Guerrero Intends To Play; Japan An Option

Vladimir Guerrero intends to play this season, agent Fern Cuza confirmed to Jon Heyman of (Twitter link). If the 37-year-old doesn't have a job by the time Spring Training ends, he'll explore opportunities in Japan.

Guerrero had interest in joining the Yankees this offseason and he appeared to draw some interest from the Marlins. However, it's been a quiet offseason for Guerrero other than that.

Guerrero has 2,590 hits, 449 homers and a .318/.379/.553 line 16 seasons into a career that will probably deliver him to Cooperstown soon after he retires. In 590 plate appearances with the Orioles last year, the nine-time All-Star posted a .290/.317/.416 line with 13 homers.
