NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Mets have put left fielder Jason Bay on the 15-day disabled list, a day after he broke a rib while trying to make a diving catch.

The Mets said Tuesday that an MRI exam showed a nondisplaced fracture on Bay's left side. Infielder Zach Lutz was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo.

Bay was hurt Monday night during a doubleheader sweep by San Francisco. In the fourth inning of the second game, Bay ran back on a long fly by Gregor Blanco. The ball bounced out of Bay's glove for a two-run double and he landed face-first near the warning track.

Bay left the game a few innings later. The 33-year-old Bay is hitting .240 with three home runs. Lutz was hitting .333 with three homers for Buffalo.
