Vladimir Guerrero has said he is opting out of his minor league contract with the Toronto Blue Jays and may retire, states an unconfirmed report from Halos Heaven.

The 37-year-old Guerrero allegedly left the team following last night's game, reportedly telling management that he was not getting the opportunity he expected in terms of making a big league roster.

Biding his time as a free agent through the first month of the season, Guerrero was picked up by the Blue Jays on a minor league contract in early May and sent to Class-A Dunedin. The 2004 MVP was batting .313/.320/.625 in 11 games this season, though only has six hits in seven games since his promotion to Triple-A Las Vegas last week.

A nine-time All-Star and eight-time Silver Slugger, Guerrero has had a stellar career -- hitting .318/.379/.553 over 16 seasons -- and has a solid case for the Hall of Fame.
