More Camp Invitees

According to Larry Beinfest the Marlins have invited their final acquisitions to Spring Training.

The Marlins signed right-handers Matt Herges and Eddie Gaillard to minor league contracts and invited them to spring training. Gaillard has made 30 major league appearances over three seasons (1997-99) with the Tigers and Devil Rays. A veteran of seven big-league seasons, Herges split 2005 with the Giants and Diamondbacks.

I don't know much about Eddie Gaillard other than he is a relief pitcher who had some knee problems last year.

Herges, if he can return to form, could vie for a setup role out of the pen.  He also has some experience closing.  Plus, he has the advantage of playing for Montreal the last year when Loria was the owner of the club.  So if worse comes to worse, he can explain to the younger players that Hiram Bithorn Stadium in Puerto Rico may be in their future.

Welcome aboard guys.
