Mets | Lucas Duda could lose playing time against lefties

New York Mets manager Terry Collins is considering using an outfield of Jason Bay (concussion), Andres Torres and Scott Hairston against left-handed pitchers once Bay returns from the disabled list, with slumping OF Lucas Duda serving as the odd man out. "In Lucas' case, it's all about the bat," Collins said. "If he's driving in runs like he was early in the year, you can get by with some things (defensively), because the one thing you don't want to do is take his bat out of the lineup. When he's not hitting, both sides of the game have to be analyzed a little bit. And he knows that."
