Jose Canseco Offers To Play For the Dodgers For Free

Former Major League slugger Jose Canseco tweeted his services to the new owners of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

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.
