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.
