      Mets' Ruben Tejada: Ditches walking boot

      Tejada, who fractured his fibula as a result of Chase Utley's late, takeout slide in the playoffs, has shed his walking boot and is working out in Panama, ESPN New York reports Tejada may report to Port St. Lucie on Monday, three weeks before the required reporting date. He is slated to be the back up at second base and shortstop, though it's still possible the Mets try and deal him to clear some salary or designate him for assignment to create room on the 40-man roster.

      Mets' Ruben Tejada: Agrees to one-year deal with the Mets

      Tejada agreed to a one-year, $3 million contract with the Mets on Friday, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports. Tejada will get a pay bump of $1.12 million in his second year of arbitration, now putting that part of the offseason behind him. The 26-year-old will now look to unseat Asdrubal Cabrera for playing time at shortstop, though he'll likely enter spring training behind the veteran on the depth chart.

      Mets' Ruben Tejada: Gets tendered by Mets

      The Mets tendered contracts to all eight of their arbitration-eligible players, including Tejada (fractured right fibula), before Thursday's deadline, ESPN New York reports. This is a reversal from what looked like what happened, as the Mets had appeared to be set to cut Tejada loose. Tejada made $1.88 million in 2015 and could earn between $2.5-3 million if he goes to arbitration. As of now, he likely will fill a back up infield role, seeing time at shortstop and second base.

      Mets' Ruben Tejada: May get non-tendered by Mets

      Tejada (fractured right fibula) might get non-tendered by the Mets, ESPN New York reports. Tejada made $1.88 million in 2015 and could earn $3 million if he goes to arbitration. New York may be reluctant to pay that much to a backup shortstop, who has broken his fibula twice. However, Tejada is coming off a rebound campaign and $3 million isn't way above the norm for a back up middle infielder, so a call on his status may not come until right before the arb deadline.

      Mets' Ruben Tejada: Will not need surgery

      Tejada (leg) will not need to undergo surgery, Mike Vorkunov of NJ.com reports. Tejada suffered a non-displaced fractured right fibula as a result of a hard slide by Chase Utley in Game 2 of the NLDS. Not needing surgery is definitely an encouraging sign, and the club is hopeful that he'll be ready in time for the start of next season.

      Mets SS Ruben Tejada gets three hits in loss

      Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada went 3 for 3 with an RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Braves. The second-half version of Tejada has shown a drastically better batting eye -- he owns a 19:20 BB:K -- and been rewarded for it with a .313 batting average over 147 at-bats. There's still no power or speed in the profile, though, so Tejada's fantasy utility largely remains limited to NL-only formats.
