Vladimir Guerrero joins independent league
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2013) The independent Atlantic League's rich got richer Thursday, as last season's champion, Long Island, signed former major-league outfielder Vladimir Guerrero. FoxSports.com first reported the deal.
Guerrero has not played in the majors since 2011, but rumors of a comeback attempt have been circulating for weeks. He was seeking a minor-league deal in spring training, and will likely have to show he still has something left playing semi-pro ball before any MLB teams will come knocking.
Guerrero is 38 and last batted .290 with 13 home runs in 145 games for the Orioles.
