Orioles sign Dominican Miguel Tejada, could play at third base

The Dominican Baseball Guy recently did an interview with Adam Brush, the trainer of Miguel Tejada.  The two were working out in Florida, with the anticipation that an MLB team signs him this year.

That anticipation was answered and the Orioles have signed Miguel Tejada for the rest of the season.  The Orioles want a second option at third base, where Mark Reynolds has struggled.

No one knows whether Tejada will replace Reynolds, or even if he will make it onto the big league roster.  For now, Tejada is heading to the Orioles complex in Sarasota, Florida for an extended Spring Training.  If he shows he is ready to play at a major league level, the team can call him up.

This is Miguel Tejada's third stint with the Orioles.  He is from Bani, Dominican Republic.
