Yankees Interested In Cody Ross

The Yankees interest in Scott Hairston has been known, but now Jon Morosi tweeted that they are interested in Cody Ross as well.

Ross, like Hairston, would fit the role of a right-handed outfielder. Last season Cody hit .267/.326/.481 overall, and .295/.373/.636 vs. left-handed pitchers. He mainly plays either of the corner outfield positions, where he's an average fielder, but he's seen time in center field lately as well, although he's below average out there. The flexibility makes him an attractive option though, especially when you consider the Yankees already have two guys that can field in center (Granderson and Gardner).
