• Shortstop Ruben Tejada collected four hits in an extended spring game Tuesday, according to manager Terry Collins. Tejada, who has been on the disabled list since May 7 with a strained right calf, could return to the Mets as soon as this weekend.

But Johnson insisted he is well enough to catch Wednesday, should Collins start him behind the plate as expected.
