Tejada pairs with Mets coach on glove work
NEW YORK -- Mets third-base coach Chip Hale is working with shortstop Ruben Tejada to cut down on fielding errors. Though he's known for his glove more than his bat, Tejada made two miscues Saturday and one Friday.

Manager Terry Collins said that Tejada approached the ball correctly on his two fielding errors Saturday, but he needs to angle his glove better to allow him to throw the ball to the correct base more easily.

"When you're making that turn, when you're making that little arc to go to first base -- he's got his hand in a tough fielding position," Collins said. "Chip's going to take care of that."
