Cody Ross Signs With Boston Red Sox, According To Report

Free agent outfielder Cody Ross has signed with the Boston Red Sox, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. The former San Francisco Giant hit the market after hitting 14 home runs and 52 RBIs with a .240 average and an OPS of .730 during the regular season.

Ross had been in talks with the Red Sox earlier this week, after Boston cleared cap space by sending shortstop Marco Scutaro to the Colorado Rockies for a minor league pitcher. The move cleared up roughly $8 million to use on either an outfielder or another pitcher.

Ross could fill in nicely should Carl Crawford miss any time with a left wrist injury. He could ultimately become a fixture in right field if/when Crawford comes back fully healthy. Ross is hitting .294/.390/.686 for his career spent over seven years in Detroit, Los Angeles, Cincinnati and San Francisco.
