Mets | Omar Quintanilla could earn job

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said SS Ruben Tejada (quadriceps) won't automatically be given his job at shortstop back when he returns. INF Omar Quintanilla will have the chance to prove he deserves a starting job in the meantime. Quintanilla will be the regular shortstop with Tejada out, but 2B Justin Turner may get an occasional nod if the team faces a tough lefty. Tejada received a cortisone injection Thursday, May 30, and doesn't know how much time he'll miss. Tejada missed seven weeks last year with a right quad strain.

Fantasy Tip: For now, Quintanilla should only be considered in very deep mixed leagues or NL-only leagues. If he performs well and takes the job, he'll warrant additional attention as middle infield depth.
