Jason Bay LF/RF SEA 11 Months
Jason Bay says he hasn't filed any official paperwork yet but that he doesn't see a scenario in which he plays next season, according to Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca.
Bay had been considering an off from a Japanese team, previously speculated to be the Yomiuri Giants, but has decided to focus on his family instead. If Bay has played his final game, the outfielder will finish with a .266/.360/.481 career line and 222 home runs in parts of 11 seasons. The 35-year-old spent 2013 with the Mariners before being released in August.

Jason Bay homered and walked three times against the Cubs on Friday.
Bay is batting just .220, but he has nine homers and 25 walks in 173 at-bats, making him a fairly productive outfielder for the Mariners. The only reason he hasn't played much of late is that he's dealing with a hamstring injury.

Jason Bay said Thursday that his tight hamstring feels "10 times better" and he expects to return in a day or two.
Bay hadn't played since his hammy tightened up on in during Sunday's game. The Mariners don't face a lefty until next Tuesday, so they can afford to use Bay only off the bench for a few more days if they want.

Jason Bay is nursing a sore hamstring.
Bay normally would have started Monday against Angels lefty Jason Vargas, but he felt his hamstring tighten up during Sunday's game. "He got a little knot in there," Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. "We got him out here early and tried to have him run a little bit, but we talked about it and felt we'd be putting him in harm's way." Bay is considered day-to-day.

Jason Bay hit a pair of solo homers in Saturday's loss to the Twins.
Well, how about that. Bay now has eight home runs through 117 at-bats this season. It's worth noting that David Wright is the only Mets' player with a higher OPS than Bay (.822) this season. The 34-year-old outfielder might not be relevant in mixed fantasy leagues again, but the change of scenery has worked out pretty well for him so far.
