Colorado Rockies Rumors: Rockies In Negotiations With Cody Ross, According To Report

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Colorado Rockies are in negotiations with free agent outfielder and ex-San Francisco Giant Cody Ross. As pointed out by Olney, the addition of Ross would give the Rockies added depth in the outfield in the event that they do end up trading outfielder Seth Smith.

Ross, who became a fan favorite in San Francisco during the team's World Series run in 2010, had a down year last season, hitting .240/.325/.405 with 14 home runs in what was the worst full season of his pro career. With that said, it is possible that Ross, an extreme fly ball hitter, could see a bit of a turnaround in the thin air of Colorado. In 25 career games in Coors Field, Ross has hit .313/.353/.588 with 5 home runs.
