Sources tell T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com that free-agent designated hitter Vladimir Guerrero wants a three-year deal, but he'd be willing to settle for a two-year contract to return to the Rangers.
Guerrero had an All-Star season in Texas, batting .300 with 115 RBI and 29 homers after signing a one-year deal with a base salary of $5.5 million. The Rangers would like to do another one-year deal, but Guerrero figures his big season for the American League champions should buy him a multi-year deal. A two-year agreement could be the perfect compromise.
"We're still talking," general manager Jon Daniels said. "One of our primary needs is a designated hitter, and Vlad is certainly on that list."
