Phillies could be interested in Tejada

Philadelphia Inquirer's Jim Salisbury is reporting that the Phillies could have interest in Miguel Tejada, if he's serious about being willing to play 3B, now that they've declined Pedro Feliz' $5.5mil option in 2010.

Also on the Phillies' watch list for free agent third basemen are Adrian Beltre, Chone Figgins, and Mark DeRosa. Writer Andy Martino notes, though, that the Angels will likely make a hard run at re-signing Figgins, and DeRosa is 34, after all. That leaves Beltre.

Back to Salisbury's article, though:
The Phils explored the idea of trading for Tejada and moving him to third several years ago, but he was not open to changing positions at the time.
