Bay likely for DL

It is expected Jason Bay will be placed on the disabled list today with lingering concussion symptoms and likely will be replaced by Jesus Feliciano.

Bay going on the DL means it is less likely the Mets will deal Jeff Francoeur this weekend. However, if the Mets slide out of contention expect Francoeur to be dealt in August in a waiver trade.
