Jason Bay left the second game of yesterday’s doubleheader after injuring his ribs attempting a diving catch and today the Mets put him on the disabled list with a non-displaced fracture.
No timetable yet for his return, but at the very least a non-displaced fracture is better than a displaced fracture and Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that surgery likely won’t be necessary.
Bay has been such a huge disappointment since signing a four-year, $66 million deal with the Mets two offseasons ago that losing him to the DL may not seem like much of a loss at all, but he’s actually tied for the team lead with three homers and has posted a solid .776 OPS in 15 games.
