Outfielder Cody Ross was the latest free-agent to meet with the Texas Rangers, sitting down with club officials on Tuesday, a source confirmed.

Ross, who turns 32 this weekend, hit .267 with 22 homers and had a .481 slugging percentage with the Boston Red Sox in 2012. He’s a right-handed hitter (but throws left) and played mainly right field last year, starting 90 games at that spot. But he also started 19 games in left field and three in center.
Ross is a career .262 hitter in parts of nine seasons in the big leagues with the Tigers, Dodgers, Reds, Marlins, Giants and most recently, the Red Sox.

Interestingly, Ross has just 11 career at-bats at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington and all of them were during a July series this past season. He was 1-for-11 with a run scored. The lone hit was an infield single off Tanner Scheppers.

FoxSports.com's Ken Rosenthal first reported the meeting between Ross, his representatives and the Rangers.
