Jason Bay will miss Friday’s game against the Braves and probably most of 2012 because of a jammed right shoulder, the Mets announced.

Well, the Mets didn’t actually announce that Bay would miss most of 2012.  That’s just an easy assumption since he is, in fact, a Met.  Technically, the team is saying he’s day-to-day.

With Scott Hairston landing on the disabled list, the Mets have Jason Pridie playing left field tonight.  Pridie, as you may remember, hit a homer while filling in for Angel Pagan back in May.  He’s currently hitting .224/.300/.335 in 170 at-bats.

Bay, as you may remember, hit a homer while playing for the Red Sox in 2009.  He is hitting .233/.318/.341 in 369 at-bats this season.
