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.
