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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Homers, steals base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejeda went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a stolen base in Saturday's loss to Seattle.

Tejeda notched his second two-hit game and drilled his second career home run -- a 390-foot game-tying shot to left field in the seventh inning -- in the loss. He has been used sparingly this season but has collected four hits in 13 at-bats with two homers and two steals in five contests.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Starts at second base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejeda started at second base and went 0-for-3 in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Astros.

This was Tejeda's first appearance since being called up over the weekend. It will be interesting to see how the Rangers deploy him over the final month. The team will be evaluating its younger talent, and there is room for evaluation at second base with Rougned Odor (eye) on the injured list. Nick Solak is also in the mix at second base while Tejeda could slide in at shortstop in place of veteran Elvis Andrus.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Recalled by Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejeda was recalled by the Rangers on Monday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Tejeda got into the first three games of his big-league career in early August, going 2-for-7 with a homer and a steal. At-bats could be available in the Rangers' infield, with Rougned Odor landing on the injured list with an eye infection.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Optioned to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejeda was optioned to the Rangers' alternate training site Tuesday.

Tejeda saw minimal playing time during his brief stint with the Rangers but went 2-for-7 with a home run, three RBI and one stolen base. While he'll continue working at the alternate training site for now, he could return to the majors to serve as infield depth at some point in 2020.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Hitless Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejeda started at second base Friday and went 0-for-3 in a 4-3 win over the Angels.

Tejeda, who made a splash in his MLB debut Friday, filled in for Rougned Odor for a second straight game. Odor had been unavailable due to an oblique injury, but he returned as the designated hitter Friday. Odor's return suggests Tejada's stay in the starting lineup will end soon. He could see action at shortstop, but the Rangers may be reticent to hand a large role to Tejeda, who had zero experience above High-A prior to 2020.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Highlights in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejeda went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Thursday's 6-4 loss to Oakland.

Tejeda, who never played above High-A before this season, made his MLB debut Thursday, filling in for injured second baseman Rougned Odor (oblique). For a brief moment, Tejeda brought excitement to a listless Rangers lineup that's batting .208 after 11 games. Odor is expected to avoid the injured list, and manager Chris Woodward told T.R. Sullivan of that he's hoping the second baseman can return Friday or Saturday. That suggests Tejada's window is short one, but if he's generating offense, there could be room for him at shortstop where Elvis Andrus is below the Mendoza Line (.195) after 11 games.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Making big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejeda is starting at second base and hitting eighth Thursday against the Athletics, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

Tejeda is set to make his big-league debut in place of the injured Rougned Odor (oblique). The 22-year-old spent the entire 2019 campaign with High-A Down East, slashing .234/.315/.386 with four home runs and nine steals in 158 plate appearances.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Gets big-league call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers recalled Tejeda from their taxi squad Sunday.

Tejeda's prospect sheen has worn off in recent years, but the 22-year-old shortstop will at least give the Rangers a healthy body in the infield with Danny Santana (forearm) on the injured list and Rougned Odor (oblique) listed as day-to-day. The 22-year-old spent the entire 2019 campaign at High-A Down East, slashing .234/.315/.386 with four home runs and nine stolen bases in 158 plate appearances.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Looks healthy in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejeda batted .500 (7-for-14) with a double, a home run, six RBI and six runs scored during the Cactus League.

The 21-year-old Tejeda showed no signs of the shoulder injury that wiped out three months worth of games in 2019. He rocked 19 home runs and stole 11 bases in 2018 and has shown interesting power from the middle infield spot. Tejeda's exhibited swing-and-miss potential at the plate, but the 25/15 upside is there.

Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Singles in first spring AB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tejada (shoulder) singled in his only at-bat Friday in a spring game against the Royals.

Anderson, who missed the final three months of the 2019 season at High-A Down East with a left shoulder subluxation, is at full strength, T.R. Sullivan of reports.
