Guerrero, 37, hit .290/.317/.416 with 13 home runs and 63 RBI in 145 games for the Baltimore Orioles last season. The nine-time All-Star is just one year removed from a season in which he hit .300/.345/.496 with 29 home runs and 115 RBI for the Texas Rangers.
The former American League Most Valuable Player is likely looking for one more stop before ending a potential Hall of Fame career. In 16 seasons Guerrero has hit .318/.379/.553 with 449 home runs and 2147 hits. He has led the league in total bases twice in his career, and was just one home run shy of joining the elite 40-40 club in 2002 with the Montreal Expos.
