The Cardinals, Giants and Padres have all checked in on former Oakland, Baltimore, Houston and San Diego infielder Miguel Tejada, according to a report on ESPN Deportes.
According to the report, St. Louis has been the most persistent suitor, first making contact in late October.
The Cardinals would like Tejada, according to ESPN, to be something of a super utility player. He could get playing time at third if David Freese's ankle problems persist. If Freese is healthy, he could play shortstop if Brendan Ryan's bat continues to struggle like it did last season.
While the Redbirds are offering a part time situation, Tejada may be holding out for a starting job.
