The Red Sox and potential free-agent outfielder Cody Ross are moving closer to a new contract, according to a source in a report by Rob Bradford of WEEI.com.

According to a source familiar with the negotiations, contract talks between the Red Sox and outfielder Cody Ross have gained "some momentum."

Ross, who hit .267 with 22 home runs and played all three outfield positions in 2012, had preliminary in-season discussions toward a new contract. The team did not formally offer an extension to his one-year, $3 million contract that ends five days after the World Series ends.

The former Marlin was considered to be one of baseball's best bargains of 2012 and one of the Red Sox's most reliable performers in a tumultuous season.
