On the move?

If Tejada isn't traded, he could be shifting from short to third

Miguel Tejada's future

September 21, 2007|By Jeff Zrebiec | Jeff Zrebiec,Sun reporter

Arlington, Texas -- As the Orioles head into the final days of the season, they also are moving closer to having to make a tough decision on their most accomplished player, Miguel Tejada, whose future in Baltimore and at shortstop remains unsettled.

Though no Orioles executive will say it publicly, there's plenty of sentiment in the front office that if Tejada returns, it should be at another position. Tejada has struggled defensively this season at the only position he has ever played, making 15 errors and compiling a .969 fielding percentage, which would be his worst since he became an everyday player for the Oakland Athletics in 1998.
