The Pittsburgh Pirates have designated utility player Oscar Tejeda for assignment and recalled first baseman Jeff Clement from Single-A, reports Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

The 22-year-old Tejeda, claimed off waivers from the Red Sox in late June, was hitting just .242/.292/.364 with three home runs in fifty-four games since arriving at Pittsburgh's Double-A affiliate in Altoona. Shifted around between the middle infield and corner outfield in his six minor league seasons, Tejeda owns a career .270/.315/.370 line.

Clement returns to the Pirates' roster for the second time this season. The 29-year-old made five brief appearances for Pittsburgh in the last week and a half, going hitless in six at-bats, before being outrighted to Single-A on Saturday to open a spot on the playoff roster.

The left-handed hitting Clement has spent most of the season at Triple-A, where he is hitting .276/.340/.486 with sixteen home runs in one hundred twelve games.
