TORONTO -- Before departing with teammates, Jason Bay told ESPNNewYork.com he plans to attempt to take batting practice Monday in Pittsburgh -- his most extensive activity since fracturing a rib on an attempted catch at Citi Field on April 23.

Bay started swinging lightly this weekend, his first time doing so since the injury. Doctors must sign off on Monday's activity.

"Definitely plausible," Bay said about the intended batting practice.

Bay may be only a week from returning.
