The lanky 6 ft 3 inches, 188-pound Robinson Tejeda showed promise during his first two seasons with the Texas Rangers. The first year, he started 13 games and relieved in 13 games, going 4-3 with 70 strikeouts in 85.2 innings. The next year he posted a solid 5-5 record in 14 starts.
Upon Further Review:
Robinson Tejeda throws a sinking 90 to 95 miles per hour fastball, a decent slider and a soft-handed changeup. ‘When he’s on his game,’ said Texas’ new manager for 2007, Ron Washington, ‘he’s going to be tough to beat. His pitching delivery on his fastball challenges batters and is tough to hit.'
On April 7 2007 Robinson Tejeda yielded just 2 hits, one an infield dribbler, no runs, struckout just one, in 7 innings, helping the Texas Rangers beat Boston 2-0 and win their first game of the young season after 3 losses.
