Royals - Acquired Gload
Kansas City Royals - Acquired 1B/OF Ross Gload from the Chicago White Sox for P Andy Sisco.
Gload’s always been a player who deserved a fair chance in the majors and moving to the Royals increases the chances he’ll get it. The Royals are picking him up mainly for short-term needs, however, as the organization has a good amount of talent on that end of the defensive spectrum. While the projection looks high to the eye, Gload’s hit well when he’s had regular playing time and he’s a career 350/444 hitter in the majors when not pinch-hitting. Gload hasn’t shown a platoon split in the majors (in fact, he’s had a reverse one) and doesn’t have much of a glove anywhere. The Sox offense would have been even better if they had used him over Scott Podsednik in left more. The Royals screwed the pooch with Matt Diaz, so here’s hoping they don’t make the same mistake with Ross Gload.
Sisco followed up an impressive 2005 with a very unimpressive 2006 season. He’ll always walk too many batters and allow a few too many homers than one would like, but he’s not a 7.10 ERA pitcher. Like most relievers, his ability is somewhere in the middle.
