RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Tejada continues to present limited upside at the plate, but has proven capable of being a league average defensive player at a premium position, which should be good enough to earn him another 450-500 plate appearances for the Mets in 2013. He has minimal power (career .063 ISO), and even when he manages to get on base (.333 OBP last season), Tejada is rarely a threat to run despite the fact that the majority of his 2012 at-bats came from the leadoff spot.

2012

Tejada opened 2011 at Triple-A Buffalo, playing shortstop to prepare for a possible switch there for 2012 if Jose Reyes left town. Tejada was promoted in May, seeing time both at shortstop and second base, before landing back in the minors for a month, only to get promoted again for the balance of the year. With Reyes now in Miami, Tejada will open 2012 as the Mets' starting shortstop. Don't look for much power from him, as he has a weak ISO, but he showed improvement at the plate as 2011 wore on and could provide some a decent batting average with a useful runs scored count.

2011

With Jose Reyes out due to hyperthyroidism, Tejada opened the year as the Mets' starting shortstop but was sent down to the minors after a week. Tejada played well enough in the minors to get another promotion, seeing time at second base, but again struggled in the majors. He has decent plate discipline and a good glove but doesn't have much raw power. GM Sandy Alderson has indicated that Daniel Murphy and Luis Castillo may battle for the Mets' second base job this spring, leaving Tejada as the odd man out. In addition, Mets management believes that Tejada needs a full year at Triple-A, so barring injury it would be surprising to see him up with the big league club in 2011.
