Vladimir Guerrero has been placed on the "Inactive" list for the Long Island Ducks. According to Ducks General Manager Mike Pfaff, he's attending to personal matters in the Dominican Republic, and once he arrives on Long Island he will activate him.
The Ducks also acquired Matt Fleishman from the Washington Wild Things of the Frontier League in exchange for a player to be named later, and signed pitcher Rusty Jones for the 2013 season.
Fleishman, a Commack, NY native will begin his second season with the Ducks. Last year he played 17 games for the Ducks after finishing his career at Villanova University. He hit .238 with 3 RBI, in 42 plate appearances.
Rusty Jones joins the Ducks after playing his entire career in the independent leagues. He has a career 15-16 record with a 4.21 ERA in 280 innings pitched. Last season he had 4-1 record with a 2.44 ERA for the Edinburg Roadrunners of the North American League.
