Breaking News: Jason Bay Placed On DL, Mets Call Up Zach Lutz

An article by posted on April 24, 2012

The New York Mets today announced the team placed outfielder Jason Bay on the 15-Day Disabled List with a nondisplaced fracture of a rib on the left side and recalled infielder Zach Lutz from Buffalo (AAA) of the International League. 

Bay, 33, is hitting .240 (12-50) with three home runs and five RBI in 15 games this season.  He underwent a MRI at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan this morning that revealed the injury.

Lutz, 25, hit .333 (21-63) with three home runs and 10 RBI in 19 games for the Bisons. The 6-1, 222-pound native of Reading, PA, was the Mets’ fifth-round pick in the 2007 First-Year Player Draft.

A fractured rib?

Knowing Bay’s history he’ll be out for three months at least. He’s a slow healer.

Get back soon Jason, we need your potent bat in the middle of our lineup…
