Astros' Tejada reconsiders, will play in WBC
KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Houston Astros shortstop Miguel Tejada has changed his mind and will play for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic.

Tejada said earlier this week he decided to skip the event because the Dominican team had asked him to play first base. The Astros said Friday that he reconsidered and will most likely be used at shortstop, third base and designated hitter.

The All-Star and former AL MVP is expected to join the team Monday.

"We fully support Miguel's decision to participate in the WBC," Astros general manager Ed Wade said.
