Mets Insider: Ruben Tejada passes concussion test, but Wilmer Flores plays

After taking a 94 mph fastball to the head on Wednesday, Ruben Tejada got a new batting helmet to replace the one that was cracked by the ball. The Mets shortstop, however, is not sure when he will get a chance to use it.

Flores finishes 1-for-3 in return

Wilmer Flores is back for his third stint with the Mets this season. This time it’s due to the injury to Ruben Tejada, who was beaned in Wednesday’s 3-2 win over the Mariners in Seattle. The problem for Flores is that Tejada should be back in the lineup Friday night. That means he goes to the bench or spells Daniel Murphy at second or David Wright at third. Flores said that he can make it work. “I’ll just have to find a way,” said Flores, who went 1-for-3 in Thursday's 9-1 loss to Milwaukee.

Manager Terry Collins is taking the cautious route with his 24-year-old shortstop. “Talked to the trainers last night,” Collins said. “We thought we’d give him one more day just as a precaution.
