Mets' Bay back on DL with 2nd concussion

  • Print

NEW YORK -- Jason Bay is back on the disabled list with his second concussion in two years.

The New York Mets placed their oft-injured left fielder on baseball's seven-day DL for concussions Saturday and activated infielder Justin Turner from the 15-day disabled list.

After missing six weeks this season with a broken rib, Bay was hurt again Friday night when he crashed into the outfield wall while trying to catch Jay Bruce's inside-the-park home run for Cincinnati.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Bay has been told to stay home and rest for a couple of days until he's examined by doctors. Collins isn't sure how long Bay will be sidelined but expects it to be more than seven days.

Bay missed the final two months of the 2010 season with a concussion he sustained slamming into the left-field fence to make a catch at Dodger Stadium.

"I'm very worried about it because Jason's first one was pretty severe and he hit the wall pretty hard yesterday," Collins said. "He's pretty sore today. Real sore. So we're just going to have to, again, bide our time and see how he comes out of it in the next few days and see how he feels."

It's the latest setback for Bay, a pricey bust in New York due to injuries and a lack of production at the plate.

The three-time all-star signed a $66 million, four-year contract with the Mets in January 2010 after setting career highs with 36 homers and 119 RBIs for Boston in 2009. But he played only 95 games in his first season with New York and 123 last year. He has missed 44 out of 66 games this year, leaving him with just 22 homers and 110 RBIs in two-plus seasons with the Mets.

The 33-year-old Bay is batting .187 with four home runs and six RBIs. He was on the disabled list from April 24 until June 6 with a broken rib and went 2 for 25 with a home run after being activated.

Hamilton at home

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton has been released from the hospital after becoming dehydrated because of an intestinal virus.

The Rangers said Hamilton was released Saturday morning and was home resting. Hamilton is expected to work out at the ballpark today and accompany the team to San Diego for a series that starts Monday.

Hamilton was hospitalized early Friday, when he was given fluids because of a virus going around in his family.

Rangers manager Ron Washington had said Friday that he didn't expect Hamilton to play in the weekend series against the Houston Astros.

Beckett goes on DL

CHICAGO -- The Boston Red Sox have put ace Josh Beckett on the 15-day disabled list because of inflammation in his right shoulder.

Manager Bobby Valentine said before Saturday's game against the Chicago Cubs that the Red Sox are "going to take the conservative route."
