Ruben Tejada could get playing time at shortstop during Jon Niese's starts this season.
The reason for that is that Niese has a reputation as a groundball pitcher and they have more confidence in Tejada defensively than they do with Wilmer Flores. It's worth noting that Zack Wheeler also induces a high number of grounders, but it's unclear whether Tejada will also play when he starts. If anything, this shows that they (understandably) don't view Flores as an everyday shortstop and Tejada won't be a forgotten man. Feb 11 - 2:35 PM
