Description: The Mariners have designated outfielder Jason Bay for assignment.
Insight: Michael Morse's return from the DL on Tuesday cost Bay his roster spot. Bay (.204, 11 HR, 20 RBI) hasn't had a productive season in the big leagues since 2009.
7/11/2013 12:03:00 PM
Description: Mariners left fielder Jason Bay hasn't done well in his career against Ryan Dempster.
Insight: Bay has only collected two hits in 16 lifetime at bats versus the Red Sox righthander. Bay's home run total has improved since last season (11 in 63 games this year versus eight in 70 games in 2012) but all of his homers have been solo shots and he's still batting just .215 for the year. Even in 10 and 12-team leagues he's not much of an option.
6/20/2013 8:56:00 PM
Description: Seattle outfielder Jason Bay said Thursday that his tight hamstring feels "10 times better," according to Greg Johns of
Insight: Bay hopes he is only a day or two away from returning to the lineup. The outfielder is hitting .222 with eight homers this season and isn't a good fantasy option.
6/1/2013 8:25:00 PM
Description: Seattle outfielder Jason Bay went 2-for-5 with a pair of solo homers Saturday against the Twins.
Insight: Bay has eight homers in 41 games, as many as he hit in 70 last season, but he's batting .239 and is only a fantasy option in deep AL-only leagues.
5/8/2013 10:06:00 AM
Description: Seattle outfielder Jason Bay has a career .364 batting average (8-for-22) against Pittsburgh right-hander A.J. Burnett.
Insight: Bay is coming off a dismal season, but has actually looked pretty good over the past two weeks, batting .345 with a 1.049 OPS and a pair of home runs in nine games.
12/5/2012 6:40:00 PM
Description: Outfielder Jason Bay has agreed to a one-year pact with the Seattle Mariners.
Insight: Seattle isn't far away from where he grew up in British Columbia so the deal makes sense for Bay. With that said, Bay is coming off a dismal season and we wouldn't expect him to improve much playing half of his games at pitcher-friendly Safeco Field.
11/7/2012 7:11:00 PM
Description: Outfielder Jason Bay's contract has been terminated, making him a free agent.
Insight: The Mets let Bay out of his contract one year early. Bay's phone probably won't be ringing off the hook with offers after his miserable .165/8 HR showing in 2012.
Cold9/10/2012 10:12:00 AM
Description: New York outfielder Jason Bay is hitless in 11 at-bats against Washington lefty Gio Gonzalez with six strikeouts.
Insight: Bay continues to prove that he's no longer worthy of a roster spot on your fantasy team with his .165 batting average and .546 OPS.
9/2/2012 8:46:00 PM
Description: New York outfielder Jason Bay crushed a grand slam Sunday versus the Marlins.
Insight: This was Bay's first homer since August 16th. He's having a very disappointing year (.160, 7 HR, 18 RBI) and rarely starts for the Mets anymore. Don't be fooled into adding Bay in fantasy despite his excellent performance on Sunday.
8/26/2012 12:46:00 PM
Description: Mets left fielder Jason Bay isn't starting Sunday's series finale against Houston.
Insight: Bay is hitting an abysmal .152 for the season and shouldn't be owned in any fantasy formats.
8/22/2012 10:23:00 AM
Description: New York left fielder Jason Bay is no longer an everyday outfielder for the Mets, but he should be in there against Colorado starter Jeff Francis. He's faced the Rockies lefty 12 times and has pounded out eight hits (.667) including a pair of homers.
Insight: Bay (.151, 6 HR, 13 RBI in 48 games) has done nothing this season to warrant attention from fantasy owners, but Wednesday may be your best day to get production out of him.
8/12/2012 3:34:00 PM
Description: History suggests that New York left fielder Jason Bay will do well Sunday against Atlanta's Ben Sheets. In 30 at bats, Bay has hit .400 against Sheets with a home run and three RBI.
Insight: Bay's lack of production has been almost laughable this season (.150, 5 HR, 11 RBI in 44 games) but if somehow you're still holding onto him in fantasy, today would be the day to play him.
8/11/2012 6:53:00 PM
Description: New York left fielder Jason Bay wasn't on the lineup card for Saturday's game versus Atlanta.
Insight: He'll sit for the fourth time in the Mets' past seven games, a clear indication that Bay's days as a starting major league outfielder are over.
8/7/2012 4:59:00 PM
Description: According to Newsday's David Lennon, Mets outfielder Jason Bay is no longer the team's regular left fielder, manager Terry Collins said Tuesday.
Insight: If Jason Bay is still your fantasy team's everyday left fielder it's likely that you gave up on the season a few months ago. Bay will carry a .154 average and .533 OPS to the Mets' bench.
8/1/2012 4:27:00 PM
Description: Mets left fielder Jason Bay has hit .400 against Giants starter Matt Cain throughout his career.
Insight: If you have a weak stomach, you're not going to want to look at Bay's stats this season because they're pretty awful (.162, 5 HRs, 8 RBIs). But if you can get past that and just look at the matchup, Bay actually isn't a bad play Wednesday night versus Cain (10-3, 2.80 ERA).
7/29/2012 3:28:00 PM
Description: Mets left fielder Jason Bay has a nice track record against Arizona's Joe Saunders. He's hitting .500 with a pair of home runs against the Diamondbacks lefty.
Insight: Most owners have lost faith in Bay (.164, 5 HRs, 8 RBIs) by now but if you still have him on your roster he could come in handy on Sunday.
7/22/2012 12:19:00 PM
Description: Mets left fielder Jason Bay is not in the lineup for New York's series finale Sunday afternoon against Los Angeles.
Insight: Bay, who is 4-for-17 (.235) since returning from the DL earlier in the week, is on pace to finish with the lowest batting average of his 10-year major league career this season (.196).
7/17/2012 7:39:00 PM
Description: New York outfielder Jason Bay has recovered from his concussion and is back in the Mets' lineup Tuesday against Washington.
Insight: He's playing in left field and batting fifth. Despite a .273 career average, Bay is hitting only .187 in 22 games so far this season.
7/15/2012 4:00:00 PM
Description: The Mets expect outfielder Jason Bay to come off the DL in time to play in Wednesday's game against Washington. Bay has been sidelined with a concussion since the middle of June.
Insight: Bay is currently on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo. The 30-year-old version of Bay was a fantasy behemoth (.267, 36 HRs, 119 RBIs with Boston in 2009). Unfortunately those days are long gone for Bay, who stopped being fantasy relevant as soon as he put on a Mets uniform back in 2010.
6/23/2012 4:31:00 PM
Description: According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Mets outfielder Jason Bay is no longer suffering from concussion symptoms.
Insight: Bay could be cleared soon for workouts. The outfielder was concussed eight days ago after smashing into the left field wall trying to make a diving catch.
