Veteran outfielder Johnny Damon is still looking for employment after being passed up by every team in the league in 2013. So with the 2014 season coming up, he’s still open to either playing or managing as long as it’s at the Major League level according to the Tampa Bay Times.

The former Kansas City Royal/Oakland Athletic/Boston Red Sox/New York Yankee/Detroit Tiger/Tampa Bay Rays/Cleveland Indians’ outfielder isn’t ready to walk away from the game yet despite being kicked to the curb last year.

Damon’s last active year was in 2012 with the Cleveland Indians. He only played 64 games, the lowest since 1995 and recorded only four home runs and 19 RBI’s. I’m not sure if any manager jobs are available, but the least he would receive is a minor league contract.

I know Damon prefer’s the Major League level, but he’s not always going to get what he’s looking for. I’m sure if he’s offered something he’ll take it, no matter where it is. As long as he’s still apart of the league, he should be happy.
