Cody Ross went 2-for-3 and drove home his 15th run of the season in Friday's loss to the Rockies.
Ross doubled home a run in the sixth inning to pull the Diamondbacks to within 6-2, but that would be as close as they would get. It has been another disappointing and injury-raved season for the veteran outfielder, who is hitting .254/.302/.325 in his first 80 games. Sat, Sep 20, 2014 12:06:00 AM

Cody Ross went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

Ross was one of the few Diamondbacks who could get to Zack Greinke, as he had three of the team's six hits on the afternoon. That included an RBI single in the third inning. Since being activated from the disabled list on September 1, Ross is 5-for-10 with two doubles, two RBI and two runs scored.

Diamondbacks activated OF Cody Ross from the 15-day disabled list.

Ross missed five weeks with a calf strain. He was batting just .238/.287/.306 in 66 games before the injury and is doubtful to carry fantasy relevance down the stretch.

Cody Ross (calf) took live batting practice without issue on Friday, and is expected to return to the Diamondbacks on Monday when rosters expand.

Ross was also able to run the bases on Friday. He has been sidelined since mid-July due to a strained calf, and isn't expected to see everyday at-bats even after his return. His days of fantasy relevancy in mixed leagues look to be over.

Cody Ross (calf) had plans to run the bases this past Saturday, but that idea was scrapped.

Ross apparently is still feeling some soreness in his left calf. The Diamondbacks were hoping to get the outfielder back sometime this month, but it now seems likely that they'll have to wait until September.

Diamondbacks placed OF Cody Ross on the 15-day disabled list with a left calf strain.

Ross tried to play through the injury, but that didn't go so well. He'll likely be out now for three weeks. Alfredo Marte was called up in a corresponding move.

Cody Ross (calf) had a pinch-hit single Monday against the Tigers.

Ross left Saturday's game due to tightness in his left calf, but apparently he's feeling improvement. He should be able to return to the lineup soon.

Cody Ross left Saturday's game versus the Cubs because of tightness in his left calf.

Ross was 1-for-1 with a single to center field before departing in the fifth inning. Gerardo Parra replaced him in right field. Ross is considered day-to-day for now.

The struggling Cody Ross went 0-for-3 in the loss to the Astros on Wednesday.

The Diamondbacks intended for Ross to be a starting outfielder even back when Mark Trumbo and A.J. Pollock were healthy. However, he's played so badly that he's been limited to starting against lefties even in the piecemeal Arizona outfield. It's his skills against left-handers that have kept him in the league, but he's just 7-for-30 with no extra-base hits against them this year. And he's been even worse in his 84 at-bats versus righties.

Cody Ross continued his struggles in the nightcap of Sunday's doubleheader against the Mets, going 0-for-3 with an RBI groundout.

The veteran outfielder has had his share of difficulties at the plate since returning from the disabled list, slashing a paltry .191/.234/.247 in his first 28 games. He shouldn't be started in anything other than NL-only formats until he shows signs of life at the plate.

Cody Ross went 2-for-3 with a double and a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Dodgers.

Ross took Dan Haren deep in the fourth inning for his first jack of the season. He has been dreadful at the plate after starting the season on the disabled list. Sunday's effort pushes him over the Mendoza line, however, as he is now slashing .203/.244/.270.

Cody Ross was the lone useless member of Arizona's lineup on Saturday, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts against the Diamondbacks.

Everyone else except Gerardo Parra had at least one hit, and Parra managed an RBI and a run scored. Ross shouldn't be starting against right-handers, and he certainly shouldn't be hitting ahead of Martin Prado and Mark Trumbo if he has to start against right-handers. He's 0-for-9 since coming off the DL.

Cody Ross went 0-for-5 with a strikeout in his return from the disabled list on Friday.

The Diamondbacks followed through on their threat and started Ross against a very tough righty in Zack Greinke. The results were pretty much what should have been expected. Ross figures to be a liability against righties for however long it takes the Diamondbacks to realize he's a fourth outfielder.

Diamondbacks activated Cody Ross from the 15-day disabled list.

The veteran outfielder is expected to serve as the Diamondbacks everyday left fielder now that he's healthy. He's hitting fifth in manager Kirk Gibson's lineup on Friday.

Cody Ross (hip) is aiming to be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

Ross had a mini-setback during his rehab assignment when he felt a little twinge in his side, but he's played the last few days with no issues. As long as he doesn't encounter any more bumps in the road, he'll be back this weekend. Manager Kirk Gibson indicated last week that Ross would be the main left fielder when he returns.
