Happy birthday, Michael Tejera

Happy birthday to Michael Tejera, who turns 35 today.

Tejera was one of the legion of random replacement level pitchers who floated through Arlington in the early- and mid-aughts, a lefthander who the Marlins drafted in the 6th round in 1995, and who the Rangers claimed off of waivers in September of 2004.

Tejera allowed 6 runs in 5 1/3 innings that September for the Rangers.  Undaunted, the Rangers kept him around, and he pitched 2 more innings in 2005, allowing 3 runs.  Amazingly, there are six pitchers in Rangers history who have an ERA (in at least 5 innings) with the team higher than Tejera's 11.05.  Not amazingly, five of those six pitches in the early- to mid-aughts.
