Sox sign catcher Ross

As I reported in a FanShot earlier this week, the Red Sox have interest in former Reds catcher David Ross and now the report is that they have signed him:

The Red Sox, adding catching help for the stretch drive, have signed David Ross to a minor-league contract, according to major-league sources.

Ross, 31, drew interest from the Red Sox and Phillies after getting released by the Reds. He will report to Class AAA and eventually become the Sox's third catcher behind Jason Varitek and Kevin Cash.

The Sox would need to promote Ross by Aug. 31 to make him eligible for their post-season roster. Ross also could be added for the playoffs if Varitek or Cash were injured.

His numbers don't blow the mind but he knows how to get on-base. He should be a solid third catcher come September. This won't be classified as a "big" move, but it's a very solid one.
