RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for Ruben Tejada.

2016

Tejada suffered a non-displaced fracture of his right fibula during the NLDS, courtesy of a reckless slide from Chase Utley. That play ended his season, and his tenure as a member of the Mets, as he wound up in St. Louis on a one-year deal after Jhonny Peralta suffered a thumb injury that will cost him the first half of the season. At the plate, Tejada's 2015 campaign resembled his previous career bests in 2012. Over the past two seasons, he has been more patient at the plate while also striking out at an increased clip. Tejada has never hit more than five home runs in a season as a professional, nor has he swiped more than five bases at any level since his 2009 stop at Double-A. As the owner of an empty career .255 average, he is not very appealing from a fantasy perspective, even though he is set to be in the lineup most days while Peralta is on the mend.

2015

It seems as though Tejada's days as the Mets' starting shortstop are coming to a close, but it felt like he was constantly on the brink of being replaced last season, and he still managed to make 419 trips to the plate. He has very little power to speak of (seven homers in 1,778 career plate appearances), but Tejada is an ample defender at a premium position. One interesting aspect of his 2014 profile is a significantly improved walk rate, as Tejada drew free passes at an 11.9% clip while carrying an on-base percentage (.342) that ranked third among shortstops with at least 400 plate appearances. Even with that growth, Tejada seems likely to begin the year on the bench, regardless of whether is 2015 campaign begins with a new club or back with the Mets.

2014

Tejada came into camp out of shape and had a nightmarish spring, and things did not get any better when the regular season started. He struggled in the field and at the plate, and he spent nearly the entire summer at the Triple-A level before being brought back up in September. Tejada's rough season led the Mets to look for shortstop help during the offseason, but with the team unable to secure another option, Tejada is ticketed to open 2014 as the team's starting shortstop.

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.
