David Ross has agreed on a two-year, $5 million contract with the Chicago Cubs. There was reports that Ross was going to sign with the Padres, but those turned out to be false. He will join former teammate Jon Lester in Chicago. Ross is a great backup catcher and will play a pivotal role on the team especially in terms of leadership.
Sources: David Ross to #Cubs, two years, $5M.

David Ross had one of his worse seasons of his career last year, hitting .184 with seven homers and 15 RBIs in 171 at bats. Ross is a great veteran and is good with young pitchers, which the Padres have plenty of.
