According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY, Wilmer Flores will start at shortstop for a third time in spring training on Tuesday. Manager Terry Collins suggested that is unrelated to Ruben Tejada's poor play, which should raise a couple of eyebrows - if the Mets are going to make a move soon.
Tejada went 1-for-3 with two strikeouts Monday in a 10-7 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. He is now hitting .120 (3-for-25) this spring training.
Collins iterated that he wants to see his agility in action at shortstop as Flores participated in a fitness camp this winter which worked on his flexibility and coordination.
