Marlins Interested In David Ross

According to Pete Pelegrin and Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, the Marlins are eyeing Reds’ catcher Dave Ross.  They say the Fish are "less interested" in Yorvit Torrealba, Paul Lo Duca, and Miguel Olivo.

Ross, 31, is hitting .239/.364/.337 in 114 plate appearances this year.  He hasn’t hit for power outside of GAB in recent years.  Ross is able to shut down the running game.  He makes $2.525MM this year and has a $3.5MM club option for ’09 with a $375K buyout.  The Marlins could also consider Reds catcher Paul Bako.
