Looking for another slugger, Indians work out Vladimir Guerrero

Cleveland Indians manager Manny Acta is finalizing his 2012 roster but is still looking to add a key power-hitter in the middle of the batting order.

Acta has known Vladimir Guerrero since their days with the former Montreal Expos franchise.

This is the reason that the Indians worked out the unsigned free agent outfielder in his native Dominican Republic a few days ago at the team’s baseball academy.

A career .318 hitter, the 38-year-old DH/Outfielder has hit 449 homers in 16 seasons with Montreal, the LA Angels, Texas and Baltimore.

The Indians are trying to add another threat to a lineup which has struggled to score runs the past two years with younger players.

Guerrero, a former MVP and nine-time All-Star, could share time at DH with the often-injured Travis Hafner, but reports say that the Indians will only sign him if he can still play the outfield. Guerrero has a strong arm and can play left or right field.

The Indians have two designated hitters in Jim Thome and Travis Hafner. They know that Hafner will return in 2012, but Thome will take the offseason to decide. The Indians want the popular Thome back.

Cleveland general manager Chris Antonelli says that the team has talked to Thome about returning. They found out in his return to his original team, the Illinois native can still contribute offensively and still provide leadership to the young players.

Thome has 604 homers in his career which totals 21 years in the Majors. He wants to come back but will discuss it with his family.

Thome and Hafner split time with Hafner as the team’s DH, after “Pronk” returned to the lineup from an injury to his right foot.

The Indians acquired Thome from their AL Central Division rivals, the Minnesota Twins on August 25 to fill-in for Hafner. What the team found out, was both could share the DH role and each would be fresher because not one man was doing the job solo as Hafner had been doing.

The Cleveland Indians lost more than a game to the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday, 8-3. They also lost the talented Grady Sizemore again, to the diasbled list.

Sizemore left the game in the first inning with a bruised right knee. The same knee that put him on the DL back in May.

The Indians hitters could do nothing batting against rookie right-hander Mitch Atkins. They scored three runs in the first inning and received home runs from Travis Hafner and Carlos Santana.

Cleveland left 11 runners overall and went 2 for 8 with runners in scoring position.

Jeanmar Gomez, who was recalled from Columbus before the game, had trouble keeping the Orioles in the ballpark.

The game also marked the major league debut for Matt Angle, the Whitehall High School and the Ohio State product. He batted lead-off for the Orioles, played left field and went 0 for 3 with a walk.

If anyone knows how to get up and down Interstate 71 North to Cleveland and South to Columbus, it’s Travis Buck. He has been up and down several times this year, most recently on Friday to make room for Travis Hafner to come off the disabled list.

On Saturday, he was recalled from Triple-A Columbus to replace Matt LaPorta who will be on the diasbled list for two to three weeks with a sprain of his right ankle.

LaPorta was having a nice season hitting .242 with eight homers and 32 RBI’s in 59 games before his injury.
