Sources: Canseco Not Coming to Laredo
Former Major League Baseball player, Jose Canseco, is expected to make a return to Laredo at the end of the month when his current team, the Worchester Tornados is scheduled to play the Lemurs.
But sources close to Canseco, who wish to remain anonymous, said Canseco does not plan on making the road trip to Laredo.
The source said prior to signing his contract, Canseco gave the tornados 15 dates he was not able to attend games due to prior appearance arrangements, and the weekend the tornados are in Laredo was one of the dates.
According to online sources, Canseco has committed to a hitting clinic in Ottawa to benefit autism, June 29 and 30, the same days the Tornados will be in Laredo.
There is also mixed reports on Canseco leaving the Tornados; a teammate tweeted Canseco was leaving the organization on Friday, but Canseco told Canadian media it was false information.
The source also said Canseco is currently dealing with multiple injuries right now, including a pulled bicep and hamstring.
The lemurs have issued a statement saying according to Worchester management, Jose Canseco will be traveling with the team. They said they confirmed with officials last week.
E-mails to the Worchester organization went un-returned.
The former American League MVP spent 17 years in the majors and played eleven games for the Laredo Broncos in 2010.
