Report: Phillies Interested in Cody Ross, Vernon Wells
Ruben Amaro may have one more off season move up his sleeve.
According to a CBS Sports report, the Phillies have set their sights on free agent OF Cody Ross and Anaheim Angels OF Vernon Wells.
Ross, who played last season with the Red Sox, is a name that's been linked to the Phillies since the Winter Meetings in Nashville.
Wells, however, comes as a surprise.
The Jon Heyman report says the Angels would like to unload Wells, who after signing Josh Hamilton this month, are deep on their outfield bench.
From Heyman: 'As with any team trading with the Angels for Wells, they'd expect the Angels to pick up the vast majority of the $42 million left on Wells' contract through 2014."
Ross, who won the World Series with the Giants in 2010, was awarded the NLCS MVP when the Giants beat the Phillies in six games.
Ross is reportedly seeking a 3-year $25 million contract.
The Phillies batting order is all set, although who will bat fifth behind Ryan Howard remains a question.
Ruben Amaro and the Phillies introduced newly acquired Michael Young at a press conference this afternoon, where Amaro said a double platoon in the outfield is a possibility.
The Phillies have also been linked to Nick Swisher.
