White Sox's Ruben Tejada: Catches on with White Sox
Tejada accepted a minor-league deal with the White Sox on Friday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
He will meet the Triple-A club in Norfolk for a weekend series. Tejada had been playing at Triple-A with the Phillies until being cut in late August. The 31-year-old hit .232/.342/.263 with Lehigh Valley.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Ruben Tejada: Lands MiLB deal with Phillies
Tejada agreed Wednesday with the Phillies on a minor-league contract, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Tejada most recently spent the 2020 season as a member of the Blue Jays' 60-man roster pool, but he never received a call-up to the big leagues. An immediate opportunity at the MLB level won't be available in Philadelphia either, so Tejada will likely have to bide his time at Triple-A Lehigh Valley with the hope of eventually getting a promotion. The 31-year-old infielder owns a .250/.324/.317 slash line over 663 career games in parts of nine seasons in the majors.... See More ... See Less
Ruben Tejada: Let go by Blue Jays
Tejada was released by the Blue Jays on Tuesday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports.
Tejada was included on the Blue Jays' 60-man roster to begin the season, but no major-league opportunity presented itself. The 31-year-old veteran has mainly worked at the Triple-A level over the past several seasons and slashed .326/.404/.471 with six home runs and 42 RBI with Triple-A Syracuse in 2019.... See More ...

Blue Jays' Ruben Tejada: Part of 60-man roster
Tejada will be a part of the Blue Jays' 60-man roster.
Tejada spent the majority of 2019 with Triple-A Syracuse, slashing .326/.404/.471 with six home runs and 42 RBI over 73 games before he was released by the Mets in late August. He was a non-roster invitee for the Blue Jays this spring and went 3-for-18 with five RBI and four runs. The team has young talent in their major-league middle infield heading into 2020, but Tejada could compete for a veteran role with the team once play resumes.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Ruben Tejada: Joins Blue Jays
Tejada signed a minor-league deal that includes an invitation to spring training with the Blue Jays on Friday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
The 30-year-old went hitless in nine plate appearances with the Mets last season, but he spent most of the year at Triple-A and performed well with a .326/.404/.471 slash line in 73 games. Toronto has its future middle infield in the majors with Cavan Biggio and Bo Bichette, but Tejada could carve out a role as a veteran utilityman with a strong showing in spring training....

Mets' Ruben Tejada: Returns to old club on MiLB deal
Tejada signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Sunday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
He'll report to Triple-A Syracuse for now with the hope of receiving a promotion to the big club later in September. Tejada made his first big-league appearance since 2017 in August, going hitless in nine at-bats before the Mets released him a few days ago.... See More ... See Less
Ruben Tejada: Cut loose by New York
Tejada was released by the Mets on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Tejada was designated for assignment Thursday, and after failing to garner any interest while on waivers, he's been cut loose. In 71 games with Syracuse, Tejada slashed .330/.408/.476 with six homers and 38 RBI.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Ruben Tejada: Designated for assigment
Tejada was designated for assignment Thursday.
He had zero hits in nine at-bats over six games with the big-league club. The 29-year-old infielder is unlikely to get claimed on waivers.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Ruben Tejada: Promoted to majors
Tejada had his contract purchased from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports. He's starting at second base and hitting seventh against the Braves, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.
Tejada will join the Mets in place of the injured Jeff McNeil, who landed on the shelf Wednesday with a hamstring injury. The 29-year-old hasn't appeared in the majors since 2017, when he hit just .230 with a .576 OPS in 41 games for Baltimore. He had been raking for Syracuse this season, however, slashing .330/.408/.476 across 304 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Ruben Tejada: Moving to Triple-A
Tejada was promoted to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Tejada got a late start to game action this spring but moves up from Double-A Binghamton after just two games. He's still not on the Mets' 40-man roster, however, so his return to the big leagues doesn't appear imminent.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Ruben Tejada: Assigned to Double-A
Tejada was assigned to Double-A Binghamton on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Tejada joined the Mets organization on a minor-league deal late in spring training but had yet to make his season debut at any level. With no major-league at-bats since 2017 and a .230/.291/.298 line for Triple-A Norfolk in the Orioles system last season, Tejada is unlikely to be anything other than a last-resort option for the Mets this year....

Mets' Ruben Tejada: Goes back to Mets
Tejada agreed to a minor-league contract with the Mets on Saturday.
Tejada rejoins the organization where he spent the first six years of his big-league career. He'll head to extended spring training before attempting to make a case for himself at the Triple-A level. He spent the entirety of last season in the minors and owns a mediocre .251/.325/.318 career line at the major-league level, so it's unlikely he makes a significant impact this season....

Orioles' Ruben Tejada: Heads to minor-league camp
Tejada was reassigned to minor-league camp Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Tejada was a long-shot to grab an active roster spot out of spring training. His .171 batting average in 35 Grapefruit League at-bats essentially put the nail in the coffin. He'll head back to the minors to act as an organizational depth piece for Baltimore.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ruben Tejada: Attending major-league spring training
Tejada will attend Orioles' spring training as a non-roster invitee, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.
Tejada, who played 41 games for Baltimore last season, returned to the team on a minor-league contract. He'll have the chance to compete for a utility role at spring training. During his time with the club in 2017 he hit .230 with a .576 OPS.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ruben Tejada: Re-signs with Orioles
Tejada was re-signed by the Orioles on a minor-league contract, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Tejada spent some time as the Orioles' starting shortstop last season after J.J. Hardy got injured, but hit just .230/.293/.283 with five RBI in 41 games and was ultimately unseated by Tim Beckham after Beckham was acquired from the Rays. He stuck around in a utility role before being designated for assignment to clear room for Ryan Flaherty's activation from the disabled list.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ruben Tejada: Clears waivers
Tejada cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday.
Tejada hasn't seen much big-league action in recent weeks following the acquisition of Tim Beckham at the trade deadline. The 27-year-old made his last start in July, and was clearly the odd man out in the infield once the dust settled. Throughout the course of the 2017 season, Tejada is hitting .230/.293/.283 with five RBI and 17 runs scored in 41 games.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ruben Tejada: Moves down depth chart
Tejada will be moved down the depth chart and into a utility role following Monday's acquisition of shortstop Tim Beckham, Eduardo Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Beckham was the Rays' starting shortstop on Opening Day, and he'll man the spot until J.J. Hardy (wrist) returns. This move pushes Tejada out of regular work, thus making him fairly irrelevant for fantasy purposes.... See More ... See Less
