Report: Ross to Cubs

David Ross and Jon Lester may be together again.

The Cubs have reportedly signed Ross to a two-year, $5 million contract, according to FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal.

In 13 seasons, Ross has a .233 career batting average. What’s key is that in 29 games over two seasons catching Lester with Boston, the lefty pitcher has a 2.77 ERA with 192 strikeouts over 195 innings.

And, in case you forgot, the Cubs just signed Lester to a six-year, $155 million contract.

Ross caught five of Lester’s first seven starts this past season, and the lefty posted a 2.19 ERA with 43 strikeouts and had walked five.

“When you mix his stuff with my brains, it’s awesome,” Ross said at the time.
