Astros Sign Venezuelan Outfielder Nestor Tejada

The Astros have signed Venezuelan outfielder Nestor Tejada.

Tejada, a 16-year-old lefty, performed well at the 15U World Championship in Mexico last August and stands out more in games than in tryouts, although his speed is above-average and should allow him to play center field. Tejada trained at Carlos Guillen’s academy.
