Analysis: Tejada lost his job as the team's starting shortstop last year, when he was demoted to the minors for months during an injury-plagued season. He missed time with a strained right quadriceps and broke his right leg on Sept. 18, eight days after he was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas. Tejada batted .202 with no homers, 10 RBIs and a dreadful .519 OPS in 57 games. But assuming he's healthy by the start of the season, he's in line to start at shortstop again because the Mets have been unable to find a suitable upgrade this winter.

Analysis: Tejada had a doctor's appointment Thursday, but Collins said there's no reason to think the shortstop won't be 100 percent by spring training.

His .209 average and pathetic .529 OPS suggests that's probably where he belongs until rosters expand when the Mets play their meaningless games in September.
