Profile: Although he isn't currently on the 40-man roster, it would be far from shocking to see Tejada spend a good chunk of the season in the majors with the Yankees. Didi Gregorius and Starlin Castro are entrenched as the starters at short and second, but aside from Ronald Torreyes — who is primarily a third baseman — they don't really have major league-ready players who can capably handle playing middle-infield defense. If any of those three get hurt — or if the Yanks decide they're not comfortable with Torreyes being their only backup infielder — Tejada's likely the next man up. That said, Tejada has no power, no base stealing ability, and is a career .252 hitter. (Scott Strandberg)

The Quick Opinion: Tejada could have value to the Yankees as a glove-first bench piece, but he has nothing to offer in fantasy.
