Mets | Ruben Tejada to be primary SS
New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada will be the primary shortstop for the remainder of the season after being called up from the minors, although he won't start Tuesday, Sept. 10. The team is likely to explore other options at shortstop this offseason, though, and Tejada will be arbitration-eligible for the first time with a salary less than $1 million in 2014. Tejada hit .288 with two home runs and 24 RBIs in 269 plate appearances for Triple-A Buffalo this year.
Fantasy Tip: The club was disappointed with Tejada's work ethic this year, so he'll have to prove himself in the final few weeks in order to stick around. He's an option in NL-only leagues only, and Omar Quintanilla loses any little value he had.
