After news broke Tuesday that former Los Angeles Lakers star Magic Johnson and longtime baseball executive Stan Kasten had agreed to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers from Frank McCourt for a record $2 billion, Canseco tweeted his request to the new owners that he would play for free.

Canseco, 47, attempted a comeback in the Mexican Baseball League; however, he was recently banned from the league for refusing to submit a drug test and admitting to taking testosterone.

Canseco last played in the majors in 2001. Over the course of his 17-year-career he blasted 462 home runs while hitting .266/.353/.515.
