Mets may be working a trade

The Mets may have a trade working, as prospects Ruben Tejada and Fernando Martinez were late scratches from Triple-A Buffalo's lineup on Friday.

When asked by Andy Martino of the New York Daily News about the scratches, Mets general manager Omar Minaya said, "I've got nothing to say about that. We'll see."

The team could be calling up the two, or they may have worked out a trade.

The Mets are 2-4 since last Saturday's trade deadline.

Tejada, a second baseman, is hitting .280/.329/.344 with a home run and 16 RBI. Martinez, an outfielder, is hitting .255/.321/.466 with 12 home runs and 33 RBI.

UPDATE: ESPNNewYork.com's Adam Rubin quotes two sources as indicating the Mets have a trade in place with the Mariners. Rubin speculates Martinez could be going to Seattle, while Tejada could be a call-up if the team is able to move second baseman Luis Castillo.

Reyes scratched from Mets' lineup

The Mets scratched Jose Reyes from Wednesday's Puerto Rican farewell matchup with the Marlins at Hiram Bithorn Stadium with a stiff lower back, the Newark Star-Ledger 's Andy McCullough reports .

McCullough writes Reyes appeared to injure himself during batting practice.

Angel Pagan is still out of the Mets' lineup. Manager Jerry Manuel told reporters he wanted to see how the switch-hitter looked batting left-handed during batting practice before deciding if Pagan would play Thursday at Washington.

Ruben Tejada will play short for the Mets tonight and Jesus Feliciano is leading off against Florida.

Nice running, rook

It's tough enough to be a rookie in a veteran clubhouse, and hitting into a triple play is a good way to put a razzing target on your back.

Mets infielder Ruben Tejada hit into the most routine-looking triple play you'll ever see (video here ) on Thursday night, hitting the ball sharply to third for an around-the-horn play, the eighth triple play turned in Padres history. The play at first base wan't even close.

"I've been giving him the hardest time," catcher Rod Barajas told the New York Daily News . "I told him, 'I'm the slowest guy in baseball and I've never hit into a triple play.'"

Luckily for Tejada, the Mets were able to laugh about the play, since it turned out to be harmless in the Mets' 3-0 victory.
