According to Enrique Rojas of ESPN, Vladimir Guerrero worked out for Cleveland Indians’ scouts at the Indians’ Dominican academy.  Guerrero hit .290/.317/.416 with 13 HR in 590 plate appearances last season with the Orioles. According to one source cited by Rojas, “There seems to be a genuine interest by the Indians to see if he can help the team.” If Guerrero cannot latch on with an MLB team, he’s suggested he would explore the possibility of continuing his career in Japan. There have been some recent grumblings that the Indians’ brass has been nonplussed by the open competition for the left field spot.  Guerrero would seemingly play into that competition were he to be added to the fold, though his range has been particularly questionable in recent years.
