Infante should stabilize second base for Royals

Second base has been a revolving door lately for the Kansas City Royals. So much so that Miguel Tejada started 22 games at second base for the Royals in 2013. To put that in perspective, Tejada had four career starts at second base in 14 previous seasons and over 1900 games. But Kansas City was desperate for someone to fill in at the key infield spot. The Royals tried six different...

Royals say they'll truly miss Tejada, but admit he was wrong

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- If there was agreement on one issue regarding the whole Miguel Tejada saga, it was that his Royals teammates will miss his leadership skills the rest of the season.

Miguel Tejada seizes 2nd base job
