Davis, Tejada on verge of being demoted

By Kieran Darcy

The Mets are going for three straight wins against their crosstown rivals on Wednesday. But two of their starting infielders may be playing for their jobs.

Reports surfaced earlier Wednesday that Mets brass held a meeting before Tuesday's game with first baseman Ike Davis and shortstop Ruben Tejada in which the players were informed they were on the verge of being demoted to Triple-A. Manager Terry Collins was asked about those reports before Wednesday's game.

"I understand that probably was gonna be asked today," Collins said. "But I will also tell you that when I have a meeting in my office, it stays in my office. If I wanted to broadcast what was being said to players on a daily basis, I'd invite everybody in. I'm gonna leave it at that."
