Miguel Tejada 2B/3B MIA 6 Months
Marlins signed INF Miguel Tejada to a minor league contract.
The agreement was first reported last week by Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes and then confirmed Monday morning by CBS Sports' Jon Heyman. Tejada batted just .288/.317/.378 in 167 plate appearances last summer for the Royals before taking a 105-game suspension for a third positive amphetamines test. The 39-year-old still has games left to serve on that sentence and seems doubtful to make a positive impact in Miami.

Tejada, 39, batted .288/.317/.378 last season for the Royals before he was injured and then suspended for testing positive for amphetamines. He still has to serve the final 64 games of his 105-game suspension. Tejada will give the Marlins some infield depth once the suspension is up.

If he latches on elsewhere, he'll have to sit out the first 64 games of the 2014 season.

Miguel Tejada went 2-for-2 off the bench and scored the winning run for the Royals against the Tigers on Wednesday.
Tejada still isn't playing very much -- this was just his third appearance in June -- even though he's been one of the Royals' most productive players in his limited action. He's batting .333 with two homers in 51 at-bats for the season. Meanwhile, the guys ahead of him at second, third and short on the depth chart have all been terrible of late.
