PHOENIX (AP) - Cody Ross and the Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to a three-year contract with a club option for 2016.
The team announced the deal Saturday.
Ross, who turns 32 on Sunday and lives in nearby Scottsdale, adds to the abundance of outfielders on the Arizona roster, leading to speculation a trade might be coming. He batted .267 with 22 home runs and 81 RBIs last season for the Boston Red Sox. He's a career .267 hitter in nine big league seasons.
The addition gives the Diamondbacks four veteran outfielders - Ross, Justin Upton, Gerardo Parra and Jason Kubel - along with two youngsters the organization has deemed ready for the majors: Adam Eaton and A.J. Pollock.
