He would add a solid defensive glove at third base and a right-handed bat, and it's likely any deal would be a minor-league deal.
Before the 2004 season, the Orioles signed Tejada to a six-year, $72-million deal. He played four years in Baltimore, averaging 25 homers and 107 RBIs and making the AL All-Star team three times before being dealt to Houston before the 2008 season.
Tejada returned to the Orioles briefly in 2010, hitting .269/.308/.362 in 98 games before being traded to San Diego.
Tejada, who won the 2002 AL MVP with Oakland, put up a .305/.354/.481 line in parts of five seasons with the Orioles.
Tejada last played for the Giants last season, batting .239/.270/.326 in 91 games before he was designated for assignment and ultimately released in September.
