lack of things that I’ve done at this point to get back on
there, I understand it’s probably highly unlikely, but it’s still a
goal,” Bay said Wednesday. “Every day that passes and you don’t take these giant leaps forward, you realize you’re that much further behind.”
The 31-year-old Bay had a disappointing .259/.347/.402 batting line, six home runs and 47 RBI in 95 games before going down. He is owed $48 million over the next three seasons.
