New York Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada reportedly joined first baseman Ike Davis in a meeting Tuesday night with manager Terry Collins, General Manager Sandy Alderson and assistant GM John Ricco to discuss the possibility of being demoted to the minors, according to a report Wednesday afternoon from Mike Puma of the New York Post. 

The Post reported last week that Davis had already been warned by front office executives about the possibility that he could be sent to Triple A, but Alderson clarified that there's no timetable on the option, saying "we're not there yet." According to the report Wednesday, however, a team official said "we are at that point," and it appears Tejada would join Davis.
