Jason Bay scratched from Friday’s lineup with jammed shoulder

Leave a comment

Jason Bay will miss Friday’s game against the Braves and probably most of 2012 because of a jammed right shoulder, the Mets announced.

Well, the Mets didn’t actually announce that Bay would miss most of 2012.  That’s just an easy assumption since he is, in fact, a Met.  Technically, the team is saying he’s day-to-day.

With Scott Hairston landing on the disabled list, the Mets have Jason Pridie playing left field tonight.  Pridie, as you may remember, hit a homer while filling in for Angel Pagan back in May.  He’s currently hitting .224/.300/.335 in 170 at-bats.

Bay, as you may remember, hit a homer while playing for the Red Sox in 2009.  He is hitting .233/.318/.341 in 369 at-bats this season.

The Royals recalled infielder Ramon Torres from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday. He didn’t get into a game until starting Thursday night’s game against the Rangers, batting ninth.

In the top of the second inning, facing Austin Bibens-Dirkx, Torres laced a single up the middle. Center fielder Delino DeShields charged in on it, attempting to keep Ryan Goins at second base, but the ball went right past his glove, through his legs, and nearly trickled all the way to the warning track. Goins scored easily and Torres was waved home, too. He managed to narrowly beat the throw, touching home plate with his left hand on a head-first slide.

The play was officially scored a single and a three-base error. Torres wasn’t credited with an RBI on the play. But at least the Royals got two runs out of it.
