Quintanilla fell into significant playing time with the Mets last season, as starting shortstop Ruben Tejada was basically a forgotten man following a quad injury in May. However, the 32-year-old did next to nothing with the opportunity, hitting just .222/.306/.283 over 359 plate appearances while rating below average defensively.
The Mets have expressed confidence this winter in giving Tejada another chance at the starting gig, though it’s still possible they’ll sign Stephen Drew. Quintanilla is fine depth to have at Triple-A, but if he winds up playing a big role again in 2014, that will likely mean that something has gone very wrong.
