Mets manager Terry Collins said Willie Harris will start in left field Friday in place of Jason Bay, who went on the disabled list Thursday with a strained rib cage muscle.

Though Lucas Duda will likely make the bulk of the starts until Bay returns, Harris was an easy choice for Friday because of his numbers against Marlins ace Josh Johnson.

In 22 career plate appearances against Johnson, Harris has a .500 on-base percentage, with seven walks and four hits.
