Canseco was born in Havana, however his family moved to Miami, Florida when he was still a baby. He has a twin brother named Ozzie. Canseco graduated from Coral Park High School before he entered the fields of baseball.

His career as a baseball player began in 1982, when he was selected as the 15th pick of the Major League Baseball Draft b they Oakland Athletics. Canseco slowly made a name for himself in Minor Baseball League, and his skills and talent were rewarded when he won Baseball America Minor League Player of the Year Award in 1985. Following this success he earned a place in the Major League, and debuted on the 2nd September 1985, against the Baltimore Orioles; however it was not much of a success because he was struck-out. Nevertheless, he did not surrender. On September 7 he had his first hit against the New York Yankees. In his first year in MLB, Canseco appeared in 29 games. His next season was a big break; he played every game, and earned the Rookie of the Year Award

After that, he only developed his career further and further, which resulted in the winning of his first World Series in 1989, which added a substantial amount to his net worth. His career was moving forward, however, injuries made him miss most of the games of the next few seasons. He was traded in the midst of the 1992 season to the Texas Rangers, then in 1994 he signed a contract worth $5.8 million per year with the Boston Red Sox; his net worth benefited considerably.

Canseco`s injuries haunted him wherever he went, and the same was the case with the Boston Red Sox, but he managed to play on a very high level, he had hit 24 home runs in 1995, making the last one in this year his 300th overall home run. Throughout the 1996 year he had hit 26 home runs.

In 1997 he was traded back to where he had started, the Oakland Athletics, but again his season ended short, with him only participating in 26 games. His last four years in the MLB Canseco spent with the Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Devil Rays. These contracts also influenced his net worth.

Overall, his career was quite successful. He made 462 home runs, which put him in 32nd place of all time MLB players, one of only 11 players in history to reach this mark 400 runs or more, and with 200 stolen bases.

Adding to his net worth, Canseco has also tried himself as a martial artist and a boxer. He has also appeared on television in several shows, including the animated TV series “The Simpsons” and TV show “Late Show with David Letterman”.

His personal life is filled with controversy. In 2005 he admitted that he had used substances which were not allowed in professional sport, with several other baseball players like Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro and Juan González. He even wrote a book “Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant ‘Roids, Smash Hits & How Baseball Got Big” which describes his involvement in the use of steroids.

He has a daughter, Josie, with his ex-wife Jessica; they were married from 1996 to 1999. He has another divorce behind himself, from Esther Haddad with whom he was married from 1988 to 1992.
