Free Agent Lookback: Cody Ross

Ross wasn’t a marquee free agent when he joined the Red Sox, agreeing to a one-year deal exactly 10 years from today worth $3 million for his age-31 season, but he seemed like a solid addition before he even played his first game for the team. A fourth-round pick in the 1999 MLB Draft, Ross made his major-league debut in 2003 with the Detroit Tigers. He would go on to play for four other teams after that before joining the Red Sox in January of 2012.
