"It wasn't that bad to begin with," said Bay of the tightness in his right hamstring, which caused him to miss Thursday afternoon's game against St. Louis. "So I'm hoping (Friday) that I should be all right."

Bay said he could've pinch-hit Thursday afternoon in an emergency situation, but would've had to "take it easy on the bases."
