Yankees Trade IF Ruben Tejeda to Baltimore

The New York Yankees have traded minor league infielder Rubén Tejada to the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for cash considerations the team announced today.  Tejeda, 27, was signed by the Yankees as a minor league free agent this past offseason and has been solid for the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders.

In 37 games in Triple-A this season he has hit .269/.345/.462. Over the month of April, he was one of the best hitters on the team, hitting .360/.452/.600 over 16 games in the first month of the season. He cooled off in May when he hit .211/.268/.342 over 20 games.

Tejeda’s playing time was going to be cut thanks to the recent arrival of Gleyber Torres. Combined with Tyler Wade and Donovan Solano on the team there was limited space for him.
