Anderson Tejeda: Released by Cardinals
Tejeda was released by the Cardinals on Tuesday.
Tejeda is just 23 years old and was once a moderately interesting prospect, but he's struggled to a .220/.245/.385 line in 94 MLB plate appearances, striking out 40 times to go with just three walks. He hit .194/.266/.368 with a 41.5 percent strikeout rate in 79 games in the upper minors last season.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Anderson Tejeda: Sent to minors camp
The Cardinals reassigned Tejeda to minor-league camp Wednesday.
Tejeda joined the Cardinals on a minor-league deal earlier in the offseason after he appeared in 28 MLB games with the Rangers over the past two years while compiling a .220/.245/.385 slash line to go with three home runs and five stolen bases across 94 plate appearances. The 23-year-old was vying for a utility infield role on the Cardinals' Opening Day roster, but he'll instead head to Triple-A Memphis to begin the 2022 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Anderson Tejeda: Signs minor-league deal
Tejeda signed a minor-league contract with the Cardinals on Thursday.
Tejeda became a free agent in early November after being outrighted by the Rangers, but he'll now land with another organization. The 23-year-old appeared in five major-league games last year and will serve as a non-roster invitee this spring.... See More ... See Less
Anderson Tejeda: Becomes free agent
Tejeda was outrighted off the Rangers' 40-man roster and became a minor-league free agent Friday, independent baseball journalist Jeff Wilson reports.
Tejeda appeared in five big-league games in April but spent the rest of the year in the minors. He's still just 23 years old and was once a fairly interesting prospect, which could earn him some attention on the open market, but his .194/.266/.368 slash line and 41.5 percent strikeout rate in the minors this season may scare away potential suitors....

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Sent down by Rangers
Tejeda was optioned to the Rangers' alternate training site Saturday.
Tejeda joined the major-league roster while Brock Holt (hamstring) was sidelined, but he'll return to the team's alternate training site after Holt was reinstated from the 10-day IL on Saturday. Tejeda appeared in five games for the Rangers and went 1-for-16 with a run, one stolen base and 10 strikeouts. Holt should now serve on the strong side of a platoon at third base while Charlie Culberson starts against southpaws.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Not in Thursday's lineup
Tejeda isn't starting Thursday's game against the Rays.
The Rangers are facing yet another southpaw (Rich Hill) on Thursday, so Tejeda will retreat to the bench for a third straight contest. Charlie Culberson will start at third base, batting seventh.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Remains out of lineup
Tejeda isn't starting Wednesday against the Rays, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports.
Tejeda will take a seat for a second straight game after he struck out five times in his last seven at-bats. Charlie Culberson will start at third base and bat eighth against left-hander Josh Fleming on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Sits amid strikeout spree
Tejeda is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Rays.
He's gone 1-for-13 with eight strikeouts in his first four games since getting promoted from the alternate site. Charlie Culberson will start at third base and hit ninth against lefty Ryan Yarbrough.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Makes second straight start
Tejeda started at third base and went 1-for-3 with a walk and stolen base in Saturday's 7-4 loss to San Diego.
Tejeda has started at third base in the two games since his call-up, both coming against right-handed starters. He's taking up the lefty portion of a third-base platoon that had been filled by Brock Holt until he landed on the injured list with a hamstring injury. Charlie Culberson is the righty hitter in that platoon. Tejeda possesses a combination of pop and speed, but the 22-year-old prospect may be overmatched by MLB pitching.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Hitless in season debut
Tejeda started at third base and went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts in Friday's 3-0 loss to the Padres.
It was a continuation of the profile Tejeda showed last season when he struck out 30 times in 75 at-bats (39.0 K%) while making his MLB debut for the Rangers. He was called up Friday after the Rangers placed Brock Holt (hamstring) the injured list. The 22-year-old infielder took Holt's spot at third base, indicating he will be the left-handed component of a hot-corner platoon with righty-hitting Charlie Culberson. It should be noted that Tejeda, a middling prospect, had never hit above High-A before joining the Rangers in 2020.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Called up Friday
Tejeda was recalled from the Rangers' alternate training site and will start at third base Friday against the Padres.
He takes the place of Brock Holt, who landed on the injured list with a hamstring strain in a corresponding move. Tejeda has some serious swing-and-miss issues, but he also has a quick bat and the speed to steal double-digit bases, so he could provide some cheap power and speed in deeper leagues. Tejeda will compete with Charlie Culberson for playing time at third base and will also serve as a backup option at second base and shortstop.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Sent to minors
Tejeda was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.
Tejeda appeared in 23 games as a rookie last season, hitting a lopsided .253/.273/.453 and striking out in 39.0 percent of his plate appearances while walking in just 2.6 percent. He previously hadn't played a game above High-A, so it's no surprise the Rangers believe he still needs to work on some things in the upper minors before returning to the big leagues.... See More ...

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Makes spring debut
Tejeda (elbow) entered Tuesday's spring game against Cleveland in the sixth inning and went 1-for-2 with a double.
Tejeda replaced Isiah Kiner-Falefa at shortstop in what was his first Cactus League appearance. He had been slowed by an infection in the elbow but is no longer under any restrictions, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports. Tejeda made his MLB debut in the shortened 2020 season despite never having played above the High-A level, but he's expected to start this season in the minors.... See More ... See Less

Tejeda is currently unavailable due to elbow inflammation, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports.
Tejeda, who has not yet appeared in a spring game, is expected to miss a few more days, although the team has no timetable for a return. Tejeda entered spring training with a shot at winning a roster spot in an infield that's undergone churn since 2020.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Back in action
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.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Remains on bench
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.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Scratched with skin infection

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.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Goes deep in win
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.... See More ... See Less
