NEW YORK -- Jason Bay spent the first three weeks on the disabled list because of strained left ribcage.

But really, he's still coming back from the concussion that ended his 2010 season.

For that matter, he's also trying to come back from a hugely disappointing first year with the Mets.

"I feel like I'm better," Bay said Thursday, before playing his first major-league game since last July 25. "Before the concussion, I wasn't playing that great. I feel like I'm better than that guy."

The Mets, who signed Bay to a four-year, $66 million contract, would certainly hope he is. In his first four months as a Met, Bay played in 95 games and hit just six home runs.

Citi Field isn't an easy place to hit home runs, but Bay actually homered at a better rate there (three in 159 at-bats) than on the road (three in 189 at-bats).

Bay didn't hit any home runs this spring, but he did hit two in 12 at-bats in his rehabilitation assignment with Class A St. Lucie.

He went 1-for-4 Thursday night, in the Mets' 9-1 win over the Astros, but the one hit was a pop-fly double that landed just inside the right-field foul line.

It's hard to know what affect Bay's concussion will have on his baseball skills. Twins first baseman Justin Morneau, also coming back from a concussion, is hitting .208 with no home runs in 53 at-bats this year.

But what has happened with Morneau isn't necessarily relevant.

"Every concussion is different," Bay said. "That's one thing I've learned."

Twins general manager Bill Smith said the same thing earlier this month when talking about Morneau.

"What he had is a very slow healing concussion," Smith said. "As the doctor told me, there are 30 different kinds of knee surgeries, so why would you think there's only one kind of concussion?"
