New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28. SS Ruben Tejada is starting at shortstop and hitting sixth in the batting order against New York Mets SP David Phelps.
Fantasy Tip: Tejada ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a light-hitting infielder that should be considered a low-end shortstop play at FantasyScore tonight. Plus, Phelps has been surprisingly good for the Marlins in April.

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada is in a shortstop race with SS Wilmer Flores, but it appears manager Terry Collins is using it as a way to motivate Tejada. Collins said that Tejada needed to attend voluntary workouts before camp in order to be on the same footing as Flores. Tejada was working out in Port St. Lucie, Fla., in recent weeks before camp.
Fantasy Tip: Tejada is expected to win the shortstop job in camp, unless his performance drastically proves otherwise. There's really nothing to like about Tejada for fantasy purposes, though, aside from playing time. That makes him strictly an NL-only commodity.
