Tejeda (arm) will bat seventh and play shortstop Saturday against the Astros. An infection kept Tejeda out of the starting lineup for a pair of games, though he was able to appear off the bench Friday. He'll look to improve on his .250/.261/.471 slash line in the final two games of the year.
Tejeda (arm) remains sidelined Friday against Houston. An infection forced Tejeda to be scratched from Thursday's lineup and will cost him at least one more contest. Whether or not he returns before the end of the year remains to be seen. Isiah Kiner-Falefa again starts at shortstop Friday, with Derek Dietrich starting at third.
Tejeda was scratched from Thursday's lineup with a skin infection under his right arm. Isiah Kiner-Falefa will move to shortstop while Sherten Apostel enters the lineup at third base. It's unclear how long this infection will keep Tejeda sidelined.
Tejeda went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Angels. Tejeda's solo homer off Julio Teheran extended the Rangers' lead to 3-0 in the second. The long ball was the infielder's third of the year. Tejeda is hitting .250/.263/.500 across 57 plate appearances on the season. With Elvis Andrus's (back) season possibly over, Tejeda will likely continue to see time at shortstop during the season's final week.
Tejeda went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Friday's 6-2 loss to the Angels. Tejeda made his fifth straight start at shortstop since Elvis Andrus (back) was placed on the injured list. The Rangers are giving him a good look during September, and the 22-year-old has held his own against MLB pitching, sporting a .786 OPS. Despite the modest success, Tejeda is unlikely to be the team's starter at short in 2021. Andrus' declining offense has the organization considering a change, but Tejeda, who never played above High-A before 2020, may not be ready for a full-time gig.
