Mets outfielder Jason Bay was out of the lineup Tuesday with mild concussion symptoms stemming from a collision with the outfield wall last Friday in Los Angeles. He played the rest of the weekend series but apparently complained about the symptoms during the plane ride back to New York.
ESPNNewYork.com reported that Bay didn't think he'd be out long: "If all goes well, inside of a week," he said.
Another report said Bay was going on the disabled list, but it's not clear where that came from or whether that move is imminent.
At any rate, this probably takes Jeff Francoeur off the trade market, at least prior to Saturday's non-waiver deadline. With David DeJesus injured and lost for the year, and Corey Hart out for at least a few days with a wrist injury, the field of available outfielders is looking a bit thin outside the big names like Adam Dunn and Prince Fielder.
