Report: Jose Guillen Attempting MLB Comeback
Outfielder Jose Guillen is reportedly interested in making an MLB comeback after missing the entirety of the 2011 season, according to ESPN Deportes.
Guillen, 35, last played in 2010 when he hit .258/.314/.416 with 19 home runs and 77 RBI in 148 games between the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants. His season was cut short that year due to a neck injury, which prevented Guillen from helping the Giants claim their first World Series in 56 years. At the time , he was also being investigated for performance enhancing drugs. In 2003, Guillen was one of the top slugging outfielders in baseball when he hit .311/.359/.569 with 31 home runs and 86 RBI in just 136 games between the Oakland Athletics and the Cincinnati Reds. The next season he hit .294/.352/.497 with 27 home runs and 104 RBI for the Angels.
