Mets | Ruben Tejada sheds walking boot

Wed, 27 Jan 2016 17:34:00 -0800

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada (leg) recently shed the walking boot which was protecting his fractured right fibula. He has been working out in his native Panama and he could report to the team's spring training complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla. Monday, Feb. 1, which would be more than three weeks before the mandatory reporting date for position players.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada is expected to split time at shortstop with Wilmer Flores this season, although he is considered the weaker hitter of the two. He should only be viewed as middle infield depth for NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Mets | Ruben Tejada signs one-year pact

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 11:41:30 -0800

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada avoided arbitration with a one-year, $3 million deal Friday, Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada doesn't have a clear path to a full-time role and is a depth MI in NL-only leagues.

Mets | Ruben Tejada, Wilmer Flores to compete

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 15:32:36 -0800

New York Mets SSs Ruben Tejada and Wilmer Flores will compete for the starting shortstop job next year, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Both Tejada and Flores are now rehabbing from injuries. Tejada broke his leg in the playoffs and Flores fractured his ankle in winter ball. Both should be healthy for next season. Flores is the more attractive fantasy piece because of his ability to hit for power, while Tejada is strictly defensive-minded.

Mets | NYM unlikely to keep Ruben Tejada

Wed, 18 Nov 2015 18:28:33 -0800

The New York Mets are unlikely to tender a contract to INF Ruben Tejada.

Fantasy Tip: The arbitration-eligible Tejada earned $1.88 million in 2015 and would be projected to make slightly over $3 million next year if the team went to a hearing, an amount the Mets apparently do not feel comfortable paying to a player who isn't guaranteed to have a starting role. Tejada hit .261 with three home runs and 28 RBIs in 116 regular-season games but saw his year end prematurely when he suffered a fractured right fibula in the NLCS. He is not a great offensive option and can go undrafted next spring in most fantasy formats.

Mets | Dilson Herrera could start at 2B

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 12:01:36 -0800

New York Mets 2B Dilson Herrera is a "viable alternative" at second base if 2B Daniel Murphy does not return in 2016. The Mets are expected to make a one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer to Murphy by the deadline Friday, Nov. 6. The Mets are prepared to use a middle-infield combination of SSs Wilmer Flores and Ruben Tejada and Herrera next year. Herrera hit .211 with three home runs and six RBI in 90 at-bats in the majors in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera hit 11 home runs and had a .331 batting average on the farm this year before calling up, so he surely has intriguing power for a middle infielder, and if he earns the starting job at the keystone if Murphy leaves, he definitely would garner attention in standard fantasy leagues as a middle infield option.

Mets | Ruben Tejada to be ready next year

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 10:47:27 -0700

Updating a previous item, New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada (leg) will be in a cast for six to eight weeks but will be ready for spring training next season.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada is a defensive specialist that had only three home runs in 2015. You should avoid him in all shallow mixed drafts next season.

Mets | Ruben Tejada won't need surgery

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 10:43:40 -0700

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada (leg) will not need surgery to fix the non-displaced fracture in his right fibula, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada's season is over after hitting .261 (94-for-360) with just three home runs and 28 RBI. He's more known for his defensive work than his bat, which basically only makes him a target in NL-only or really deep mixed leagues in a middle infield slot.

Mets | Ruben Tejada has broken fibula

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 11:04:56 -0700

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada (fibula) suffered a fractured right fibula during Game 2 of the National League Division Series Saturday, Oct. 10, when Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley slid into him on a play at second base. He will miss the remainder of the postseason.

Fantasy Tip: Wilmer Flores ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) will serve as the Mets' starting shortstop the rest of the way. He went 11-for-21 with two doubles and five RBIs against the Dodgers during the regular season, making him a player you may want to consider using in FantasyScore for the rest of this series.

Mets | Ruben Tejada expected to start

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 09:41:05 -0700

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada is expected to be the starter at shortstop for Game 1 of the division series against the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, Oct. 9, according to manager Terry Collins. SS Wilmer Flores (illness) lost 10 pounds over a five-day span recently while dealing with strep throat. Tejada is batting .357 with three walks in 17 career plate appearances against Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Despite Tejada's ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) good numbers against Kershaw, he's a big gamble on FantasyScore and should only be used for salary cap relief. Flores ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) should be avoided altogether.

Mets | Wilmer Flores out Thursday

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 09:04:17 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores (back) is out of the lineup Thursday, Oct. 1. SS Ruben Tejada is starting at the 6 and is hitting second against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) isn't a terrible option on FantasyScore today if you're looking to save a little money at the position. He hit .340 (17-for-50) with a home run and six RBI last month.
