Mets' Ruben Tejada: Returns to old club on MiLB deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Ruben Tejada: Cut loose by New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Ruben Tejada: Designated for assigment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Ruben Tejada: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Ruben Tejada: Moving to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Ruben Tejada: Assigned to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Orioles' Ruben Tejada: Attending major-league spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Orioles' Ruben Tejada: Re-signs with Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Orioles' Ruben Tejada: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Orioles' Ruben Tejada: Moves down depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Orioles' Ruben Tejada: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejada is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs.

The Orioles are giving regular second baseman Jonathan Schoop a rare look at shortstop Sunday, so Tejada will find himself on the bench for the first time in the series. Unless Schoop proves to be a quick study at the position, Tejada should be in line for regular starts at shortstop until J.J. Hardy (wrist, rib) is cleared to return from the 10-day disabled list.

Orioles' Ruben Tejada: Out of lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejada is not starting Saturday's matchup against the Twins, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

The Orioles continue to search for answers in the middle infield and Tejada's absence for three of the past five games indicates he may be on the outside looking in. Jonathan Schoop will move over from second to make his first major-league start at shortstop, enabling Johnny Giavotella to take over at the keystone.

Orioles' Ruben Tejada: Cedes Thursday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejada is not in the lineup Thursday against the Twins, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Tejada is hitting just north of the Mendoza Line this season, and although he seems to be the primary option at shortstop for Baltimore at the moment, his poor hitting line will likely lead to a good number of days off. Thursday is one of those days, with Paul Janish filling in for him.

Orioles' Ruben Tejada: Hits bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejada is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Brewers.

Relative to the norm, Tejada has heated up at the plate with five hits over the last five games, which is likely good enough to secure him the primary starting gig at shortstop for now. However, he'll still likely give way to Paul Janish a couple times each week, with Tuesday's game representing one of those occasions.

Orioles' Ruben Tejada: Receives fourth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejada will start at shortstop and bat eighth Sunday against the Rays.

It appeared Tejada had ceded the starting shortstop job to Paul Janish after being limited to a bench role for four straight games, but manager Buck Showalter has since decided to turn the position back over to the veteran. Tejada will pick up his fourth straight start Sunday after recording his third two-hit performance of the season a day earlier while Janish hits the bench once again.

Orioles' Ruben Tejada: Passed up on depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejada is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

With Tejada riding the pine for the fourth consecutive contest, it appears safe to conclude that Paul Janish has unseated him as the Orioles' primary shortstop while J.J. Hardy (wrist) is sidelined. With six hits in 33 at-bats (.182 average) on the season, Tejada won't offer much fantasy upside even if he settles back into an everyday role down the line.

June 25, 2017 05:36 PM
Orioles' Ruben Tejada: Out of lineup again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejada is not in Sunday's lineup, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

There is no concern of any injury for Tejada, but Paul Janish will fill in at shortstop for the second straight game against the Rays. Tejada has been in the midst of a slump at the plate but should return to the lineup for Tuesday's contest following an off-day Monday.

June 24, 2017 06:00 PM
Orioles' Ruben Tejada: Gets breather Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejada isn't in Saturday's lineup against the Rays, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Tejada has struggled at the dish lately, collecting just one hit in 16 at-bats over his last eight games. He'll get a day to clear his head, while Paul Janish will take over at shortstop and bat ninth for the Orioles.
