The 38-year-old infielder told The Associated Press that he has a one-year contract for $1.1 million and another $400,000 in performance bonuses.

The six-time All-Star last played in the big leagues in 2011 with San Francisco, hitting .239 with four home runs and 26 RBIs in 91 games. Tejada played 36 games in Triple-A for Baltimore last season, batting .259 with no homers and 18 RBIs, and was released in late June.

Tejada has been playing for the Aguilas Cibaenas in the Dominican Republic Winter League. He says he lost 15 pounds during the summer.

Tejada spent 15 seasons in the majors and was the 2002 AL MVP with Oakland.
