PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Terry Collins will no doubt be pleased with this news: Ruben Tejada checked in on Saturday at the Mets' complex, nine days ahead of the official report date for position players.

Collins had been disappointed last year that Tejada reported on time rather than early.

Also arriving Saturday: Jeurys Familia, Josh Satin and Scott Rice.
