Mets | Using more lefties in lineup Monday

Mon, 05 May 2014 14:05:20 -0700

New York Mets SS Omar Quintanilla, OF Bobby Abreu and OF Eric Young Jr. are in the starting lineup Monday, May 5, because manager Terry Collins wanted more left-handed hitters in the lineup against Miami Marlins SP Nathan Eovaldi. Left-handed hitters are hitting .325 against Eovaldi this season.

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.

Mets | Ruben Tejada to be primary SS

Tue, 10 Sep 2013 16:06:35 -0700

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.
