SAN FRANCISCO -- Matt den Dekker exclusively has led off for the Mets this past week against right-handed pitching. But things could change soon.

Terry Collins said Saturday that coaches have kicked around the idea of using Ruben Tejada in the leadoff spot.

Tejada is hitting .424 (14-for-33) with two homers and six RBIs over his past 10 games.
