Mets | Ruben Tejada considered for leadoff

Sat, 07 Jun 2014 18:08:24 -0700

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday, June 7, that he is considering using SS Ruben Tejada in the leadoff spot going forward.

Fantasy Tip: More at-bats is always good news for a fantasy option. Tejada would see an increase in appeal, would still only be worth using in NL-only leagues and some of the deepest mixed formats.

Mets | Ruben Tejada has not lost shortstop job

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 18:16:35 -0700

New York Mets SS Omar Quintanilla was in the starting lineup for the second time in four games Tuesday, April 15, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Manager Terry Collins insisted that it isn't a sign SS Ruben Tejada is losing the starting job. Collins cited Tuesday's inclusion of Quintanilla was a matchup issue, as Diamondbacks SP Bronson Arroyo had an opposing batting average of .295 by left-handed hitters (such as Quintanilla) last season, while righties hit just .219 against him.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada is hitting below the Mendoza line for the season, and his on-base percentage of .267 in 45 plate appearances does little for fantasy owners. For now, he is only worth using in the deepest of NL-only leagues until he starts to show some signs of life at the dish.

Mets | Ruben Tejada expected to start at SS

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 17:02:24 -0700

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada is expected to open the season as the starting shortstop, with SS Omar Quintanilla backing him up. 2B Wilmer Flores will continue to make spring starts at shortstop, and he's expected to see more action at the 6 to start the year at Triple-A Las Vegas. The team hopes Flores' winter conditioning work will improve his range at shortstop. The Mets could consider bringing Flores up to replace Tejada if Tejada struggles early on.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada will be on a very short leash to start the year, and don't rule out the Mets making a trade if they feel they need to. Don't think about putting Tejada on your roster unless you're desperate for at-bats in an NL-only league.
