Miguel Tejada, once the franchise player of the Orioles organization, could be near his third stint with the team. Tejada is slated to report to the Orioles spring training facility in Sarasota on Monday and work out with the organization's extended spring training team, a club source confirmed. If the club likes what they see in the 37-year-old former AL MVP, they could pursue a contract. 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.

SARASOTA, Fla. -  Two-time Cy Young Award winner Johan Santana visited the Ed Smith Stadium Complex on Monday morning with little fanfare - the latest veteran seeking a second baseball life with the Orioles. The Orioles were nearing a minor league deal with the injury-plagued Santana on Monday evening, according to an industry source. He would be the latest reclamation project under executive vice president Dan Duquette. Santana - who will be 35 this month - was once one of the best left-handed pitchers in the game, but he did not pitch at all last season after his second shoulder surgery in three seasons last April to repair a torn anterior capsule.

I’m glad Major League Baseball has changed its stance on sharing video, because I wouldn’t have been able to pass along this video of a Cubs fan trying to gun down Miguel Tejada at home plate after a home run. I know, Tejada, now with the Giants, couldn't be tagged out because he smashed the ball into the bleachers -- and because fans can't throw players out -- but check out the throw as Miggy is rounding the bases.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Just minutes into the news conference that introduced him Thursday morning as the Orioles' largest signing of a free-agent pitcher in franchise history, right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez acknowledged the club's uncommonly large investment in him. In the same breath, the 30-year-old pitcher sent a message from Florida's Gulf Coast to welcome ears up north in Baltimore, where the press conference was being televised live. “I know it took a lot for them to bring me here,” said Jimenez, flanked by Orioles manager Buck Showalter and executive vice president Dan Duquette.

Kansas City Royals infielder Miguel Tejada, who spent five seasons with the Orioles, was back at Camden Yards on Tuesday for the first time as a visitor since 2008 when he was with the Houston Astros. “I'm excited, and not just because it is against my old team, but because I am playing,” said Tejada, who entered Tuesday hitting .313 (5-for-16) in a limited role. “I'm happy to come back here, to say hi to my old people and I'm happy with the way the team is playing, too.” Tejada, 38, played with the Orioles from 2004 to 2007 and again in 2010.

The return of former Oriole Miguel Tejada still has several steps to overcome before coming to fruition, according to Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette. Tejada will report to the team's spring training facility on Monday to meet with Chris Correnti, who oversees the organization's rehab and conditioning. The 37-year-old former AL MVP will have a physical there and if he passes will then be signed to a contract to play in extended spring training, Duquette said.

KISSIMMEE, Fla.-- --This is the way baseball works in 2008. Disgruntled slugger gets traded to new team for a fresh start. Slugger has an additional spring in his step, a wider smile on his face, an extra-peppy, "just happy to be here" cliche on his lips. Slugger then is asked about steroid allegations and federal investigations, averts his eyes and stumbles through typical, attorney-advised "no comment." Yesterday, former Orioles star Miguel Tejada put on his No. 10 Houston Astros jersey for the first time and ran drills with his new teammates on a gorgeous Central Florida day. There were no clouds in the sky. An ominous one, however, hung over Tejada's locker.

It was spring training, the games were meaningless exhibitions and the Orioles were starting to get a sense of their newest leader and newest character, Miguel Tejada. Not just the way he fielded the shortstop position. Not just the way he hit - and he did plenty of that this spring. But also the way he brought them to life when everything else seemed dead. "It'll be quiet on the bench, and, out of the blue, he'll just yell something," said Orioles right fielder Jay Gibbons. "He'll blurt out a movie line or something.

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.

Despite his gaudy run-production numbers this past season, first baseman Chris Davis will be an underdog to become the first Orioles player to win the American League Most Valuable Player Award in more than two decades. Davis was named one of three finalists for the award Tuesday night, along with Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera and Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout. The Orioles slugger led the major leagues with 53 home runs, 138 RBIs and 370 total bases, and he was a Gold Glove finalist at first base.

