Vladimir Guerrero is attempting a comeback at age 38

Vladimir Guerrero has been unemployed since the Blue Jays released him from their Triple-A team in June, but the former MVP is attempting a comeback.

Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that Guerrero is looking to sign with an MLB team and would be willing to accept a minor-league contract.

Guerrero played a dozen games in the minors for the Blue Jays last season and hit well, at which point he gave the team a “call me up or release me” ultimatum and they released him. Presumably he’s willing to show a little more patience this time around, although after following up his career-worst 2011 production by sitting out nearly an entirely season it may be too late at age 38.

Jim Thome has been unsuccessfully looking for work all offseason, so the market for aging designated hitters isn’t a strong one.
