CENTRAL ISLIP -

The Long Island Ducks make their home debut on Friday, and a former Mets All-Star could join them for it.

The Ducks have signed closer Francisco "K-Rod" Rodriguez.

He's been trying to save his career after flaming out with the Tigers last season.

Rodriguez spent three seasons with the Mets before being traded in 2011 after punching his girlfriend inside Citi Field.  

He has 437 career saves.
