Pirates Designate Oscar Tejeda For Assignment

The Pirates have designated utility man Oscar Tejeda for assignment, according to Michael Sanserino of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. In a related move, the Bucs have selected first baseman Jeff Clement from Single-A Bradenton.

Tejeda was claimed off of waivers by the Pirates in late June after he was DFA'd in the wake of the Kevin Youkilis trade.  The 22-year-old has hit .253/.293/.380 with eight homers in Double-A this season with most of his time coming at left field.  In previous seasons, Tejeda has seen significant time at shortstop and second base.

Another one of those guys trained by buscoes to run 60yd dashes and hit BP to land a major bonus. Had 1 fair season at A ball and never anything decent since. Poor BB/K rate, poor defense to go along with other poor aspects of his game.

Players like this guy are the reason an IFA draft is needed to shove buscoes out of the picture.
