Tejada will start at shortstop and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Indians.

At least in the short term, Tejada appears set to pick up everyday at-bats at shortstop following the news that J.J. Hardy (wrist) won't be able to resume baseball activities for at least 4-to-6 weeks. As the owner of a career .326 on-base percentage, and with little semblance of pop or speed, Tejada doesn't project to offer much fantasy value in spite of the elevated role, especially while he bats at the bottom of the order.
