Free agent outfielder Cody Ross has received “most of his serious interest” from the Boston Red Sox, Philadelphia Phillies, Detroit Tigers and Seattle Mariners, reports Jim Bowden of ESPN. Cody Ross getting most of his serious interest from Phillies, Red Sox, Tigers and Mariners — JIM BOWDEN (@JimBowdenESPNxm) November 14, 2012 Now that the Tigers have signed fellow free agent outfielder Torii Hunter it’s probably safe to check them off the list of teams targeting Ross. However, the Red Sox, Phillies and Mariners all appear to be in the market for outfielders and offense. The Phillies could use at least one, if not two, outfielders this winter after trading away Hunter Pence and Shane Victorino last summer. Philadelphia has been tied to center fielders, such as B.J. Upton and Michael Bourn, but they’re also reportedly in on corner outfielders such as Ross and former Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton. The Mariners, who owned one of the league’s worst offenses last season, are said to be in the market for bats. They’ve been considered one of the teams to watch for Hamilton, but if his asking price is driven up too much they could turn to a cheaper alternative such as Ross. Boston, Ross’ former club, has interest in re-signing the 31-year-old. For his part, Ross has said that he’d be willing to return to the Red Sox, though his main objective is signing with a team that gives him an opportunity to win.
