Cody Ross meets with Texas Rangers

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

Free agent outfielder Cody Ross met with the Texas Rangers on Tuesday.

Free agent outfielder Cody Ross visited with the Texas Rangers on Tuesday, according to a report by Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com.

Rosenthal reports that Ross traveled to Texas and had dinner with club officials, manager Ron Washington and general manager Jon Daniels.

Ross spent the 2012 season with the Boston Red Sox and recorded a .267 batting average with 22 home runs, 34 doubles and 81 RBI in 528 plate appearances. Coming off consecutive one-year contracts (he earned $3 million with the Red Sox last season and $6.3 million with the San Francisco Giants in 2011), Ross is reportedly seeking a three-year contract.

According to reports, he views Minnesota Twins outfielder Josh Willingham (three-years, $21 million) and Colorado Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer (three-years, $31.5 million) as comparable players and is interested in receiving a deal similar to the ones they received when they were free agents.

It is believed that the Red Sox are still interested in Ross. In addition, the Atlanta Braves, Baltimore Orioles, Philadelphia Phillies, New York Mets and New York Yankees are believed to be interested, as well.
