David Ross and the Braves agree to a two-year extension

Jul 27, 2010, 1:31 PM EDT

David Ross is probably the best backup catcher in baseball. What’s more: he’s pretty cool with being a backup catcher and loves where he’s playing. It makes perfect sense, then, that he and the Braves just agreed to a two-year contract extension.

The terms weren’t announced, but he’s finishing up a two-year, $3 million deal. I imagine there’s a bit of a raise involved given that he’s hit .272/.378/.447 and has thrown out close to half of would-be base stealers.

    Back when he was a semi-regular, he hit for good power and a terrible BA. The power may be gone or on hiatus, but the BA is respectable (great for a backup catcher) and his defense remains outstanding.
    Good if not major signing for Atlanta–which we know pleases you, Craig.
