When a record 5 GDP leading seasons just ain’t enough!
Though he hasn’t played in the majors since Aug. 30, 2011, Miguel Tejada has earned a spot on the opening day roster for the Kansas City Royals.
Tejada, 38, paved the way for his comeback with a huge spring. He hit .333/.351/.444 with four doubles in 37 plate appearances for the Royals. He also played in the World Baseball Classic for the Dominican Republic, hitting .316/.350/.368 with a double in 20 plate appearances.
Tejada is a six-time All-Star and won the 2002 AL MVP. He last saw major-league action in 2011 for the Giants, hitting .239/.270/.326 with four homers and 26 RBI in 343 plate appearances.

While police officers on the scene say the house had a musty smell of urine and fecal material, all of the utility players appear to have been well-fed and cared for. Donald Leius, director of the Major League Players Association, a non-profit group dedicated to finding homes for players, is not surprised. “We could always count on Dayton to help. Finding a home for all our players can be difficult, but Dayton specialized in the hard cases, the ones nobody else wanted. Whenever we would get a little full here at our shelter, we would call Dayton in to take a look. He specifically asked for the ones with little to no power and the ones who nobody else had looked at. Don’t be too hard on him. He’s a good guy.”
Neighbors aren’t as quick to praise Moore. “Frankly, it’s a little creepy.” said Jean Patek, who lived across the street from Moore. “He would spend all night long sitting on the swing on his front porch with a bunch of utility players running around in his front yard. He would then stare at anybody who walked by, not saying anything. Where did he get them all? It just didn’t seem right.”

Pittsburgh made a pair of minor trades, acquiring right-hander Zach Stewart from the Red Sox for a player to be named later and getting right-hander Vin Mazzaro and first baseman Clint Robinson from the Royals for minor leaguer pitchers Luis Santos and Luis Rico.
Seems like a decent set of lottery tickets, at a relatively low cost. A fair number of Pirates fans have been eyeballing Robinson for a while now.
