Twins, Indians Not Interested In Tejada

8:31pm: MLB.com's Anthony Castrovince says Mark Shapiro shook his head when the Tejada rumor was brought up.  Maybe someone on the Astros' side floated all this rumored interest in the shortstop.

8:15pm: Twins assistant GM Rob Antony suggested with facial expressions and body language that they're not in on Tejada, according to Phil Miller.

7:00pm: Yahoo's Jeff Passan says the Indians have also discussed a Tejada trade with the Astros.  The Indians' interest depends on how much they spend on a closer.

As for the Twins...LEN3 says, "Miguel Tejada is NOT an option."

6:57pm: MLB.com's Alyson Footer says the Twins expressed interest in Tejada.  The Astros would like to get one of the Twins' young starters, and would be willing to eat salary.

Footer adds that interest in Ty Wigginton is "abundant," with the Twins again a possible match.  She nixes the idea of the 'Stros acquiring Ramon Hernandez from Baltimore.

4:10pm: According to Phil Miller of the St. Paul Pioneer Press:

Can’t vouch for its veracity – not sure I really believe it myself -- but I just heard in the gossip scrum that is forming at the edge of the Bellagio lobby that there was at least a phone call between the Astros and Twins regarding Miguel Tejada, the long-ago MVP shortstop.

Coming from a "gossip scrum," it's hard to know what to make of it.  But, Miller felt it was worthy of publishing.
