07:06 AM ET 07.29 | As Miguel Tejada's name swirls around in the possible trade blender, St. Louis, apparently, is out. The Cardinals contacted the Orioles about Tejada, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, but there was "no traction" for a trade. ... Tejada is drawing lukewarm interest from the Yanks, according to the New York Post. The former AL MVP is Philadelphia's top infield target, according to an ESPN.com report, and the Padres are interested in the longtime shortstop, too. The 36-year-old makes $6MM this season (about $2.3MM remains) and he projects as a Type B free agent, though he's close to Type A status. That likely won't matter, since Tejada is hitting .271/.309/.364 and an arbitration offer seems unlikely.
