Terry Collins Very Upset After Learning Tejada Is Out With Groin Strain
Terry Collins showed some “signs of frustration” today and was “visibly upset” according to several reports after he learned that Ruben Tejada had been scratched from this afternoon’s game with an apparent groin injury.
Mike Puma of the NY Post, reported that it “pushed the Mets manager over the edge.”
A visibly irritated Collins said: “Shocker. It’s not serious. It doesn’t have to be here. You need an aspirin, you’re off for the day.”
“We’ve got three weeks from Wednesday [until the Mets break camp], we’ve got a lot of time,” Collins said. “I’m just getting tired of going in the training room, where I’ve got to sweat to see who can walk out of there. That’s all.”
The Mets now have 11 of the 54 players that are in camp dealing with a wide variety of injuries with the vast majority being muscular ailments. Some of the players like Lucas Duda (back) and Anders Torres (glute) recently started playing games again.
