Miguel Tejada exits game with calf tightness

Miguel Tejada has average over .300


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2013) Royals infielder Miguel Tejada got another start at second base Saturday in New York.

Tejada, who has impressed with his glove, was even more impressive with his bat Saturday in the extra-inning win.

The former American League MVP went 3 for 4 in the game with three singles and an RBI. He has his batting average up to .304 on the season for the Royals.

Tejada has a seven-game hitting streak going and has hit in nine of his last 10 games. He has six RBI over that stretch.


Miguel Tejada should have more owners


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/1/2013) He's far removed from those ealry-aught glory days, but Royals second baseman Miguel Tejada can still help an AL-only Fantasy team. The 39-year-old had been getting occasional at-bats earlier in the season filling in for Mike Moustakas, but is now the starting second baseman while Chris Getz sits on the disabled list. 

Tejada has a .290 average on the season, with four doubles and three home runs over 124 at-bats. He's started five games in a row, though, and is hitting .353 with four RBI in that span. It's not earth-shaking stuff, but Tejada has second base eligibility and is getting regular playing time -- a combination that usually makes a player an automatic add in AL-only formats. 

While he could get replaced at second by Pedro Ciriaco -- or a healthy Getz/Johnny Giavotella -- Tejada is making the most of his current opportunity and should be owned in more than the 0 percent of leagues in which he can currently claim ownership. 


Miguel Tejada homers in loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2013) Royals infielder Miguel Tejada had his team's only run -- a solo homer off starter Doug Fister in the second inning -- in a 4-1 loss Sunday to the Tigers. Tejada, who was filling in for the injured Chris Getz (knee), finished 1 for 3 with a walk.

Tejada has hit safely in six of his last seven games. He's batting .308 (8 for 26) with a home run and four RBI in that span.


Miguel Tejada believes he can do more


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2013) Royals infielder Miguel Tejada is not complaining about his role, though he would appreciate a little more playing time, the Kansas City Star reports. Tejada feels he has the ability to contribute in a greater way.

"I know how hard I prepare myself," Tejada said, "and I’m used to it. I’m used to playing every day. My body knows how to play every day. I know what I can do if I play every day. I think I can do it. If they gave me the chance to play every day, I think I could do my job. But right now, I’m just going to prepare for whatever comes."

Tejada added: "I understand [younger players] the future of this team. I just came here to do whatever I can do to help the team. Whenever I have the opportunity to play, I want to play wherever they want me to play."

The 39-year-old doubled in his last game and is batting .270 over 74 at-bats with two homers and nine RBI.

Miguel Tejada hits second home run


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2013) Royals third baseman Miguel Tejada hit his second home run of the year Friday against the Angels while drawing a start at third base. He also homered in his last start, which came Monday against the Astros.

Tejada has hit .323/.364/.548 in 31 at-bats for the Royals. He could start to see more playing time if Mike Moustakas can't turn it around at the plate.


Miguel Tejada a very deep AL-only thought


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/7/2013) Imagine a 12-team AL-only Roto league (which actually exists) where the top four free agents are Rick Ankiel, Wilkin Ramirez, Jose Iglesias and Shelley Duncan; only one of those players is currently in the majors. This is the world in which Miguel Tejada is now relevant.

With a nod at third on Tuesday for the Royals, Tejada has two starts in the last three days, with a case for more -- Mike Moustakas is struggling and Chris Getz is hitting just .216 with one home run (he also made a crucial error in Monday's game against the White Sox). Tejada, meanwhile, is hitting .313 in the very small sample size of 16 at-bats. At 39, nobody is expecting him to hit 20 home runs or even bat above .280. But in a deep AL-only league, Tejada's worth the speculation based on his situation alone -- he can play multiple positions and the players ahead of him at two of those positions are batting a combined .206. 

This is deep league speculation, where nothing may come of it after Moustakas catches fire and Getz proves too valuable defensively. But if things go south, Tejada seems to be playing his way into Ned Yost's good graces. 


Miguel Tejada makes team as utility player


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2013) Royals manager Ned Yost told reporters that infielder Miguel Tejada, who came to camp as a non-roster invitee with a minor-league contract, has made the club as a utility player. Tejada is hitting .333/.351/.444 with three RBI in 36 at-bats this spring.

The 38-year-old did not play in the majors last year, but hit .239 in 91 games with San Francisco in 2011, the last time he was in the big leagues.

Royals invite Tejada to camp


(12/31/2012) CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported Monday that the Royals signed infielder Miguel Tejada to a minor-league contract. The deal also includes an invitation to spring training and will be worth $1.1 million if Tejada spends all of 2013 in the majors.

Marlins considering Tejada for 3B


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(12/19/2012) ESPN.com reports that the Marlins have been scouting Miguel Tejada in the Dominican Winter League, as they are viewing him as a potential option for their third base vacancy. Tejeda did not play in the majors in 2012, but he did appear in 36 games for Triple-A Norfolk in the Orioles organization. Earlier this month, the Diamondbacks offered the 38-year-old a minor league contract.
