While the Boston Red Sox are expected to make several outfielders available, including Daniel Nava and Ryan Sweeney, as injured regulars Carl Crawford and Jacoby Ellsbury return, the club intends to keep Cody Ross, reports Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com.

Teams asking the Red Sox about their plans are being told that they intend to keep Ross, in an outfield that would eventually include Carl Crawford and Jacoby Ellsbury.

Ryan Sweeney and, possibly, Daniel Nava are expected to be made available for trade, instead.

With Crawford and Ellsbury returning in the near future, many expected the Red Sox to make available their bevy of replacement outfielders, including Scott Podsednik, Ryan Kalish, Nava, Sweeney and even Ross.

However, it doesn’t appear the club is interested in trading Ross, who’s second on the team in OPS behind only designated hitter David Ortiz. On the season, Ross has hit at a clip of .280/355/.559 with 12 home runs, 14 doubles and 39 RBIs over his 186 at-bats.
