Vladimir Guerrero requested that workout with the Indians

Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reported yesterday that Vladimir Guerrero worked out for the Indians in the Dominican Republic and “there seems to be genuine interest from the Indians.”

However, today Indians general manager Chris Antonetti threw cold water on the story by saying that Guerrero is the one who requested the workout and indicating that they don’t actually have any interest–“genuine” or otherwise–in signing him.

Or as Antonetti put it: “We just worked him out. Don’t read too much into it.”

Guerrero’s agent said last week that the 37-year-old former MVP wants to keep playing and will consider signing with a Japanese team if he doesn’t get any interest from MLB teams before Opening Day. At this point that seems like a fairly safe assumption, as the market for late-30s designated hitters coming off a .733 OPS season is very limited.

    I know he’s not putting up the numbers like he used to, but it’s a sad day when a guy like Vladimir Gurerreor can’t play ball anymore.
