Tejada has been working out and playing in games at extended spring training.
It's been two weeks since the Orioles reached agreement with Tejada on a minor league deal. Executive vice president Dan Duquette told me Thursday that the club was nearing a decision on whether to keep Tejada.
The Orioles signed Tejada because of concerns over their defense at third base. He contacted the team after failing to land a major league job in free agency.
Tejada is one promotion away from joining the Orioles for a third time.
