Ruben Tejada has avoided arbitration by settling with the Mets for a $1.1 million salary for the upcoming season, a source tells ESPNNewYork.com.

Tejada, who was eligible for arbitration for the first time, currently is projected to be the starting shortstop.

Tejada's settlement leaves six cases still unresolved -- with Daniel Murphy, Ike Davis, Bobby Parnell, Dillon Gee, Lucas Duda and Eric Young Jr. The sides will exchange figures Friday if there is no settlement before then.
