Tejada left Friday's game after being hit on the left arm by a pitch, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

Eric Campbell came into the game to man third base after Tejada was drilled in the bottom of the fourth inning. Consider him day-to-day until more information becomes available.

Tejada could be the Mets' primary shortstop once Daniel Murphy is activated from the DL, ESPN New York's Adam Rubin reports.

Wilmer Flores appears headed for second base once Murphy is activated, which could happen in the near future. This will allow Tejada to continue to see everyday at-bats, although he remains a low-end fantasy option.

Tejada (ankle) is out of Sunday's lineup against the Braves, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

Tejada injured his ankle on a slide Saturday, and it will cost him Sunday's contest as well. As a result, Eric Campbell will receive the start at third base and bat eighth for the Mets in his place. With the club off again Monday, a return to the lineup Tuesday seems possible if nothing comes through indicating the injury is serious.

Tejada twisted his ankle while absorbing a slide at third base, Adam Rubin of ESPN.com reports.

Tejada was able to remain in the game, which is a good sign for his status in Sunday's series finale. If Tejada has to miss any time, Eric Campbell could take the playing time.

Tejada has been activated from the paternity list and will start at third base Sunday against the Braves, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

Tejada has been unavailable to the Mets since Thursday due to the birth of his child, but will return to make his eighth start of the season at the hot corner. A corresponding move for his activation has yet to be announced.

Tejada (elbow) was placed on the paternity list Thursday as his girlfriend gave birth to a baby girl.

Tejada's spot was taken by Dilson Herrera, who was activated off the disabled list. Tejada will be out 3-7 days and likely will play third base when he returns with Herrera sliding in at second.

Tejada and Daniel Murphy will switch positions until David Wright (back) returns, making Tejada the Mets' regular second baseman, Mike Puma of the NY Post reports.

Tejada has already made seven appearances (five starts) at the keystone this season, and he'll likely reach double-digits soon enough. He's also made eight appearances apiece at third base and shortstop, after strictly working as a shortstop from 2012 to 2014.

Tejada went 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored Monday against the Padres.

He played third base again and batted second, continuing a recent hot streak that's seen Tejada rack up eight hits in the last four games, including doubles in three straight. With his lack of both power and speed, not to mention his career .254 batting average, Tejada can't be counted on to keep this up, but he's in line to enjoy regular action at third for the time being.

Tejada got another start at third base Saturday, going 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI.

That's back to back two-hit games for Tejada, who's staking a modest claim to regular at-bats at the hot corner. His .245/.344/.377 slash line on the season isn't great, but it's better than any of the Mets' other current options right now.
