The Cubs acquired outfielder Terrance Gore from the Kansas City Royals for cash on Wednesday, assigning him to Triple-A Iowa. He'll likely be called up after Sept. 1 and serve as a pinch runner for the stretch run. It's the sort of move the Cubs have made in the past at this time of year. Gore has 309 career steals as a pro -- 21 in the majors in just 14 plate appearances.
