Vladimir Guerrero eventually could sign with the Rangers, though the Fort Worth Star-Telegram continues to report that the team has yet to make an official offer to the free-agent outfielder/DH.
SI.com and the Rangers’ Web site reported Friday that the team had offered Guerrero a one-year contract. Texas would pay Guerrero $5 million plus incentives, according to SI.com.
Earlier reports indicated Guerrero, 34, is seeking a two-year contract. Last year he completed a five-year, $70 million contract with the Los Angeles Angels.
Injuries limited Guerrero to 100 games last year, and he posted career lows in batting average (.295), on-base percentage (.334) and slugging percentage (.460).
