That move might be coming soon. Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Phillies are increasing their pursuit of free agent corner outfielder, and Phillies nemesis, Cody Ross.
“Sources: #Phillies intensifying pursuit of Cody Ross. Other teams also being more aggressive. #Mariners among those that have shown interest.”
Ross, who turns 32 on December 23rd, had a productive year for the lowly Red Sox. Ross hit .267 with 22 homeruns and 81 RBI with a .326 on base percentage. Many Phillies fans remember Ross as the guy who killed the Phillies in the 2010 NLCS as he took home NLCS MVP honors for the San Francisco Giants.
