Marlins acquire Gload

The Marlins addressed their need for a lefty bat off the bench by acquiring first baseman Ross Gload from the Royals for a player to be named, according to an MLB source.

Gload broke in with the Cubs in 2000, and he been with the Royals from 2007-08.

With the Royals last year, Gload hit .273 with three homers and 37 RBIs in 122 games.

Gload was in line to back up Mike Jacobs in Kansas City.
