Description: Diamondbacks outfielder Cody Ross (calf) is likely to start the season on the disabled list, according to Nick Piecoro of azcentral.com.
Insight: Ross says he's still aiming for Opening Day but Piecoro said it sounds like the Diamondbacks are leaning towards the DL. With Adam Eaton sidelined for 6-8 weeks with an elbow injury and Ross headed for the DL, look for Jason Kubel and Gerardo Parra to play every day in April.

Description: The New York Post's Mark Feinsand reports Arizona has signed outfielder Cody Ross to a three-year deal worth $26 million.
Insight: Arizona didn't really need another outfielder with Jason Kubel, Justin Upton and Gerardo Parra already on the roster, so now the team could look to unload either Upton or Kubel in a trade later this offseason. Ross is hitting .206 in 22 career games at Arizona's Chase Field.
12/19/2012 9:52:00 PM
Description: Ken Rosenthal from Fox Sports reports that outfielder Cody Ross met with the Rangers on Tuesday.
Insight: Ross has drawn interest from many teams this offseason including the Braves, Mariners, Mets, Orioles, Phillies and Red Sox as well as Texas. He's a righthanded power bat who could thrive in the right environment.
12/15/2012 7:15:00 PM
Description: Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports is reporting that the Phillies are aggressively pursuing free agent outfielder Cody Ross.
Insight: Now that Josh Hamilton and B.J. Upton have found new homes, the market is starting to open up for the remaining free agent outfielders including Ross, Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn. Seattle and New York have also been linked to Ross though the Yankees might pull out of the running now that Ichiro Suzuki has re-signed.
11/28/2012 4:50:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Buster Olney has heard from sources that the Red Sox have the upper hand in landing free agent outfielder Cody Ross.

Description: Jon Paul Morosi from Fox Sports reports that the Orioles could be interested in signing free agent outfielder Cody Ross.
Insight: This would fill the vacancy in left field left by Nate McLouth (free agent). Ross put together one of his best seasons in 2012, hitting .267 with 22 HR and 81 RBI in 130 games for the Red Sox. Ross is supposedly looking for a deal worth $25 million over three years.
11/4/2012 3:20:00 PM
Description: Outfielder Cody Ross, who officially became a free agent on Saturday, implied that the Red Sox haven't made much of an effort to re-sign him.
Insight: Boston could have given Ross a one-year qualifying offer like they did to David Ortiz but that opportunity has now passed. One wonders if by passing on Ross, the Red Sox could be saving up to make a bid for former AL MVP Josh Hamilton.
10/4/2012 3:57:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Buster Olney said Thursday that the Red Sox are looking to re-sign Cody Ross before he becomes a free agent later this offseason.
Insight: Despite the turbulent environment he had to play in for much of the season, Ross was still able to be fairly productive for the Sox in 2012, contributing 22 HR and 81 RBI in 130 games played. He should continue to be a low-risk, high-reward fantasy option during the 2013 campaign.

Description: Boston outfielder/DH Cody Ross' bat has gone cold in September. Ross is hitting just .239 this month, including 3-for-19 in his last five games.

Description: Boston outfielder/DH Cody Ross won't start Sunday night's series finale against the Yankees.

8/19/2012 6:52:00 PM
Description: According to Boston Globe writer Nick Cafardo, the Red Sox are interested in bringing outfielder Cody Ross back for another season.
Insight: Ross (.272, 18 HR, 60 RBI) has been a good fit in Boston because of Fenway Park's hitter-friendly dimensions in left field and it looks like he'll have a chance to surpass his career-high in home runs (24) later this season. The 31-year-old outfielder signed with the team this past offseason on a one-year, $3 million deal.
8/19/2012 10:14:00 AM
Description: Unlike his teammate Adrian Gonzalez, Red Sox outfielder Cody Ross has never hit well against Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda. Ross is just 6-for-25 (.240) with a .680 OPS against the former Dodgers righty.
Insight: Ross and Gonzalez both played in the NL West against Kuroda for several years, but now all three are in the AL East. While Gonzalez has had success against the righty, Ross has not so sit him down Sunday.
