UPDATE: SI.com’s
Jon Heyman
hears that Tejada’s one-year deal is worth $6 million
and contains some performance bonuses.

So reports Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun.

It’s a one year deal, and the terms have yet to be announced. Tejada will almost certainly play third, as , Andy MacPhail has said that he would prefer to play Garret Atkins at first base.

Assuming he’s not getting too much dough, Tejada makes a nice stopgap until top
prospect Josh Bell is ready for the majors. And hey, if Tejada plays well and the Orioles are out of it, they may be able to get something for the guy at the trade deadlines.
