Is Tribe interested in Vlad?

By Sheldon Ocker Published: March 26, 2012

GOODYEAR, Ariz.: A report by ESPN Deportes says that veteran outfielder Vladimir Guerrero worked out for the Indians at their facility in the Dominican Republc.

An anonymous source was cited saying the Tribe was interested in signing the 37-year-old, but the club's director of operations in the Dominican, Ramon Pena, refused to confirm or deny that he worked out.

Guerrero was released at the end of last season after batting .290 with 13 homers and 63 RBI in 562 at-bats as the desginated hitter with the Orioles. He has not played the outfield since 2010, when he played 18 games (17 in right) for the Rangers.

General Manager Chris Antonetti has been seeking help outside the organization to fill the left field spot, but he had all spring to contract Guerrero if he had real interest. The Tribe has been seeking a left fielder since Grady Sizemore got hurt early in camp and Michael Brantley moved from left to center.
