Cody Ross signs with the A’s after being released by the Diamondbacks

Cody Ross and the A’s have officially agreed to a deal, adding the veteran to Oakland’s injury wrecked outfield mix.

Ross was released by the Diamondbacks, who ate the remaining $9.5 million on his contract after he hit just .252 with two homers and a .628 OPS in 83 games last season.

Ross was also injured and mediocre in 2013 and he’s 34 years old, so expecting a big turnaround would be wishful thinking. However, if limited to a part-time role primarily versus left-handed pitching he could be productive and the A’s are paying him the MLB minimum.
