Astros interested in David Ross?

MLB.com is reporting the Astros are one of a handful of teams interested in catcher Dave Ross.

Ross spent time with the Reds and Red Sox last year, hitting a combined .225 in 60 games and 142 at-bats. He did hit 38 home runs total in '06 and '07 for the Reds, and would be expected to share time at catcher with Humberto Quintero.

It looks like the Astros would want to stabilize the position with a veteran - Quintero and Towles are currently the 2s in the system, and with Jason Castro not expected until at least 2010, they could be looking at a three-year deal for another catcher...
