Analysis: The 26-year-old Tejada figured to be the starter in place of Jhonny Peralta, who is recovering from surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb. Rookie Aledmys Diaz and Jedd Gyorko have both played well, in the field and at the plate, and Garcia also started at shortstop.

Tejada will receive $491,803, which is 30 days' termination pay, rather than the $3 million salary under the contract he agreed to on Jan. 15.
Analysis: Tejada signed with the Mets in 2006 and spent parts of six big league seasons with New York. But after the Mets offered him a contract on Dec. 2, they signed free-agent shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera and acquired second baseman Neil Walker from Pittsburgh. With Wilmer Flores also on the roster, Tejada's future with the team became uncertain. He hit .261 with 23 doubles, three homers and 28 RBIs last year.
