Mets Place Shortstop Tejada on Disabled List With Quad Strain

May 30 (Bloomberg) -- New York Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada, whose .209 batting average ranks 160th of 171 Major League Baseball players, was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right quad strain.

The Mets called up Omar Quintanilla from Triple-A Las Vegas of the Pacific Coast League to take Tejada’s roster spot, the team said in a news release.

Tejada, 23, and first baseman Ike Davis, whose .160 batting average ranks 169th among qualified major-league hitters, both are in jeopardy of being demoted, CBS Sports reported yesterday, citing unidentified people close to the situation.

Quintanilla, a 31-year-old who was hitting .333 with two home runs and 18 runs batted in during 47 minor-league games, will be available tonight at Yankee Stadium when the Mets try to complete a four-game sweep of the cross-town Yankees.

Quintanilla has a .220 batting average in 292 major-league games for the Mets, Baltimore Orioles, Texas Rangers and Colorado Rockies.

The Mets are 21-29, nine games behind the division-leading Atlanta Braves in the National League East, and have won their last four games.
