Giants reach one-year, $6.5M deal with Miguel Tejada

Brian Sabean strikes again.

According to Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes, the Giants have agreed to a one-year, $6.5 million contract with veteran infielder Miguel Tejada.  The contract will also include about $500,000 in pefromance-based bonuses.

Tejada no longer has good range at shortstop and batted just .269/.312/.381 over the course of the 2010 season.  Paired with hefty third baseman Pablo Sandoval, the left side of San Francisco’s infield will have some serious holes next year.

The Giants had to scramble this winter after losing both Edgar Renteria and Juan Uribe, but this looks to be irresponsible spending.

Sabean and Co. are probably done looking into trading for Rays shortstop Jason Bartlett.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will be on the team’s World Series roster.

Seager, 23, played in the NLDS but was left off the NLCS roster due to a lower back injury suffered in Game 3 against the Diamondbacks. He had three hits, including a triple, in 15 plate appearances in that series. During the regular season, Seager hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 home runs, 77 RBI, and 85 runs scored across 613 PA.

Charlie Culberson and Chris Taylor handled shortstop while Seager was absent. Both players were among the Dodgers’ best performers in the NLCS. With Seager back in the fold, Taylor will play mostly center field and Culberson will return to his bench role.
