Roster Move: #Mets activate outfielder Jason Bay from 15-Day DL. Designate infielder Omar Quintanilla for assignment.— New York Mets (@Mets) July 17, 2012
To make room on their roster for Bay, the Mets designated infielder Omar Quintanilla for assignment.
Bay had been out of action for the past month after suffering a concussion colliding with the outfield wall during an attempted catch.
Prior to rejoining the Mets, Bay played in eight minor league rehab games; five with New York’s High-A club and three with their Triple-A affiliate. Over his eight games and 25 at-bats, the 33-year-old collected five hits, all singles, and one RBI.
Before hitting the DL, Bay had only maintained a line of .187/.253/.373 with two doubles, four home runs and six RBIs over his 75 at-bats.
Quintanilla, 30, has appeared in 29 games for the Mets this season, posting an OPS of .721 over his 70 at-bats.
