RUBEN TEJADA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Tejada Earns Start At Second Base On Sunday

After Saturday’s 3-2 victory against the Phillies, Terry Collins told reporters that Ruben Tejada will start at second base in the rubber match on Sunday. Tejada had himself a solid defensive performance at shortstop, highlighted by a nifty rally-ending 6-4-3 double play in the eighth inning after the Phillies loaded the bases and threatened to break the game wide open.

Tejada Makes Most Of Opportunity

Mets manager Terry Collins was rewarded with Saturday night’s decision to go with Ruben Tejada over Wilmer Flores at shortstop. It will be interesting to see how long Collins rides the hot hand after Tejada’s play in the 3-2 victory over Philadelphia. Last weekend, Collins went with Tejada in consecutive games after a string of Flores’ errors. At the time I wondered if the...

There may still be hope for Ruben Tejada

Ex-Met shortstop Jose Reyes made a small bit of news this week when he was critical of Ruben Tejada‘s inability to lock down the starting shortstop job. Specifically, Reyes insinuated that perhaps Tejada simply had not put in the required work to hold it down long-term. This is mostly of note because Reyes isn’t very critical of anybody publicly. It also wasn’t that long...

Ruben Tejada is free of expectations, but what is his value?

For the first time since Jose Reyes’ departure in 2011, Ruben Tejada will head to Spring Training free of high expectations. Tejada is no stranger to scrutiny; it oddly began three years ago when he arrived on-time for baseball activities. However, after an abysmal 2013, the Mets’ back-up middle infielder is a bargain at his $1.88 million salary – and could be the best back...

The 2015 shortstop free agent market benefits Ruben Tejada

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but there is a good possibility that Ruben Tejada will be the Mets shortstop in 2015. There is a huge caveat with that statement, and that is the assumption that Wilmer Flores fails to take the position via his superior offensive capabilities, or Matt Reynolds down in Triple-A does not impress. Both could make a strong case either during the...

Ruben Tejada: Maybe We Were All Wrong?

Don’t look now because I’m afraid we might jinx it, but what the hell, here comes Ruben Tejada. Yes that Ruben Tejada. The same kid who had been much maligned and dragged through the mud by even his own manager and general manager for most of 2013. The same kid who has been painted as a fat, lazy, good-for-nothing who was washed up at the tender age of 23. That same kid is now...

It’s time to part ways with Ruben Tejada

Over the past several months, it has been rumored that Ruben Tejada’s time with the Mets was limited, either by impending demotion or release. From his lackluster play for the entire 2013 season, to calls for his ouster this winter, to Wilmer Flores’ recent promotion, it seems like Tejada has had one foot out the door for quite some time. It might be time to close that door...

New York Mets: Solving the Ruben Tejada Problem

Ruben Tejada has struggled to regain his 2012 form Ask any New York Mets fan what the biggest issues are with the team and there is a good likelihood they will say the shortstop. Following the departure of Jose Reyes, Ruben Tejada was pegged as “the guy” to replace him. The fact that the team didn’t even make an offer to Reyes shows the confidence they had in Tejada. In his...

Has Ruben Tejada Been Unlucky in 2014?

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada has been the subject of abject criticism in recent months for his underwhelming performance. The 24-year-old Panamanian is off to a slow start both offensively and defensively, but there may be reason to believe his offensive production has been the result of bad luck. Tejada entered Sunday’s finale against the Atlanta Braves hitting a meager .184...

What’s wrong with Travis d’Arnaud?

Because of Ruben Tejada’s complete ineptitude this spring, one vital piece of the New York Mets’ future has flown under the radar: Travis d’Arnaud. Maybe it’s because he at least sort of looked like he knew how to play baseball last year. Nevertheless, Travis d’Arnaud is having just as bad a spring as Tejada. I understand that it’s only spring training, and it would be...
