Marlins look to rebound

The Marlins have dropped two straight and look to even their three-game set with the Phillies on Wednesday at Sun Life Stadium.

Anibal Sanchez, coming off a one-hit shutout over the Giants at AT&T Park last Thursday, takes the mound for Florida. Kyle Kendrick gets the nod for Philadelphia.

Gload heading to Phillies

Add left-handed bat off the bench to the Marlins’ needs.

Late Tuesday night, veteran Ross Gload agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Phillies.

A free agent, the 33-year-old first baseman was an effective pinch-hitter and spot starter in his lone season with the Marlins. Gload had 21 pinch-hits and 15 pinch-hit RBIs, both Marlins records for a season.

The left-handed hitting Gload was also a strong defensive first baseman, and he can also play both corner outfield spots.

In 125 games, Gload batted .261 with six home runs and 30 RBIs. He even was an emergency pitcher on May 22, tossing one scoreless inning against Tampa Bay.

The Marlins acquired Gload and cash from the Royals on April 1 for a player to be named, who became right-hand prospect Eric Basurto.

Gload broke in with the Cubs in 2000, and he also played for the Rockies and White Sox.

In Philadelphia, the likely will fill the pinch-hit role that Matt Stairs held.

The Marlins had a two-year, $1.9 million offer on the table for Gload, who also attracted interest from the Braves.

In early November, the Marlins turned down a $2.6 million club option on Gload, making him a free agent.

4) Cantu, 3B

Nick Johnson making progress

Some of the agility drills that gave Nick Johnson trouble a few days ago are coming more easily now.

That’s an encouraging sign as the Marlins remain hopeful their veteran first baseman can return in a week or so.

Johnson went on the disabled list with a right hamstring strain on Tuesday night, retroactive to Aug. 17. He is eligible to be reinstated on Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Braves at Land Shark Stadium.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez is skeptical that Johnson will be ready by then. Most likely, the Marlins will have Johnson play in a few rehab games. The Minor League season ends on Sept. 7, so it would have to be sometime late next week before he is in games.

“It’s always a nice test to get the adrenaline pumping,” Gonzalez said of players seeing rehab action.

Johnson on Friday showed improvement doing jumping and jogging drills.

“It’s getting better,” Gonzalez said.

With Johnson out, the Marlins have been using Ross Gload extensively at first base. On Friday night against the Padres, Wes Helms started at first.
