It finally became official yesterday.
To make room on the club's 40-man roster for Gonzalez, right-handed pitcher Marcos Carvajal was designated for assignment.
Gonzalez came to terms on a one-year, $2 million contract on Jan. 31.
With the Marlins, Gonzalez's role will be as a backup and pinch-hitter.
Willingham, a 28-year-old, remains the starting left fielder.
We have been over the Gonzalez signing many times before, so I won't belabor the point.
Welcome aboard Gonzo.
