Player Notes
Cubs signed C David Ross to a two-year, $5 million contract.

Advice: The deal was agreed to last Friday and then finalized Tuesday evening after Ross passed his pre-signing physical. Ross has batted just .197/.276/.374 in 287 plate appearances since the beginning of the 2013 season, but the Cubs clearly value his defense and veteran leadership. The 37-year-old should be Miguel Montero's primary backup in 2015.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that David Ross has agreed to a two-year, $5 million contract with the Cubs

Advice: CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported earlier Friday that Ross had signed with the Padres but then later retracted it. Ross has batted just .197/.276/.374 over the last two seasons, but his leadership and ability to handle a pitching staff is valued. Signing Ross to be Miguel Montero's backup now allows the Cubs to field offers for Welington Castillo.

David Ross told MLB Network Radio in an interview Friday that he does not have a deal with the Padres.

Advice: And CBS Sports' Jon Heyman has retracted his earlier report about Ross agreeing to terms with San Diego. It's possible Ross could still wind up with the Padres, but Heyman says he's considering the Cubs, as well.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that David Ross will sign with the Padres.

Advice: Well, of course they are. The Padres already have two viable catchers in Derek Norris and Tim Federowicz and they now have a third. Federowicz is out of options, so it would seem another trade is coming. Ross has batted just .197/.276/.374 over the last two seasons, but his leadership and ability to handle a pitching staff is valued.

According to WEEI's Rob Bradford, free agent catcher David Ross is deciding between the Red Sox, Cubs and Padres.

Advice: The Cubs are notable because a signing there would reunite Ross with buddy Jon Lester. Ross is 37 years old and his best days are behind him, but as a veteran backstop on a cheap deal, he provides a nice defensive presence.
