Despite the opportunity, Ruben Tejada hasn't exactly locked up the shortstop spot in Queens. Tejada still isn't working out for the Mets.
Even though Tejada attended an offseason strength/conditioning and nutrition camp in Michigan, Mets management has not been overwhelmed by the shortstop's "new" body. "He looks pretty much the same," one source told The Post on Monday.
Frustrated with Tejada, the Mets still have a strong interest in signing free-agent shortstop Stephen Drew, two sources have told The Post.
They also have shown interest in Seattle's Nick Franklin...Who is out of a position because of the signing of Robinson Cano.
The Mets are still waiting for their price on Drew. They also can trade for Franklin who might demand a pitching prospect.. Their choice...
