Sources: Red Sox, Ross reach agreement
Ross told The Associated Press in a text message late Monday that the deal won't be finalized until he takes a physical. He expressed his thanks on Twitter to San Francisco fans and wrote: ''Looking fwd to meeting the (hash)redsoxnation fans!!''
Ross, 31, will give the Sox a right-handed alternative in right field and also provide insurance in left if Carl Crawford fails to recover from wrist surgery by Opening Day.
Ross, the MVP of the 2010 National League Championship Series, batted .240/.325/.405 for the Giants last season, with 14 home runs and 52 RBI.
He is a career .282/.349/.563 hitter against left-handed pitching.
