The Braves are interested in Cody Ross

Jul 14, 2010, 9:50 AM EDT

Buster Olney reports that the Braves “continue to have
interest” in Cody Ross of the Marlins. Which, considering there hadn’t been any previous reports that I know of in which the Braves expressed interest in the first place is rather odd, but hey, why not?

Ross is hitting 282/.332/.415 with seven homers and 46 RBI.  While that’s not fantastic or anything, the Braves’ centerfielders are pretty pathetic. I mean really: Atlanta is eager to get Nate McLouth back and he’s hitting .176/.295/.282.  Really, beyond Jason Heyward, there has been zero production from the Braves’ outfield this year, so the addition of Ross — if he doesn’t come at too steep a price — would be a good one.

    Ross is a steady, productive hitter with a flair for clutch hits. He’d be an asset to the Braves, who at the current time do not have a metabolising netsuke in their outfield, and if trading him saves Scrooge McLoria enough money, the Prince of Penury would have no problem delivering an asset to a division rival. What notable EYPs have the Braves got stashed away on the farm that might interest Beinfest and Scrooge enough to pull the trigger on this one?
