NEW YORK (AP) – The Mets have put outfielder Jason Bay on the 15-day disabled list with a concussion.
Today’s move was made retroactive to July 26, the day after the end of a series at Dodger Stadium in which Bay was injured.
Bay got hurt Friday night when he crashed into the bullpen gate while catching Jamey Carroll’s drive. Bay then played Saturday and Sunday, going 2 for 9 with four strikeouts.
New York said Bay had been bothered by headaches. To fill his roster spot, the Mets recalled outfielder Jesus Feliciano from Triple-A Buffalo of the International League.
The move should give Jeff Francoeur all the playing time he needs, at least for the next two weeks, and keep him off the trading block.
Hopefully, the Mets medical staff will know what to do with this concussion as they’ve had plenty of experience dealing with it over the past few years.
