Red Sox Rumors: Boston Favorites to Sign Cody Ross?

Yesterday we learned that catcher/first baseman Mike Napoli was the Boston Red Sox “No. 1 target,” but friends of free agent Cody Ross believe the team is in the lead in negotiations for the outfielder, reports Buster Olney of ESPN.

Ross is reportedly seeking a three-year contract this winter, and Olney notes that the Red Sox are believed to be negotiating a three-year pact with Ross. However, he adds that there haven’t been new talks in the last few days.

At the end of last season, Ross made it clear that he would be interested in re-signing with the Red Sox. While winning was said to be his priority, there’s no doubt he experienced success calling Fenway Park home and seemed to enjoy his first season in Boston.

The Red Sox also expressed interest in retaining Ross, but they’ve checked in on other free agents as well, including Napoli and outfielder Nick Swisher.
