The Mets sent shortstop Ruben Tejada back to Triple-A Buffalo after last night’s win against the Washington Nationals. Tejada got his first career major league hit in the game as well.
Tejada played in 3 games, going 1 for 6. He looks like he’s got some skills in the field and his stroke at the plate is solid as well, especially for a 20 year-old. Although it’s too bad he’s leaving, I have a feeling that we’ll be seeing more of him this season.
The good news is that Tejada leaving the active roster makes room for Jose Reyes to return today. I was hoping thinking that Luis Castillo might go on the disabled list to make room for Reyes so Tejada could stick around.
