Goodbye Miguel: Orioles Trade Tejada Again 10

Posted on July 29, 2010 by Dean Hybl

Tejada struggled at third base for the Orioles.

For the second time in three years, the Baltimore Orioles have traded veteran infielder Miguel Tejada. This time the O’s dealt Tejada to San Diego for minor league pitcher Wynn Pelzer.

Tejada leaves a team that has the worst record in baseball and is 33 games out of first place for a squad that is currently leading their division and looking to reach the playoffs for the first time since the 2006 season.

After playing third base for the Orioles this season, the Padres expect Tejada to see action at both third base and his natural position of shortstop.

Offensively, Tejada has struggled at times this season hitting only .269 with seven home runs and 39 RBI. He is a career .288 hitter with 292 home runs and 1,224 RBI.

After playing in the American League for his first 11 major league seasons, Tejada was traded by the Orioles to the Houston Astros prior to the 2008 season and hit .298 with 27 home runs and 152 RBI on his two seasons with the Astros. Read the rest of this entry →
