Braves Rumors: Atlanta Interested in Cody Ross

The Atlanta Braves are interested in free agent outfielder Cody Ross, reports Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports, who’s also being pursued by several other teams, including the Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox.

The Atlanta Braves, looking to add an outfield bat, have interest in signing free-agent outfielder Cody Ross, according to a major-league source.

The Braves have been seeking an outfielder and an additional bat as they prepare for life without Michael Bourn and Chipper Jones. While it’s certain that Jones, who retired after the season, won’t be back, there’s still a chance that Bourn could re-sign with the club. However, Atlanta isn’t expected to get into a bidding war for the center fielder’s services.

The Braves were also eyeing veteran outfielder Torii Hunter, but the slugger is reportedly more interested in joining an American League club.

Ross signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Red Sox last winter. Following his impressive 2012 campaign, he’s in line to receive a deal in the three-year, $25-$30 million range.
