According to a twitter report from Ken Rosenthal, the Braves are in on free agent outfielder Cody Ross.
I predicted yesterday that Ross would be the left fielder for the team, and while I don’t “love” signing him I also don’t “hate” it either. I kind of like it, actually. What you can expect out of him is essetially a .320 OBP with some power and average defense. That’s not great, but it’s also not terrible.
What makes it appealing to me is his career 141 wRC+ against lefties. That would make him the best hitter on the roster against southpaws. If he stinks against righties, the Braves still have Juan Francisco to put in against them at least on occasion. Those are my quick thoughts, you guys tell me what you think, do you like targeting Cody Ross in free agency?
