MLB Trade Rumors: Miguel Tejada Going To San Diego?

That's the suspicion of the Baltimore Sun's Dan Connolly:

#Orioles Miguel Tejada has been scratched; believed he has been dealt to the San Diego Padres pending league approval. Still working on this
#Orioles Money must be exchanging hands for league approval. Josh Bell has been removed from AAA lineup and is heading to KC for Os game

The Padres have been searching for infield help and have been linked to Tejada recently, so this trade would make a lot of sense. Tejada has hit just .269/.308/.362 on the season, but he's an experienced veteran who can handle the left side of the diamond, so he could be of some use to a Padres team that's presently without David Eckstein.
