In the season of 2012, Ruben Tejada went from being Jose Reyes‘ backup to the full time starting shortstop for the New York Mets.

It was a career year for the young man in a lot of ways, but the team was still terrible...

But a lot has changed since then, as neither SS nor LF is a particular weakness...

Wilmer Flores still has a major offensive flaw

Wilmer Flores has had an interesting season, to say the least. Heading into the 2015 campaign there were two big and related questions: how would Flores fair at shortstop and, if he was bad, would his hitting develop to the point where it didn’t matter?
