The 24-year-old has played in 86 games this season. He has sruggled at the plate again this season battting .236/.357/.293 in 259 at-bats. He has two home runs along with 22 RBI's. On Monday, Tejada was hit by a fifth-inning pitch on the left hand. It was swollen, but the shortstop indicated that he did not need X-Rays on his hand. Tejada should be okay as reported by Adam Rubin.
Terry Collins says Ruben Tejada's left hand surprisingly swelled up a lot, but the shortstop seems OK.
