Vladimir Guerrero Reportedly Works Out For Indians Scouts In Dominican Republic

With only a week until Opening Day, Vladimir Guerrero remains a free agent, but that could change here soon. According to ESPNDeportesLosAngeles.com, Guerrero worked out for the Cleveland Indians in the Dominican Republic on Monday:

"Guerrero was here today at the Indians' academy in Bocachica," said one source. "There seems to be a genuine interest by the Indians to see if he can help the team."

One source indicated the 2004 AL MVP was in good shape during the tryout, which was observed, among others, by Ramon Pena, Indians' director of operations on the island.

2011 was Vlad's worst in the majors, but he still hit .290/.317/.733 with 13 home runs in 562 at bats, so it's kind of hard to believe he's unsigned at this point. The Indians would be the nine-time All-Star's fifth team if he winds up signing. Guerrero's agent said his client could play in Japan if he doesn't land with an MLB team this season.
