Report: Sammy Sosa open to return

New York, NY (Sports Network) - Former major league slugger Sammy Sosa has reportedly told a Dominican newspaper he has interest in resuming his career.

According to a story posted on MLB.com, the 40-year-old Sosa, who last played in the big leagues with Texas in 2007, told Dominican newspaper Listin Diario he doesn't have an offer. But Sosa also said he hoped he could prove he's still a hitting threat, and that interested teams should propose an offer.

Sosa hit .252 with 21 homers and 92 RBI in 114 games with Texas in 2007. The homers pushed him over the 600 home run plateau, and Sosa is one of six players all-time to have reached that mark.

For his career, Sosa owns a .273 average with 609 homers and 1,667 RBI in 18 seasons with Texas, the Chicago White Sox, the Chicago Cubs and Baltimore.
