Jason Bay Scratched With Jammed Finger

Just as abdominal injuries were this spring, it appears finger injuries have become contagious as Jason Bay will miss today's game with a jammed index finger.

Originally scheduled to have the afternoon off, Lucas Duda is back in the lineup for the Mets. Scott Hairston, who was going to fill in for Duda in right, will now slide over to left to fill in for Bay.

The injury doesn't appear to be as serious as David Wright's, as Terry Collins has already stated that Bay will be available to pinch hit today.
