Mets put Tejada on disabled list with quad injury
NEW YORK (AP)
Tejada limped off the field with two outs in the bottom of the ninth Thursday after getting hurt chasing a foul fly down the left-field line. He had a leadoff single in a five-run first, but also had a mental lapse in the field that allowed the Yankees to score twice in the sixth.
The Mets selected the contract of infielder Omar Quintanilla from Triple-A Las Vegas of the Pacific Coast League and made space on their 40-man roster by transferring reliever Frank Francisco from the 25- to the 60-day disabled list.
Quintanilla is the starting shortstop and batting ninth.
