Is Jason Bay Ready to Rock?

May 11, 2010 | By RotoRob | comment on this post
Jason Bay isn't exactly tearing it up for the New York Mets.
A slow start to his Met career has made left field a very lonely place for Jason Bay.

Jason Bay sure isn’t delivering on the Mets’ four-year, US$66 million investment so far, is he? We ranked this dude as a top 10 outfielder in the preseason, but he’s barely been a top 75 at his position so far. He’s being very aggressive, with the lowest P/PA of his career, and as a result his walk rate is obviously down (to its lowest level since 2007). Unfortunately, this lack of patience isn’t working as Bay has managed just one homer, 14 RBI and an extremely disappointing 735 OPS through 31 games.

Having said that, the Canadian slugger is showing some modest signs of life. He’s hit in four straight games, and while the five overall hits in this run is nothing to jump for joy over, it’s been good enough to raise his BA 10 points. He’s got a pair of doubles, one run, five RBI and a pair of walks during this stretch, so perhaps Bay is shaking off his early-season doldrums. May has been his best month in recent years, so if you have a chance to buy low on Bay, you better do it now.

  1. [...] Back in mid-May, we speculated that Jason Bay was about to go on a tear, and we were bang on there, as he wound up hitting over .300 with 15 RBI that month. Unfortunately, it’s been downhill since then as Bay has simply not been able to provide much return on the Mets’ investment in year one of his contract. He’s currently on the DL dealing with concussion issues, and there’s still no timetable for his return. It certainly doesn’t look like he’ll be ready to come off the DL when eligible on Tuesday. Bay has already been cut in some shallower leagues, and with reports that he’s not close to returning, expect him to wind up on plenty more in the coming weeks. If you’re in one of those shallow leagues, I’d suggest you dump Bay for Luke Scott, who might still be available. [...]
