SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A person familiar with the deal says the World Series champion San Francisco Giants have agreed with free-agent shortstop Miguel Tejada on terms of a one-year contract.

The deal is pending a physical, the person told The Associated Press on Tuesday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the contract had not been finalized. A formal announcement could come later this week.

Tejada, who played 156 games last season with Baltimore and San Diego, would take over a spot filled previously by Juan Uribe and World Series MVP Edgar Renteria.

Giants general manager Brian Sabean has been eager to find a new shortstop this offseason. Renteria is a free agent, and Uribe completed a $21 million, three-year contract with the rival Dodgers on Tuesday.
