Cody Ross Tweets That He’ll Wear No. 7 for Red Sox

Newly acquired Red Sox outfielder Cody Ross will be donning the same number as his right field predecessor.

The 2010 National League Championship Series MVP, who signed a one-year deal with the Red Sox earlier this week, announced on Twitter that he would sport No. 7 this season — the number that belonged to J.D. Drew during his five years in Boston.

Now a free agent, Drew reportedly plans to retire after 14 seasons with the Cardinals, Braves, Dodgers and Red Sox.

"YES! It's official, #7 for the #RedSox," Ross tweeted on Thursday evening.

After propelling the Giants to the World Series in 2010, Ross struggled last season, hitting .240 with 14 home runs and 52 RBIs
