White Sox signed LHP Robbie Ross to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Ross had an injury-riddled 2017 campaign but was pretty effective out of the Red Sox' bullpen from 2015-16. The 28-year-old left-hander will compete for a relief spot in Chicago.

According to Rob Bradford of WEEI, the Blue Jays are showing interest in free agent reliever Robbie Ross.

Ross should come rather cheap this winter after being limited to eight appearances during the 2017 season and requiring back surgery in late August. He's been effective in the past as a lefty specialist, with 2016 ranking as maybe the finest year of his career. Bradford notes that there is a connection between Ross and Blue Jays vice president of baseball operations Ben Cherington, who spent a long time in the Red Sox front office.

Ross will be a free agent this winter, but he could struggle to find lucrative offers after undergoing back surgery in late August. The 28-year-old lefty reliever was limited to eight appearances in 2017. He did post a 3.25 ERA over 55 1/3 innings in 2016, holding left-handed batters to a .188 average and .545 OPS.