One of the things I'm often asked when people find out what I do for a living is, "What do you cover in the offseason?" My answer: Baseball, because there really is no offseason anymore. That's been pretty evident this year. Lots of little things to keep us busy. Tuesday marks one month since the Orioles played their last game of the 2013 season on Sept. 29. So far this offseason, the Orioles' top young player has undergone surgery, several Orioles players have been named finalists for various awards, and the club officially dismissed its pitching coach and kicked off a search for another one. (And I'm not even counting Cal Ripken Jr. managing rumors)

BOSTON -- Chris Davis is officially No. 3.  The Orioles' slugging first baseman hit a deep fly to right center in the sixth inning Wednesday against Boston's John Lackey for his major league-leading 47th homer of the season. That puts Davis alone at third on the franchise's all-time single-season list, breaking a tie with Jim Gentile, who hit 46 in 1961. Brady Anderson's 50 home runs in 1996 is the top mark in team history, with Frank Robinson's 49 in his 1966 Triple Crown season in second place.

The Orioles recalled right-hander Josh Stinson from Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday to take outfielder Henry Urrutia's roster spot following the team's 6-3 loss to the Colorado Rockies. Stinson's presence gives the Orioles a long, right-handed reliever in the bullpen that could be available against a Rockies lineup featuring more right-handed batters. It's Stinson's third stint with the Orioles this season, and he's made one appearance, allowing five runs in 5 2/3 innings in a 6-5 loss to Toronto on April 24. Stinson was last with the Orioles on July 10-11, and manager Buck Showalter was complimentary of Stinson's willingness to go back to Norfolk to get work in after sitting in the Orioles bullpen for two games.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - This is why the Orioles traded for right-hander Scott Feldman. After his eight-inning, two-run effort in Monday's 9-2 win over the Royals , Feldman has turned in three quality starts in his four Orioles outings. Take away his second start, in which he was charged with seven runs against the Rangers on July 8, and Feldman has a 2.95 ERA. The Orioles struck quickly to acquire Feldman from the Cubs on July 2 in a trade that sent Jake Arrieta and Pedro Strop to Chicago.

Buck Showalter doesn't bite often on the “big win, good win” questions. It's a 162 game season, after all, and Showalter is a big believer in one game doesn't mean much more than the other. But he's also talked about how difficult it can be to come back from a long road trip and not be flat in the first game at home. So how important was it to keep the momentum going on Tuesday night at home? “It wasn't more important [than the road trip], that was an important road trip for us. Any time you go to the West Coast and play that many games in a row,” Showalter said.

PHILADELPHIA -- The constant in-game chatter has returned. So have the incessant clapping, the expansive smile and the bat that shoots lasers to every part of a baseball diamond. He's in a Houston Astros uniform now, but Miguel Tejada is looking like the old Miggi, the one who excited Camden Yards crowds when he first came to Baltimore. "I'm feeling good, feeling like I have a lot of energy," said Tejada, whose four-year stint as the Orioles' starting shortstop ended in December when he was dealt to the Astros for five players.

When Miguel Tejada takes his rightful spot as the American League's starting shortstop in tonight's 76th All-Star game in Detroit, he'll look to his left and see his buddy and Orioles teammate, Brian Roberts, probably baseball's most surprising new star. To Tejada's right will be New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, the game's highest-paid player and perennial Most Valuable Player candidate. If Tejada is searching for the absolute best player in baseball, however, the argument can be made that he should simply look inward.

The Orioles' acquisition of Jair Jurrjens won't become official until he has a physical this week, but all signs point to the right-hander joining the O's cluttered starting rotation mix. Jurrjens, who turns 27 tomorrow, will make a $1.5 million base salary in the one-year deal and could make up to $4 million with incentives. From what I've seen, his addition has been welcomed by the Orioles' fan base. Many fans see Jurrjens as a low-risk, high-reward player who fits Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette's method of reaping the rewards from giving players second-chance opportunities.
