Tejada, 26, now seems likely to move onto his fourth organization of the year. He was tendered a contract by the Mets, but ended up being released late in the spring before catching on with the Cardinals. That relationship didn’t last long, though, and Tejada ultimately went to San Francisco on a minor league deal.
It’s not hard to see why Tejada hasn’t stuck in the majors in 2016, as he is carrying a .167/.247/.242 batting line in 78 plate appearances. Of course, he has been much more useful than that in the past, as he has rated as a slightly below average hitter and fielder for most of his career. It’s not an exciting profile, but it makes Tejada a sturdy-enough utility infielder when he’s in typical form.
