Jason Bay Injury Update: Mets Outfielder Placed On Disabled List

New York Mets outfielder Jason Bay exited Friday's game against the Reds with a "possible concussion" – his second head injury in as many years. On Saturday, the Mets officially placed Bay on the seven-day disabled list, according to the team's official Twitter. Meanwhile, Justin Turner has been reinstated from the disabled list.

The 33-year-old Bay is having a horrendous year for the Mets, as he's batting just .187, with four home runs and six runs batted in. He's striking out at the highest rate of his career and walking less than he ever has.

The good news is, a turnaround may be in order when Bay returns from his concussion injury. The outfielder's BABIP is an unfortunately-low .204 on the year – 81 points below his career-average. He's also making contact at his career rate (74 percent) and swinging-and-missing below his career rate (9.1 percent). Advanced stats suggest he's been a bit unlucky, to this point in the season.
