Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports the Red Sox have agreed to a two-year deal with David Ross.
The deal is pending a physical, but Ross is set to make $6.2 million over the next two seasons. It's a well-deserved raise for Ross, who is widely considered one of the best backup catchers in the game. The 35-year-old batted .256/.321/.449 with nine home runs in 196 plate appearances with the Braves. He'll likely get more playing time in Boston, but he's not expected to carry the full load behind the plate. However, the signing will allow the Red Sox to use both Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Ryan Lavarnway as potential trade chips.
