Tejada likely done with Astros
Astros general manager Ed Wade met Tuesday morning with Diego Bentz, the agent for free-agent infielder Miguel Tejada, and expressed doubt his club would be able to sign the former American League Most Valuable Player.
“I’m not optimistic we’re going to be able to get anything done on Miggy,” Wade said. “We love him death and everything he’s brought to the organization, but I don’t necessarily see a common ground.”
Wade said the sticking point is length of terms of the contract. Tejada made about $14 million last season, but the Astros told him he’d had to have a large pay cut and play third base if he was going to return for a third season in Houston. That return now seems very unlikely.
