Jason Bay‘s return was delayed one day by illness, but the Mets have now activated the left fielder from the disabled list after he missed the past six weeks with a fractured rib.
Bay went 2-for-9 (.222) with four strikeouts on a brief minor-league rehab assignment, but manager Terry Collins already said last week that he’ll resume playing every day once healthy. Prior to the injury Bay hit .240 with three homers and a .776 OPS in 15 games, which is similar to the .251 with a .723 OPS he posted during his first two seasons in New York.
Bay, who’s in the second season of a four-year, $66 million contract, will get $16 million this year, $16 million next year, and $17 million option or $3 million buyout for 2014.
