Jason Bay, the Mets outfielder out since April 23 with a fractured rib, is expected to come off the disabled list and play for the team on Tuesday evening in Washington D.C. against the Nationals, said team manager Terry Collins in a report from Adam Rubin of ESPN.

Bay was initially expected  back later this week on Friday but had played well enough in his minor-league assignment that team officials moved up his return to Tuesday. He had gone 2-6 with three strike outs and a stolen base in the minors.

Prior to the injury, Bay had played in 15 games for the Mets, hitting .240 and recording three home runs.  As the last part of his rehab assignment, Bay will play in the outfield on Monday night for Class A St. Lucie of the Florida State League club.

In addition to the return of Bay, Rubin reported that the Mets will have Ruben Tejada, out with a right quadriceps strain, back in the lineup for the Subway Series opener at Yankee Stadium on Friday.

Chris Young will also be in the lineup on Tuesday after having surgery in May to repair his right shoulder, and Miguel Batista is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday for the game against the Nationals.
