Mets Will Platoon Jason Bay, Won't Release Him With $16M Owed In 2013
The Mets will use Jason Bay as a platoon player and general manager Sandy Alderson says the team has no plans to part ways with him.
Bay has one more season at $16 million remaining in his four-year, $66 million deal.
"Certainly, there are times when it is appropriate to eat a contract," Alderson said.
"There are other times when it is not. Jason Bay is not going anywhere, nor is his contract."
Bay will predominately play against left-handed pitching during the rest of the season.
