Jason Bay probably won’t be back this weekend

Jason Bay was hoping to return from the 15-day disabled list when eligible Saturday, but GM Sandy Alderson said Tuesday that it probably won’t happen.

Bay is still experiencing soreness around his strained left intercostal muscle and has yet to try swinging a bat.

“The doctors thought he might be ready when his days on the DL expired,” Alderson said. “But that looks unlikely. It’s just hard to predict.”

Bay isn’t expected to go on a minor league rehab assignment unless the injury sidelines him well beyond the weekend.  The Mets, however, would like to get him into one or two extended spring training games before he returns.

    Jason Bay will never play Baseball again or until the Mets trade him.

    The funny thing about the Mets is they will not have any money to sign Reyes.

    At this rate, the only thing they’ll have money for is to pay their lawyers. Anyone else know that feeling?
