Ruben Tejada making most of his opportunity

Although he ended the Mets furious rally against Craig Kimbrel and the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday night with a strikeout, it’s time we put aside our prejudices and  applaud Ruben Tejada for providing solid play at shortstop out of the gate. Sure, Tejada is no world beater, but who said he had to be? It’s not like he’s been awful to start the season. After Wednesday night’s o-fer, Tejada is now batting .240 to go along with a solid .345 OBP and meager .280 slugging percentage. Again, nothing earth shattering, but not abysmal either. All offseason and into the spring, the Mets...

Notes: 'He didn't know what to do'

NEW YORK -- Ruben Tejada likely wouldn't have scored, anyway. Bryce Harper made a great throw to the plate when Tejada was trying to score in the fifth inning Wednesday, and Nationals catcher Jose Lobaton had plenty of time to take the throw and set up for a possible collision. But instead of a collision, there was confusion. Tejada, believing that the new rules on plays at the plate ruled out running into the catcher, went in standing up and tried unsuccessfully to step around Lobaton.

The best thing for Ruben Tejada is to start Wilmer Flores

I like Ruben Tejada. However, there’s a big gulf between liking a player and thinking he should be penciled in to start 150 games. And at this point, there’s no reason to think that Tejada has earned the starting shortstop job in any way. It’s my belief that if the Mets open the season with Tejada as their starting shortstop, they are setting him up to fail. The fans consider shortstop to be the biggest problem with the team. Tejada was a big part of that problem in 2013, he’s been criticized openly by management for his effort and conditioning and he’s had a brutal start (.595 OPS...

Gammons Notes: Ruben Tejada, Eddie Perez and Lucas Giolito

Ruben Tejada There is no sense around the Mets that they are heartily inclined to rush to sign Stephen Drew and dump Ruben Tejada, despite Tejada’s .120 spring average. If Drew’s price came down to the $7M AAV area, maybe, but that’s hard to swallow given the fact that he turned down $14.1M from the […]

Tejada, Wheeler & the lineup

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Ruben Tejada finally had a big day. The struggling shortstop went 3-for-3 against Atlanta, matching his hits total from his first 25 at-bats. Tejada entered the day batting .120 to go with his four errors. …
