Report: Carlos Zambrano signs with independent Atlantic League's Long Island Ducks

Carlos Zambrano threw a no-hitter, made three All-Star teams and earned more than $100 million as a major leaguer. The next pitch the former Chicago Cub and Miami Marlin throws will come on a much smaller stage.
According to Carrie Muskat of MLB.com, the temperamental Zambrano — who pitched for Venezuela in this year’s World Baseball Classic — is taking his talents to the independent leagues.

Being stuck in the Atlantic League isn’t all bad news for Zambrano, though. Just last year, both Roger Clemens and Scott Kazmir pitched for the league’s Sugar Land Skeeters, and Kazmir is back in the bigs with the Cleveland Indians — though things aren't going exceptionally well for him.
