Juan Gonzalez Desires Comeback

Juan Gonzalez's agent has been contacting major league teams to determine interest in the former slugger's services, but has found no takers. Gonzalez, 36, last year persuaded Cleveland to give him a shot, and was paid $600,000 for one plate appearance in which he failed to reach first base and went out for the rest of the year. Gonzalez was last productive in 2001, when he hit .289 with 35 homers in 532 ABs for the Tigers.
