Braves interested in Cody Ross

The Atlanta Braves are interested in signing free agent outfielder Cody Ross, according to Jon Paul Morosi.

With Torii Hunter likely choosing between the Detroit Tigers and Texas Rangers, the Atlanta Braves have their sights set on a different free agent outfielder. Per FOX Sports' Jon Paul Morosi, the Braves are interested in signing Cody Ross, who spent the 2012 season with the Boston Red Sox.

As Morosi notes, if the Braves sign Ross, it would allow the team to move Martin Prado to third base. In essence, Ross would be replacing Chipper Jones in the lineup.

Ross hit .267/.326/.481 with the Red Sox in 2012, belting 22 home runs while driving in 81 runs in 130 games. In just 132 at bats against lefties, Ross hit .295/.373/.636 with 12 home runs. Ross' three-year split against lefties, totaling 355 at bats, sits at .276/.352/.530.

Aside from the Red Sox, Ross has also spent time with the Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles Dodgers, Cincinnati Reds, Florida Marlins and San Francisco Giants. Ross was a key component of San Francisco's 2010 World Series winning team, hitting .294/.390/.686 with five home runs in 15 postseason games.
