Jason Bay has been activated from the disabled list after going 6-for-12 with two homers during a brief minor-league rehab assignment at high Single-A and he’ll bat fifth in the Mets’ lineup tonight against the Astros.

Bay hasn’t played since suffering a concussion on July 25 of last year, but his season-opening DL stint was for a ribcage injury.

Willie Harris and Scott Hairston formed a left field platoon in place of Bay, hitting just .227 with one homer and a .684 OPS in 18 games.

Bay batted .259 with six homers in 95 games prior to the concussion last year, posting a .749 OPS that was 147 points below his career mark coming into the first season of a four-year, $66 million deal.

    As a Mets fan I’d be happier if the news was Tom Seaver was coming out of retirement
