Miguel Tejada Suspended from Dominican Team for Buying Shares Of a Rival Team

Miguel Tejada has been banned for the rest of the season.

No, this is not an accidental repeat post. Tejada has been banned for the rest of the season after it was discovered that Tejada bought a 72-percent stock in a company that owns a rival team to Tejada’s Aguilas Cibaenas, a team he is actively playing for.

The story was broke by MLB’s Jesse Sanchez but was written in spanish by Dionisio Soldevila. Here’s an excerpt from the translated version of the story, which can be found on Hardball Talk.

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.


Tejada is 51 games into a 105-game ban by Major League baseball for testing positive for Adderall without having an exemption. He’ll be a free agent once his suspension is complete. His Adderall suspension plus his winter league suspension means he has received two season bans from two different leagues in a four month span. Not a great final third of the year of Tejada, eh?
