According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, the Mets are interested in OF Cody Ross, and are “making a run at signing him.”
Ross, 31, hit .240 with 14 home runs and 52 RBI in 405 at-bats over 121 games with the Giants last season. He’s a .261 career hitter with a .323 OBP with 100 home runs and 371 RBI in eight seasons with the Giants, Marlins, Dodgers, Reds, and Tigers. He’s hit .282 with a .349 OBP against left-handed pitching and .253 with a .313 OBP against right-handed pitching in his career.
He hit .294 with five home runs and ten RBI in 51 at-bats during the 2010 postseason.
Michael Baron: Ross is a right-handed hitter who is capable of playing all three outfield positions and could serve in a platoon should either Andres Torres or Lucas Duda struggle against left-handed pitching.
