Tejada had previously fractured his fibula in 2013, missing the final two weeks of that season. He reinjured it in Game 2 of the NLDS, when Dodgers infielder Chase Utley -- whom Major League Baseball subsequently suspended -- tumbled into him in an attempt to break up a potential inning-ending double play. Fractured legs typically heal within four to six weeks.
In his best offensive campaign in three years, Tejada hit .261 this season with three home runs and a .688 OPS, starting 94 of his 116 games. He will be arbitration-eligible for the third time this winter, with his salary set to increase to over $2 million for the first time.
