Giants Sign Miguel Tejada

SAN FRANCISCO - OCTOBER 03: Miguel Tejada #10 of the San Diego Padres stands at home plate after he struck out with two runners on base to end the seventh inning of their game against the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park on October 3 2010 in San Francisco California.

The San Francisco Giants have moved swiftly in replacing Juan Uribe. The defending World Series Champions have signed Miguel Tejada to a one year, $6.5 million deal.

The Giants were widely believed to be the front runners in the Jason Bartlett trade sweepstakes, but instead chose to sign Tejada. This means that Bartlett is still available, and should be traded to a different team soon.

Tejada spent the 2010 season playing for the Orioles and then the Padres, and hit .269/.312/.381 on the season with 15 home runs and 71 RBI's.

Tejada's career batting average against the Giants is the 2nd lowest for him vs. any MLB team (lowest against the Braves) and Tejada has hit .297/.319/.396 career at AT&T Park.
