Mets | Omar Quintanilla the SS

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said SS Omar Quintanilla remains the team's shortstop, and SS Ruben Tejada is unlikely to rejoin the team until rosters expand in September. "I get questions every day about when the other guy is coming back -- 'When's Ruben coming back?'" Collins said. "I've yet to see why Omar Quintanilla should lose his job. All he does is make plays like that night after night. You look at his batting average (.224) and it's not what he'd like it to be. But he's on base 33 percent of the time and he's done a really good job. We wouldn't be playing like we're playing without him." Tejada is hitting .257 since being sent down and is 4-for-52 since July 26.
