Bay Still Not Close To Returning, Murph Bats Fifth, Dickey Takes The Hill: Mets Lineup V. Diamondbacks - May 6, 2012
Mets LF Jason Bay, who is eligible to come off the DL this week, is still a long way off from returning to the Mets lineup.
Mets manager Terry Collins said, "The other day his ribs were still pretty sore when he laughs or coughs." Collins further said that Bay will not come off the DL "for awhile."
Chris Young is scheduled to make a start in PSL on Thursday, and if all goes well, he might be in the Mets rotation sometime in June. Young should be a much better option than Schwinden, Batista, or anyone else presently on the Mets roster.
Daniel Murphy will be batting 5th in the order today. Collins is trying to get his hot bat in the position to drive in runs until Fearless Ike gets back on track.
RA Dickey will oppose Trevor Cahil. Dickey (3-1) has pitched well, and looks to build upon a strong start to the 2012 season.
