Braves want to re-sign David Ross

Dale Zanine-US PRESSWIRE

The backup catcher has been reliable and now could be necessary as Brian McCann recovers from shoulder surgery.

While talk over the status of starting Braves catcher Brian McCann is just one of the topics dominating Atlanta's offseason, there is the matter of backup David Ross, a reliable role player for the Braves who had a huge night for Atlanta (3-for-4, HR, 2 RBI) in their one-game wild-card loss to St. Louis:

Ross has been solid in his role with Atlanta, especially the 2012 season, his fourth in a Braves uniform. He hit .256/.321/.449 with nine home runs in 196 at-bats. The additional motivation for Atlanta to resign Ross is also McCann's health, as shoulder surgery could keep the All-Star from being ready in time for Opening Day. Fox Sports reported on Tuesday that the Braves would pick up the one-year option on McCann's contract.
