Shortstop Miguel Tejada is once again in the news for all the wrong reasons. MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez is reporting that Tejada has been suspended for the rest of the Dominican Winter League season after he admitted to purchasing shares in the rival Gigantes del Cibao while actively playing for Aguilas Cibaenas.
From a translated version of Dionisio Soldevilla’s article on MLB.com:
Tejada played for Cibao Aguilas in the Dominican Winter League and admitted earlier this month that three years ago bought the 72% stake of the company that ran the franchise for the city of San Francisco de Macoris.
In an unrelated matter, Tejada will also continue to serve the remaining 64 games on his 105-game suspension handed down by Major League Baseball last season after he tested positive twice for Adderall. Tejada failed to renew his exemption, which expired on April 15.
In 167 plate appearances with the Royals in 2013, Tejada posted a .695 OPS. He is currently a free agent.
