Mets' Tejada Latest Injury Victim

"If you were a really optimistic Mets fan — perhaps an oxymoron at this point — you might have thought the ability to stay healthy was one bright spot regarding the team's inexpensive and relatively youthful roster.

So far, that hasn't worked out, either.

Ruben Tejada is among the latest casualties, going down with a strained left groin while fielding a slow ground ball during an infield drill prior to yesterday's 7-1 loss to the Cardinals.

"It's a little bit tight," said Tejada, who was replaced by Omar Quintanilla, who went 1-for-22 for the Rangers last season. "I've got to take care of that.""
