Tejada had his contract purchased from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports. He's starting at second base and hitting seventh against the Braves, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.

Tejada will join the Mets in place of the injured Jeff McNeil, who landed on the shelf Wednesday with a hamstring injury. The 29-year-old hasn't appeared in the majors since 2017, when he hit just .230 with a .576 OPS in 41 games for Baltimore. He had been raking for Syracuse this season, however, slashing .330/.408/.476 across 304 plate appearances.
