Report: Phils Showing Interest In Catcher Ross

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports the Phillies are interested in catcher David Ross, who was released by the Reds. Ross, 31, was hitting .231/.381/.366 with 3 HR and 13 RBI in 173 plate appearances with Cincinnati this season.

I’d place a move like this right there with the Pete LaForest move last season. Why bring in Ross when Jason Jaramillo is giving equal production (.256/.322/.372, 7 HR, 32 RBI) without the cost? And why a backup catcher anyway? There are other pressing needs (right-handed bat to spell Ryan Howard, contact-hitting bench bat) for the offense.
