Bay not yet close to returning from DL
ATLANTA -- Outfielder Jason Bay is "not close" to returning from the disabled list, according to a team official, and is unlikely to come off the DL when he is eligible next Tuesday.
Bay, who suffered a concussion after crashing into the left-field wall at Dodger Stadium on July 23, told trainer Ray Ramirez on Tuesday that he was feeling "a little better," according to a team spokesman, after visiting with a team physician earlier in the week.
But Bay has not begun participating in baseball activities, and the Mets have no indication of when he might attempt to do so. He must remain symptom-free for a period of time before the team medical staff will clear him for activity.
