A make-good contract could be a perfect fit for both Jason Bay and the Red Sox.
A source with knowledge of the situation, however, did say that Bay had interest in potentially rejoining the Red Sox despite his controversial departure from the organization after the ‘09 season. (The Red Sox backed out of an agreed-upon four-year, $60 million deal during the ‘09 season, proceeding to ask Bay to undergo knee surgery at season’s end.) The source suggests the Washington native’s preference would be to play on the West Coast, but the familiarity of Boston would be a drawing card.
Bay is apparently healthy, having fully recovered from a a concussion which sidelined him in ‘12. The outfielder struggled mightily during his tenure with the Mets, hitting just .234 with a .687 OPS along with 26 home runs in 288 games. Yet one talent evaluator said regarding Bay, ““I think no player needs a fresh start more than him. I actually don’t think he is done. His problems [in New York] were more mental than physical.”
