New York Mets infielder Ruben Tejada went 2-for-3 with three RBIs in Sunday's spring training win amid uncertainty regarding his role going forward with the team.
The Mets have Neil Walker as the likely starting second baseman, Wilmer Flores a likely bench player and players like Matt Reynolds and Gavin Cecchini in the minors who are healthy, which would give the Mets flexibility to trade Tejada.
"I can't make the decision here," Tejada told ESPN New York's Adam Rubin after Sunday's 11-0 win over the Miami Marlins. "My mentality here is only to stay focused and do my job. They know what they have to do."
On Sunday, Tejada started at second base while Reynolds started at shortstop. Tejada hit a two-run double in the second inning and an RBI triple in the fourth inning. He has a .278 batting average in spring training so far.
"I'm working on staying in the middle of the field," Tejada said. "... I have, like, 15 at-bats right now. I feel really good right now. I have to keep working the same way and keep it going."
