KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Kansas City Royals have traded first baseman and outfielder Ross Gload to the Florida Marlins.

The Royals on Wednesday said they would also get cash considerations, while the Marlins will get a player to be named.

The 32-year-old Gload hit .280 in 22 games for the Royals in spring training. He was acquired from the White Sox in 2006 and hit .273 in a career-high 122 games last season.

Gload was drafted by the Marlins in the 13th round of the 1997 amateur draft. He was traded to the Chicago Cubs in 2000. He's also played for Colorado and the Chicago White Sox.
