The Mets are "making a run at signing" free agent outfielder Cody Ross, reports ESPN's Jerry Crasnick (Twitter link).  Ross would give the Mets depth at all three outfield positions, join ex-Giants teammate Andres Torres in a center field platoon or join Scott Hairston as right-handed complements to the left-handed hitting Lucas Duda in right field. The Braves, Rockies, Reds and Athletics have all shown some interest in Ross this winter, though the latter two teams have already largely addressed their outfield needs.  We heard last month that the Rockies would look at Ross only if Seth Smith was dealt, so now that Smith has been sent to Oakland, Colorado could have renewed interest. Ross, 31, hit .240/.325/.405 in 461 plate appearances for the Giants last season.  He was reportedly looking for a two-year contract, but with his market thinning out, he may have to settle for a one-year pact.
