Future Watch: Anderson Tejeda Rookie Baseball Cards, Rangers

Future Watch: Anderson Tejeda Rookie Baseball Cards, RangersFuture Watch: Anderson Tejeda Rookie Baseball Cards, RangersAnderson Tejeda was signed by the Texas Rangers as an undrafted, amateur free agent in 2014. With the ability to play second, shortstop or third base, there was a good chance he’d be able to make it to the big leagues someday.

In 2015 and 2016 he played for the Dominican Rangers. It was in the Dominican Summer League. That got him started. Later in 2016 he played for the Arizona Rangers in rookie league ball. He had 12 doubles, 6 triples, one home run and 21 RBI in just 133 at-bats. He hit .293 and scored 22 times. He then jumped to A- ball playing for the Spokane Indians. There he had 8 homers and 19 RBI hitting .277 in just 94 at-bats. That was a great way to end the season.

In 2017 he played for the Hickory Crawdads. There he hit .247 with 8 home runs, 53 RBI, 24 doubles, nine triples and ten steals in 401 at-bats. That checked off an awful lot of boxes for this talented prospect and now he really has something to build on. That was in A-ball so what’s next?

Collectors can get his 2017 Bowman Chrome autographed rookie card.

According to his MLB.com draft profile:

Tejeda has surprising power for someone listed at 5-foot-11, generating easy plus raw pop from the left side of the plate thanks to his quick hands and wiry strength. His whippy stroke has considerable bat speed and he has some natural hitting ability, giving him the chance to hit for a solid average as he matures. To do so, he’ll have to quiet his approach, tighten his strike zone and use the opposite field more often. ETA 2020.

At the end of the day this is a player who’s developing quickly. Collectors can now react accordingly.
