The Diamondbacks moved in with stealth like precision to sign Ross

The Arizona Diamondbacks and Cody Ross reached an agreement on a new three-year deal worth $26 million.

The new deal includes a club option for 2016 with a $1 million buyout.

Ross made $3 million last year and hit .267/.326/.481 with 22 home runs, 81 RBI and an .807 OPS in 130 games with the Boston Red Sox.

The move marks a return to the NL West for Ross, who was a postseason star for the Giants in 2010.

Ross is a career .262 hitter with 122 homers and 452 RBIs in 887 games.

Ross had been linked to many teams this off-season including the Red Sox and Rangers.

Ross was said to be holding out for third year on his new deal, and the Diamondbacks moved in with stealth like precision to sign the soon to be 32-year-old free-agent outfielder.

Ross will join an outfield that includes Justin Upton Adam Eaton, Gerardo Parra and Eric Hinske and  Jason Kubel .

You can expect the rumors to begin very soon about which player may be traded.

The team is on record as saying that Upton would not be traded, so it’s possible that Kubel may become part of that discussion.
