CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. (AP) - Vladimir Guerrero has signed with the Long Island Ducks in the independent Atlantic League, and is hoping to get back to the major leagues.
The nine-time All-Star and 2004 AL MVP was last in the majors in 2011 with the Baltimore Orioles.
In 16 major league seasons with four teams, Guerrero batted .318 with 449 home runs and 1,496 RBIs.
The 38-year-old Guerrero says in a statement he is ``very excited to have this opportunity the Long Island Ducks have given me as I try to make it back to the big leagues.''
The Ducks begin their season April 18. They won the Atlantic League championship in 2012.
