News: Tejada agreed to a one-year, $1.88 million contract with the Mets on Friday, avoiding arbitration, ESPNNewYork.com reports.
Impact: Manager Terry Collins stuck by Tejada at short for most of the 2014 season, but the skipper's patience eventually wore thin as Tejada continued to struggle at the dish, and the team moved on to Wilmer Flores in August. The 25-year-old Tejada is skilled in the field, but those abilities likely won't be enough to earn him regular time to begin 2015.

News: Tejada, who originally was expected to be be non-tendered by the Mets, may now be offered a contract by the team, the NY Post reports.
Impact: Tejada made $1.1 million in 2014 and is eligible for salary arbitration, which may take him up to $1.7 million. He is expected to be tendered due to the lack of clarity at shortstop for New York, making him a possible back up at that position as well as maybe second base.
