Non-roster invitees announced

In the past the Marlins have had success with non-roster invitees emerging as key contributors. The list includes Jorge Cantu, Clay Hensley and Kiko Calero.

Perhaps they will strike big with some players in 2011.

On Tuesday, the Marlins annouced the signings of seven six-year free agents, who will be at Spring Training as non-roster invitees.

Signed are left-handers Darin Downs and Victor Garate. Right-hander Frank Mata also will be in camp.

Ruben Gotay, a switch-hitting infielder, is among the group who has big league experience. Tim Torres (infielder), outfielder-first baseman Josh Kroeger and outfielder Chris Lubanski also have signed.

Lubanski will be a candidate for a left-handed bat off the bench.
