NEW: Canseco Files for Bankruptcy

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

Worcester Tornadoes slugger Jose Canseco has filed for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Nevada.

The 1988 American League MVP is seeking liquidation after filing Chapter 7 documents Tuesday in Bankruptcy Court in Las Vegas. The petition says that Canseco lives in Las Vegas, according to the Las Vegas Sun.

The filing lists less than $21,000 in assets and nearly $1.7 million in liabilities. It also says that the 48-year old Canseco owes nearly $500,000 to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Canseco signed with the Tornadoes for $1,000 a month in April, but hasn't played for the squad since being placed on the DL in late June. Canseco was off to a slow start in Worcester, batting .194 in 20 appearances.
