Outfielder Cody Ross would like to remain with the Boston Red Sox, and there are indications that the club is potentially interested in signing the free agent-to-be to a long-term extension, reports Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe:

Ross, who entered Saturday’s game against the A’s hitting .278 with 19 homers and 67 RBIs, said the Sox have not begun negotiating a new deal with him. But there are signs, based on conversations he has had with the higher-ups, that they would like to work out a longer-term deal.

In a season that many Red Sox fans would like to forget, Ross has been one of the teams’ few bright spots. After signing a one-year deal with the club this offseason, the 31-year-old has hit .275/.338/.504 with twenty-seven doubles and nineteen home runs.

Cafardo speculates that his impressive numbers could earn Ross a new contract similar to the three-year, $27 million deal Josh Willingham signed with the Minnesota Twins this offseason.
