According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Phillies are intensifying their pursuit of free agent Cody Ross.

Rosenthal adds that other teams are also being more aggressive now with Josh Hamilton now off the market. Ross, 31, batted .267/.326/.481 with 22 home runs and 81 RBI in 130 games for the Red Sox last season and is said to be seeking a three-year, $25 million deal in free agency. The Mariners and Yankees have been mentioned as previous landing spots.
