The Colorado Rockies are currently in contract talks with outfielder Cody Ross, according to a tweet from Buster Olney of ESPN.

Ross, 31, hit .240/.325/.405 with 14 home runs and 52 RBI for the San Francisco Giants last season. His best season came in 2009 when he hit .270/.321/.469 with 24 home runs and 90 RBI for the Florida Marlins, however the right-handed outfielder has struggled since he was acquired by the Giants in late 2010. If signed, Ross will join a crowded Colorado outfield with Carlos Gonzalez, Dexter Fowler, and recently signed Michael Cuddyer.
