Pirates Claim Oscar Tejeda, DFA Slaten

The Pirates have claimed infielder/outfielder Oscar Tejeda off waivers from the Red Sox, the team announced.  To make room for Tejeda, Pittsburgh has also designated left-hander Doug Slaten for assignment.

Tejeda, 22, was designated for assignment by Boston following their acquisition of Zach Stewart and Brent Lillibridge earlier this week.  Tejeda split time between designated hitter and left field this season, hitting .262/.294/.396 in 51 Double-A games.

Slaten, 32, appeared in ten games for the Pirates this season.  The left-hander also pitched 25 1/3 innings for Triple-A Indianapolis and allowed just one run with 15 strikeouts and six walks.  Slaten owns a 3.52 ERA in the big leagues with 6.6 K/9 and 4.0 BB/9 in parts of seven big league seasons.
