Concussion Leaves Jason Bay Out of Mets’ Lineup After Wall Collision

The season woes continue for Jason Bay, who was left out of the Mets' lineup for their series opener against St. Louis with a mild concussion.

Bay suffered the concussion on Friday night in Los Angeles when he collided with the outfield wall while making a catch against the Dodgers, ESPN.com reports. Though the collision kept him on the ground for a moment or two, he got back up and played the rest of the game. Bay played in Saturday and Sunday's contests against L.A. as well. It wasn't until the flight back to New York that the left fielder began experiencing dull headaches.

Mets GM Jerry Manuel made the announcement that Bay was out of Tuesday's lineup, and said he would be evaluated within the next few days. If all goes well in the evaluation, Bay could be back playing before the week is out.

Angel Pagan is replacing Bay in left field for Tuesday's matchup with the Cardinals.
