Last night, Jason Bay was forced to leave the game against the Cincinnati Reds after hitting his head against the left-field wall on Jay Bruce’s second-inning inside-the-park home run.
The Mets are saying that Bay likely suffered another concussion and expect to place him on the disabled list before today’s game. Infielder Justin Turner is expected to be activated before the game and is already back in Flushing after a two game rehab stint in Buffalo.
As most of you may recall, Bay missed the final two months of 2010 after suffering a concussion, and has already missed more than two-thirds of the games played this season because of a fractured rib. He was only activated from the DL for that rib cage injury a week ago.
“I felt terrible for Jason,” Terry Collins said. “He always plays the game one way — all out. He never backed off anything. He didn’t back off the wall. He didn’t back off a broken rib. He still dove. He still plays the game the only way he knows how.”
