Jason Bay was officially put on the 15-Day Disabled List yesterday with a strained left rib cage. The move is backdated to March 25.
This morning Bay speaking about the injury said he actually suffered it 2 days earlier taking swings during batting practice. Bay said it was “devastating” to have had the injury the way he did.
Regarding the plan on when he will be back Bay said, “The goal is I think they’re going to backdate it enough where I would be eligible to come back on the 9th, I believe. In talking to the doctors — things change — but in talking to the doctors they think it’s very reasonable to think I could be out there for that, which would be nice.”
