Vladimir Guerrero has waited for a team to call upon him. Now it appears the nine-time All-Star will be a Duck.

The veteran outfielder has agreed to join the Long Island Ducks of the independent Atlantic League.

Guerrero, 38, last played in the Major Leagues in 2011, when he logged a .290 average with 13 homers and 63 RBIs in 145 contests for the Orioles. He made a brief cameo with the Blue Jays' Class A and Triple-A affiliates last season before the organization released him in June.

Guerrero captured the 2004 American League Most Valuable Player Award when he batted .337 with 39 homers and 126 RBIs for the Angels in 2004. He spent eight years with the Expos before joining the Angels prior to the '04 campaign. He then spent the 2010 season with the Rangers before heading to Baltimore for a year.

For his career, Guerrero has tallied 449 home runs and totes a .318 average and .379 on-base percentage.
