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.
