Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Sent down by Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Not in Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Remains out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Sits amid strikeout spree
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Makes second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Hitless in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Called up Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Makes spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Sidelined with elbow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 25, 2020 04:52 PM
Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Remains on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 24, 2020 05:12 PM
Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Scratched with skin infection
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Goes deep in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Doubles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 13, 2020 12:16 PM
Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Returns to lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejeda (illness) is starting at shortstop and batting sixth Sunday against the A's.

With Elvis Andrus landing on the injured list Saturday with a back strain, Tejeda could be the Rangers' everyday shortstop for the remainder of the season. He has showcased his lack of upper-level experience by hitting .194 in 103 at-bats, but his 13.5 percent strikeout rate and 7.2 percent walk rate have been better than expected. Tejeda has also showcased his power and speed by hitting three home runs and stealing three bases.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Out with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejeda (illness) remains out of the lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against Oakland, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

It's seemingly not a COVID-19-related illness, as he hasn't been placed on the injured list and the games have been able to go forward. Isiah Kiner-Falefa will slide to shortstop for the nightcap, with Sherten Apostel making his big-league debut at third base.

September 12, 2020 04:08 PM
Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Not starting afternoon game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejeda is not in the lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against Oakland.

Tejeda has been given a near-everyday role for the Rangers over the past week, and he's responded quite well, hitting .290/.313/.581 with three steals in 32 plate appearances. Elvis Andrus will be the shortstop for Saturday's first game, but Tejeda could return to the position for the nightcap.

September 11, 2020 11:16 AM
Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Offensive star in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejeda went 2-for-3 with a triple, an RBI and a stolen base in Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Angels.

Tejeda, making his fifth start in the last six games, legged out his first triple and fourth extra-base hit among seven base knocks overall. He continues to get regular at-bats even as both Rougned Odor and Elvis Andrus have returned from injury.

September 7, 2020 01:44 PM
Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejeda will hit the bench Monday against the Mariners.

Tejeda hits the bench in favor of Elvis Andrus after starting two straight games. The rookie has gone just 4-for-17 at the plate through his first six big-league games, though he's already homered twice and stolen a pair of bases.
