Talking to reporters today in Atlanta, manager Terry Collins said Jason Bay could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Tuesday. Bay is currently at Triple-A Buffalo on a rehab assignment.
He is on the DL after sustaining a concussion, June 15.
Meanwhile, Lucas Duda is out of today’s lineup with tightness in his left hamstring. Duda hoped the tightness would dissipate during the All-Star break but it did not.
“It’s been bothering him for a while, and he thought the rest was going to help him,” Collins said. “And it’s stiffened up on him a little bit. We’re going to give him a couple of days’ rest, use him late in the game if we need him.
“But, as I told him again today, I’d rather have him on the bench than have him start the game — especially in this humidity — and have it cramp up and have to pull him out in the third, because then it really shortens the moves you can make.”
