Ducks Signings: A source reports the Long Island Ducks have brought back left-handed pitchers Matt Beech and Bill Pulsipher. They are going to be activated for the next series in Camden for the Ducks. – Mike Ashmore.

Update: Here’s some information from the team’s press release: Pulsipher spent the 2005 season in the St. Louis Cardinals system and, after earning a spot on the Opening Day roster out of spring training, became the third Duck in franchise annals to make it back to the big leagues after playing on Long Island. In his last start, on September 3, he tied a Memphis Redbirds (AAA, Cardinals) record with 15 strikeouts in a victory over Albuquerque. Last season with the Ducks, Pulsipher registered a 9-5 regular season mark before going 2-0 in the playoffs. He was the winning pitcher in Long Island’s championship-clinching victory over Camden last September 26.

The 33-year old Beech spent the 2005 season with the Erie Seawolves (AA, Tigers) of the Eastern League. In 2004 with the Ducks, he went 3-1 in six starts before being inked by the Boston Red Sox. His 2004 highlights with Long Island included a one run, two-hit complete game against Pennsylvania on June 1, where he tied a franchise record by striking out 13 batters. Originally drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the seventh round of the 1994 draft out of Houston, the lefty has spent parts of three different seasons in the big leagues, making a combined 53 starts for the Philadelphia Phillies.

Nashua “trades” for a pitcher: To complete an earlier deal, in which I guess Ricardo Cordova was sent over there, the New Jersey Jackals send P Marty Janzen to Nashua.
