According to Todd Zolecki , the Phillies have signed free agent outfielder Ross Gload to a two-year contract.

Gload, 33, hit .261/.329/.400 with six home runs and 30 RBI in 230 at-bats last season with the Florida Marlins, who declined his $2.6 million option for 2010.

The left-handed hitting corner outfielder also plays first base, and will be the final piece added to the Phillies' bench. Next up on the to-do list: strengthening the bullpen and rotation.
