Latest Update David Ross Choosing Between CHC, BOS, AZ and ATL Wed Dec, 10, 02:52 AM
Has outstanding defensive skills, good game-calling ability and a plus arm behind the plate. Has a lot of home-run pop in his bat. Is a sound leader.
Flaws: : A free swinger, he strikes out far too much and doesn't consistently make enough contact to become a better hitter. Is also streaky and a little injury-prone.
Ross can send a percentage of his check to Astros' catching guru Mike Fast, who's research into the importance of receiving skills has increased the market for veteran finger-wavers who can get extra strikes behind the plate. The Cubs are seen as a potential fit considering Ross and recently signed ace Jon Lester are close friends and former battery mates. They're also thought to be in the market for "veteran presence," something Ross embodies as well. He's expected to make a decision soon. Analyst: Spencer Silva
Prior to being ejected he was 1-4 with an RBI and 3 strikeouts. Analyst: Ben Diamond
You just cannot argue ball and strike calls. The lesson needs to be learned by every player, and here is hoping that Ross will not make the same mistake again. Ross is the back up catcher, with Christian Vasquez getting most of the starts behind the plate, so this hurts his playing time stats.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
He's close to returning, but in truth, it's not really that big a deal in the fantasy realm. He can show a little bit of pop at times, but there's a reason the 37-year old has always remained a back-up catcher.Analyst: Howard Bender
