The 48-year-old Canseco hit 462 home runs in 18 seasons in the majors and was the 1988 AL MVP. He later admitted using performance-enhancing drugs.
Earlier this season, Canseco played in 20 games for the Worcester Tornadoes in the Canadian-American Association. Last year, he hit .256 with eight home runs and 46 RBIs as a player-manager for the North American Baseball League’s Yuma Scorpions.
The signing comes three days after Canseco filed for bankruptcy protection in Nevada. The filing lists less than $21,000 in assets and almost $1.7 million in liabilities, including more than $500,000 owed to the Internal Revenue Service.
