Mets welcome back Jason Bay from concussion

Jason Bay is back from the disabled list, returning to the Mets’ active roster after missing the past month with a concussion.

Bay went 3-for-10 with three walks while rehabbing at Triple-A and, more importantly considering his history, hasn’t experienced any post-concussion symptoms.

Bay got off to a decent start this season, but then missed six weeks with a fractured rib and was in the midst of a 2-for-25 slump upon returning when he suffered the concussion. He figures to play regularly versus left-handed pitching, but it remains to be seen if manager Terry Collins will also continue giving him frequent starts versus right-handers.

Tonight he’s playing left field and batting fifth against left-hander Ross Detwiler and the Nationals.

    “Mets welcome back Jason Bay from concussion”
    I’m fairly certain that they do not….

      The Mets do. The Mets FANS weren’t in a huge hurry to get him back. But since it’s evident he doesn’t know where the wall IS, much less how not to run into it, he’ll be knocking himself out again in no time.

      …I feel a little bit bad harshing on the dude, he does try hard and he’s obviously embarrassed by how he’s underperformed, but if he’s healthy, Collins has to pretend that things MIGHT improve, and run him out there 6 days a week and create (another) auto-out in the middle of the order and it’s just exhausting. At least Duda’s “defense” provides a little levity. Watching the pride of Thunder Bay flail at C-plus sliders some more…I’m over it.
