Now Commenting On:

In Monday's game, Ruben Tejada robbed Yadier Molina of a hit with a diving stop in the fourth inning. He started a double play in the fifth inning, diving to his left to stop a potential single >> Watch here.

Tejada is hitting just .204, despite going 1-for-3 in the game.

“I think Ruben’s starting to get going defensively,” Terry Collins said Monday. “I thought he’s handled himself very well. I think Ruben, as we get into the summer, is going to be the guy we knew a couple years ago.”

That said, Omar Quintanilla is starting at shortstop and batting eighth in Tuesday's lineup (Mets, Apr. 22).
