2012 MLB Free Agency: David Ross a potential target of Yankees

Kevin C. Cox

David Ross could be on the New York Yankees' radar this offseason.

David Ross could be leaving Atlanta as a free agent this winter, and it appears that the New York Yankees are one team that have interest in signing Ross to a contract.

Ross has served as Atlanta's backup catcher since 2009, and has been an asset to the Braves throughout his four-year stint with the team. Ross has posted bWAR totals of 1.9, 1.1, 1.1 and 0.8 for Atlanta since '09 -- which is fairly impressive, given that he has never received more than 176 at bats as a member of the Braves.

In addition to the Braves, Ross has also played for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Pittsburgh Pirates, San Diego Padres, Cincinnati Reds, and Boston Red Sox during his 11-year MLB career.

Ross hit .256/.321/.449 with the Braves in 2012, while slugging nine home runs.

Per Ken Rosenthal, the Yankees are only interested in signing one of Ross or Russell Martin this winter, as the Bronx Bombers have in-house candidates for New York's backup job next season.
