Jason Bay Placed On DL, Reflecting On His Signing
The Mets officially placed outfielder Jason Bay on the disabled list on Friday.
Bay continues to suffer with continued headaches, a week after he hit the outfield wall at Dodger Stadium while making a catch.
Minor league outfielder Jesus Feliciano was promoted from Triple-A Buffalo to take his place and will be available tonight against the D’Backs.
Also, David Wright will be back in the cleanup spot after getting the game off yesterday.
It’s starting to feel a lot last season lately, not in terms of overwhelming injuries, but you get the sense that the Mets have gone as far as they’re gonna go, and it’s all downhill from here.
I hope I’m wrong.
Bay hits the DL with an unimpressive .259 batting average, six home runs and 47 RBI. At the time the Mets decided to go after Bay, they said he would be a better hitter at Citi Field than Matt Holliday.
Holliday is one year younger, and is batting .302 with a .526 slugging percentage and a .904 OPS, 150 points higher than Bay. He also has hit 19 homeruns, including one at Citi Field, and driven in 60 runners. Holliday has struck out 59 times, compared to 91 for Bay.
Safe to say the Mets guessed wrong.
