According to Rob Bradford of WEEI in Boston, the Yankees are interested in Cody Ross and requested his medical history. Now as we all know from what's been happening so far this season, the Yankees only seem to be interested in giving out one-year deals. Ross was looking for a three-year deal from the Red Sox who so far have only offered him two years. So this could be one of those "throwing a name out there to see if people will bite" sort of thing.
I guess that means I fell for it.
Anyway, Ross spent the bulk of his career - 2006-2010 - with the Florida Marlins. He was traded from Florida to San Francisco in 2010 and won a World Series title with the Giants. He was signed to a one-year deal with Boston batted 267/.326/.481 with 22 homers and 81 RBI in 2012.
