Pre-Game News: Bay has a stiff neck

According to SNY Producer Matt Dunn, Jason Bay has a stiff neck, and so he will have the afternoon off.

In addition, Dunn says Justin Turner’s sore thumb has flared up, and he will have the afternoon off as well.

Prior to this afternoon’s game against the Rangers, Terry Collins spoke with reporters and said David Wright will begin hitting and running this week, and called a July 15 return “feasible”.

Wright has been on the disabled list since last month with a stress fracture in his back. He was cleared last week to resume baseball activities, and left for Port St. Lucie to begin his rehabilitation. Collins expects to be in Port St. Lucie with Wright during the All-Star Break.
