When Will We See Ruben Tejada Again ?

 

I don’t know maybe I’m reaching here but is there anyone else worrying about Ruben Tejada and the length of time it’s taking him to get back from a strained right quad muscle ? Word today from Terry Collins is that Tejada will not participate in his rehab start as the quad is still tender.

The club felt the injury would take a couple of weeks to heal but here we are about 3 week since he hurt himself running to first base and it seems he not close to coming off the DL. I bring this up because yesterday we say Ronny Cedeno come out the game due to cramping in his calf bringing Justin Turner in to play short.

I would never want to question just how injured a player is but there is a difference in being injured and being hurt. Quite frankly when I hear a player shuts it down due to “tenderness” I have to think it raises eyebrows with the front office especially with how well Tejada was performing before getting hurt and add in how much they need his presences on defense with his bat being a bonus.

I don’t want to question Tejada’s pain threshold or his work ethic; I’m just puzzled how a 22 year old is such a slow healer.
