The Phillies and Giants each remain interested in Angel Pagan. And now, reports FoxSports.com's Ken Rosenthal, Cody Ross is also the target of both teams.

The Pagan angle is not new. The Phillies and Giants each reportedly made him a four-year offer. Ross, though, is a new wrinkle. Rosenthal notes that neither the Giants or Phillies see Ross as a center fielder or lead-off man, so he's not precisely a fallback plan in lieu of Pagan. Ross, of course, was a key stretch-drive addition by the Giants in 2010 in winning their first World Series since 1954.

Pagan, a core member of the Giants' 2012 championship team, is coming off a season in which he batted .288/.338/.440 with 29 steals in 36 chances, 38 doubles and a majors-leading 15 triples. He also provided outstanding defense in center. Pagan, 31, is hitting .281/.333/.424 for his career.

As for Ross, the 31-year-old batted .267/.326/.481 for the Red Sox last season. While he's capable of manning all three outfield positions, he's best suited to the corners.
