Red Sox Targeting Marlins Outfielder Cody Ross, Reliever Leo Nunez

The Red Sox’ efforts to strengthen their outfield and bullpen continue, with the most recent targets being Florida Marlins outfielder Cody Ross, and closer Leo Nunez.

Nunez is having a breakout season, with a career low in ERA and a career high in strikeout rate. Since the closer is still under team control for two more years, it’s likely he would come with a high cost.

Cody Ross, on the other hand, is not having a particularly impressive season, with a .740 OPS thanks largely to a power drought. He plays all three outfield positions, but doesn’t really have the ability to cover center field.
