PHOENIX — Carlsbad native Cody Ross and the Arizona Diamondbacks agreed to a three-year contract Saturday with a club option for 2016.

Ross, who turns 32 on Sunday and lives in nearby Scottsdale, adds to the abundance of outfielders on the Arizona roster, leading to speculation a trade might be coming. Ross batted .267 with 22 home runs and 81 RBIs last season for the Boston Red Sox. He’s a career .267 hitter in nine big league seasons with six teams.

“Could not be happier to be in the Dbacks family! Truly Blessed!” Ross posted on his Twitter account.
