RUBEN TEJADA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Collins: Shortstop Up For Grabs Between Wilmer Flores and Ruben Tejada

Talking to reporters at the Winter Meetings in San Diego on Monday, manager Terry Collins said that Ruben Tejada will be a candidate for the starting shortstop job if team doesn’t get a new one and it’s just him and Wilmer Flores. Collins said Flores hasn’t earned the job yet and that shortstop is up for grabs between him and Tejada. “I’m not gonna name Wilmer Flores just...

Mets Non-Tender Just One Player

With Tuesday’s 11:59 PM ET Non-Tender deadline looming, the New York Mets weren’t faced with many tough questions. The only question surrounding the deadline for the club was if they would tender shortstop Ruben Tejada a contract or not. Eventually the team settled on retaining Tejada and non-tendering a single player. That man was outfielder Eric Young Jr. Young Jr. was never...

Look For Mets To Keep Tejada And Non-Tender Young

The Mets have until midnight today to decide whether to tender contracts to infielder Ruben Tejada and outfielder Eric Young. Speculation has the Mets keeping Tejada and cutting Young loose for economic and practical reasons. The Mets are uncertain about shortstop but appear to be leaning to unproven Wilmer Flores. Given the high probability of not acquiring a “name’’ shortstop...

Eric Young Expected To Be Non-Tendered By Tuesday Deadline

Last month, MLB Trade Rumors tabbed Eric Young Jr. and Ruben Tejada as non-tender candidates for the Mets. However, Adam Rubin of ESPN NY hears from team insiders that the Mets are likely to hang onto Tejada who still has some value in a backup role. Sources have also told Rubin that Young will most certainly be released because the Mets believe they can get comparable production...

Non-tender deadline looms for Eric Young Jr. and Ruben Tejada

Featured Post: What To Do With Ruben Tejada

Deciding what to do with Ruben Tejada is somewhat of a difficult decision this offseason.  He definitely improved from his horrid 2013 season to become serviceable defensively, and he has always hit lefties relatively well. He’s not a starting shortstop option for the Mets going forward, but as I’ve stated in the past, he can have value in a platoon role, or strictly as a backup...

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...

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...
