According to an industry source, the Red Sox have agreed to terms with catcher David Ross on a two-year contract worth $6.2 million. The deal is pending a physical for the 35-year-old, who played the last four seasons with the Braves. The deal was first reported by FoxSports.com.
It is unclear what this means for returning catchers Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Ryan Lavarnway, although FoxSports.com quotes a source as saying the right-handed hitting Ross will be "more than a backup but not a starter."
Ross, who played briefly with the Red Sox in 2008 (8 games) before being released, hit .256 with a .770 OPS while backing up Brian McCann in 2012. He was playing off a two-year, $3.25 million deal.
