Red Sox Sign Dave Ross

THURSDAY: According to Ken Rosenthal, the Red Sox signed Ross to a minor league deal.

WEDNESDAY:  Ross became a free agent today, and the Phillies made contact to express their interest. 

MONDAY, 8:13pm: Rosenthal has added the Red Sox to the mix for Ross.

3:27pm: According to Ken Rosenthal, the Phillies are interested in recently-released catcher Dave Ross.  Rosenthal says they could send him to the minors and bring him up when rosters expand.  The Marlins seemingly chose Paul Lo Duca over Ross earlier this year.

The 31 year-old backstop hit .231/.381/.366 in 173 plate appearances this year.  He flashed prodigious power in ’06, but not much since then.  Ross threw out 29% of attempted basestealers this year and 41% in ’07.
