MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Marlins acquired infielder Jonah Bride from Oakland for cash on Tuesday after the Athletics designated him for assignment last week.

Bride, 28, has two years of experience in the majors, with a career batting average of .192 in 98 big league games. He hit .305 with 13 home runs and five stolen bases in the minors last season and has played first, second and third base.

The Athletics designated Bride for assignment Friday to make room on their 40-man roster after signing free agent left-hander Alex Wood to a one-year contract and acquiring right-hander Ross Stripling from the Giants.

To open a spot for Bride, the Marlins designated infielder Jordan Groshans for assignment.
