Luis Gonzalez is Heading Our Way

Luis Gonzalez signs with the Florida Marlins

Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Marlins have lured Luis Gonzalez with a one-year $2 million deal (including an additional $1 million in incentives).

Gonzalez, 40, is expected to fill a combination of roles, including left field and first base, and serve as a mentor for the Marlins’ younger players.

Interesting that he is saying left field, meaning the Marlins are serious about giving Maybin the starting CF job.

Gonzo has slowed down significantly over the last couple of years but the team is hoping he provides depth and most importantly veteran leadership.
