"Back in baseball I knew I would play this year you just gotta believe in your dreams," Canseco wrote Sunday on Twitter. "Leave on redeye tonite to start spring training with AAA quintana roo tigers tomorrow . Team won league championship last year."

Canseco has been offered a contract by the Quintana Roo Tigers, but reportedly hasn't signed a contract yet.

The last thing Canseco did in baseball was in 2005 when he wrote a book which outed several former teammates for their use of steroids.

The former Athletic and White Sox played for seven teams in his career and won the AL MVP award in 1988.
