Canseco, 54, tweeted to Trump Wednesday evening, saying he needs a "bash brother for Chief if (sic) Staff."
The Cuban-born baseball player said he has a "secret reorg plan already" and directed the president to send him a direct message.

Last Saturday, Trump announced that his chief of staff, John Kelly, will leave at the end of the year. The president is now scrambling to fill the top White House position after Kelly's expected replacement announced he would not take the job.
Back in October, Canseco also expressed interest in serving in Trump's administration. Following the news that Nikki Haley was stepping down as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, the slugger said he was "interested" in the job.
