05:25 PM ET 12.22 | The Arizona Diamondbacks continued to stay busy this off-season signing outfielder Cody Ross to a three-year deal worth $26 million. The 32-year-old comes to Arizona after playing last season in Boston, where he hit .267 with 22 home runs and 81 RBIs. Ross is a career .262 hitter in nine major league seasons. The versatile Ross has played all three outfield positions during his career and has catalogued time as a designated hitter which could help Arizona during Interleague play.

Those numbers are sure to come back down without the Monster to help turn routine fly balls into doubles.

ok....next deal.

rangers are about to trade for the d'backs outfielder ,,,KUBEL!!!

December 22, 2012  08:22 PM ET

cody ross would bring versatility in the d'backs lineup, should KUBEL and ROSS use agressive approach on every at bat??? this two guys could become the next bash brothers except no roids allowed!!!

cody ross should use the videos from the green monster as a motivation in every game played in the road,the d'backs would likely giving a poisonless cobra to make ross run a little faster!!!

December 22, 2012  08:29 PM ET

the padres are waiting for either the dodgers or the rangers to throw them a offer for any top starter, should rangers missout bad any top deal?? take a pick in the national west!!!!

December 22, 2012  08:30 PM ET

and the next prospects collector is???the royals? the jays? no!! the rangers all the way home!!

December 22, 2012  08:32 PM ET

the royals are a tough team, in fact royals do have better rotation than the devastated angels rotation, unless the halos would be able to trade vernon wells for hellickson and chris archer, not bad uhh??

December 22, 2012  08:33 PM ET

bourn??doubtfull, this guy its well known but for his speed but can't hit 40 homeruns though...

December 22, 2012  08:49 PM ET

angels would likely feel the pressure from every angle in the big leagues, should pujols continue his passivity in the plate?? hamilton would need to swing less balls and make contact more often in his years with the halos,,,

December 22, 2012  08:51 PM ET

angels could be punchless without morales but then again, what team can overcome a weak rotation?? we still needed another starter the rapid drop in speed on hanson arm could signal red lights in halos rotation no kidding!!

December 22, 2012  08:53 PM ET

unless the angels use 3 regular starters as follows,,weaver/CJ wilson/ vargas/ blaton?? and about richards?? we would need all the help we can get for sure!!!

He did have a swing tailor made for Fenway. I was surprised that the Red Sox played hardball with Ross and opted for Gomes and Victorino instead.
