Found June 14, 2012 on PRO Rumors:
Outfielder Vladimir Guerrero was released earlier this week by the Toronto Blue Jays at his request and Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports says that the Detroit Tigers have “lukewarm” interest in acquiring him. They're not clear “if they will pursue him at this point,” says Morosi. The Blue Jays signed Guerrero back in May, but since they didn't have room for him on their Major League roster, Guerrero requested his unconditional release. Guerrero worked out for the Diamondbacks back in April. Last season, he hit .290/.317/.416 with 13 HR’s  and 63 RBI’s in 562 AB’s for the Orioles. The 37-year old Guerrero didn’t put a glove on all of last year as he spent time only at DH for the Orioles (and has only 20 appearances in the field since 2009).
