Report: 'Phillies 'intensify' pursuit of Cody Ross

The Red Sox signed Shane Victorino to man right field next season, but Cody Ross still out there on the free agent market.

His market is reportedly starting to heat up.

According to Ken Rosenthal, the Phillies are "intensifying" their efforts to bring the former Red Sox outfielder to Philadelphia.  He has also been courted by Seattle this offseason.

The 32-year-old hit .267 with 22 home runs and 81 RBI last season for the Red Sox.
