TAMPA, FL. (BaseballStL) - Shortstop Ruben Tejada left the Cardinals’ final Spring Training Thursday game with a left quad strain.

The injury appeared to take place in the second inning while the former Met was running out a ground ball. He did not run out to play in the field in the bottom of the second.

The newest Cardinal joined the club on March 19 after Jhonny Peralta became sidelined with a torn thumb ligament.

If Tejada is unable to play when the season begins, Jedd Gyorko and Greg Garcia become stop gap options.
