Baserunning not in plan for Tejada's rehab
NEW YORK -- Any hope that injured shortstop Ruben Tejada would play in a rehab game Monday in Port St. Lucie, Fla., is out the window after a baserunning session Friday did not go as well as the Mets hoped.

Tejada will continue to rehab his strained right quadriceps Monday by fielding ground balls and taking some swings, but manager Terry Collins said he will not run the bases.

Tejada hit .305 through 27 games before landing on the disabled list May 7, and there was once a hope he could rejoin the Mets as early as this weekend. Collins insisted the baserunning session was not a setback, though.

"It didn't heal as fast as I had hoped, but that's what every manager wants is a guy to get well fast," Collins said. "Any time you have a strained muscle, it may take three weeks. We were hoping we'd get him back faster, but it looks like it's going to have to run its course."
