Braves Sign Dave Ross

FRIDAY: The two-year deal with Ross is official, and it’s believed to be for $3MM.

WEDNESDAY, 8:00pm:’s Mark Bowman says Ross’ two-year deal will be worth about $3.5MM.  Ross says it could be finalized tomorrow.

5:01pm: According to Ken Rosenthal, the Braves are close to a two-year deal with free agent catcher Dave Ross.  He’d serve as Brian McCann‘s backup.  Ross, 32 in March, posted a strong .381 OBP with the Reds this year.  The Astros were also known to be interested, but I imagine Ross jumped when the Braves offered two years.
