Magglio Ordonez Wants To Continue Playing

Outfielder Magglio Ordonez is said to want to keep playing, despite the re-break of his ankle, according to Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated (via Twitter).  The veteran re-fractured his ankle on Saturday.

Earlier this month, Ordonez admitted that he nearly retired mid-season due to lingering issues in his surgically-repaired right ankle.  The slugger will turn 38 in January and will be eligible for free agency this winter.  He earned $10MM in 2011 but should see a significant pay cut if he decides to return in 2012.

I don’t know how he got 10 mil last year. He only played 84 games.

I have my doubts that Maggs can still get it done on the field, but if he’s healthy and up to the challenge, then I’ll be rooting him on all the way. What team may be in the market for his services? The Rays? They signed him in my MLB game, so it must be plausible right?
