News: Tejada started at shortstop Tuesday rather than at second base, as had first been reported. Impact: The lineup was flip-flopped, putting Wilmer Flores at second and Tejada at shortstop. Originally, it looked like Tejada would play his first game at second since Sept. 28, 2011, but that proved not to be the case.(RotoWire, )

News: Tejada is starting at second base Tuesday against the A's with Daniel Murphy sitting against Scott Kazmir, Marc Carig of Newsday reports. Impact: After seeing his first start at shortstop in more than a week Sunday, Tejada will start at second base for the first time since Sept. 28, 2011. Tejada is viewed as a backup middle infielder and playing him at second is a way to determine if he can fill that role, since the team already knows he is solid defensively at short.(RotoWire, )

News: Tejada will get a start in one of the Mets' games against the Cubs this weekend. Impact: Tejada lost the job to Wilmer Flores last week and hasn't started since. "He's got to get out there," manager Terry Collins said. "Wilmer's played a week straight now, there's no reason he can't have a day [off] here and there."(RotoWire, )
