According to Ken Rosenthal, the Red Sox and Phillies are showing serious interest in former Reds catcher David Ross. Both teams are envisioning Ross as a back up catcher; however, may give it a week before they sign him so he spends as little time in the minors before the rosters expand September 1st. Ross has only played in 52 games this year, batting .231 with a .381 OBP.
He is known for controlling the game very well behind the plate. It showed early on with Cueto and Volquez. Both teams would benefit from him behind the plate.
