Tejada was sent flying into the air and upended after the brutal late hit by Utley and was in a lot of pain. The game was delayed for 17 minutes and Wilmer Flores came in to replace Tejada.
To add insult to injury, after being initially ruled out by the second base umpire, the Dodgers challenged the call and Utley was ruled safe even though he never actually touched the bag.
The Mets are announcing that x-rays revealed Tejada suffered a fractured right fibula. Big blow for the Mets and Tejada who has ramped his game up over the last three months of the season.
Terry Collins told reporters that Juan Uribe will not be an option to replace Tejada as he still hasn’t begun baseball activities.
