Veteran infielder Miguel Tejada was released from Triple-A Norfolk (the Orioles’ International League affiliate) in late June and failed to latch on with another organization. But he is keeping active.

According to Venezuelan baseball reporter Manolo Hernandez, the 38-year-old Tejada will being playing with Aguilas Cibaenas of the Dominican Winter League on Sunday. He’s presumably hoping to show enough to convince a major league team to offer him a chance to claim a 25-man roster spot next spring.

Tejada batted just .259/.325/.296 with no home runs and only five total extra-base hits in 151 plate appearances this past year at Norfolk. He posted a brutal .596 OPS in 91 games with the Giants in 2011.

    He should place an order for those special Vitamin B12 shots from the DR. He used to play way better when he took better care of himself and took his vitamins regularly.

      Does the Dominican League have PED testing? If not, watch Tejada do well…

    Must you show poor Miggy in a Giants uniform? That wasn’t the highlight of his career, or Brian Sabean’s…..
