Magglio Ordonez Still Looking For Major League Contract For 2012

The future is still in doubt for 38-year-old Magglio Ordonez with the start of spring training right around the corner. The former Detroit Tigers outfielder is still looking for a job, but today he told Deportes Union Radio in his native Venezuela that he's not looking for a minor-league contract.

"The market is tough for me," Ordonez said. "But I'm working to continue my career."

Ordonez re-signed with the Tigers last winter for one year and $10 million, and he was largely disappointing, hitting just .255 with five homers. The Tigers now have young outfielder Brennan Boesch waiting in the wings, which might mean no room left for Ordonez on the 2012 roster.

There may be a market for Ordonez elsewhere in the American League -- the Oakland A's are among the teams connected to the aging outfielder in rumors this winter.

Ordonez has a .309 career average, 294 home runs and 1,236 RBIs in his 15-year career. He was the runner-up for AL MVP in 2007.
