|Cody Ross might be ready to play in outfield within a week |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(10:44 am ET) Diamondbacks outfielder Cody Ross, who suffered a fractured and dislocated hip last August, made his spring debut Sunday against the Brewers as a pinch hitter. He struck out in his only at-bat in the sixth inning.
"It's a little different than he's been facing," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said, per The Arizona Republic. "He had a tough at-bat."
Ross is facing no limitations running the bases, and the team hopes he is ready to play in the outfield within in a week.
"It was definitely just nice to get out there, no matter what the outcome, just to step in the box," Ross said. "To be where I was eight months ago and to get in there and compete, it was definitely something I really didn't think was possible at this time."

(3/7/14) Diamondbacks outfielder Cody Ross could begin sliding soon, according to azcentral.com.
Ross has been receiving at-bats in minor-league games, and is close to doing sliding drills. Ross is attempting to come back from a gruesome hip injury. He's hoping to make his spring debut in a week or so. It's unlikely Ross breaks camp with the team in time to play in the Australia series.
Ross hit .278/.331/.413 in 317 at-bats last year.

Ross, who ran at 60-to-70 percent Monday, is scheduled to play in a simulated game Tuesday. He'll keep looking for progress in his return from hip surgery and could be ready for the beginning of the season March 31.
|Cody Ross could make Cactus League debut on March 13 |

(2/27/14) Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson told The Arizona Republic on Thursday that outfielder Cody Ross will make his Cactus League debut around March 13.
Ross was cleared for all spring-training activities two weeks ago as he continues to work his way back from offseason hip surgery. He remains hopeful for the team's home opener on March 31.
|Cody Ross cleared for all spring-training activities |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(2/11/14) Diamondbacks outfielder Cody Ross has been cleared to participate in all spring-training activities after meeting Monday with the surgeon who performed the operation on Ross' hip, MLB.com reports.
"I don't think he really fully thought that I was going to be where I'm at right now," Ross said of his surgeon. "He was pretty surprised the way my rehab went and my therapy went. He just kept giving me the green light to push it a little further and push it a little further. I saw him yesterday and he gave me free rein to do everything. That's a nice feeling when you go into a doctor and he says, 'Go for it. Go until you can't go anymore.'"
Ross is optimistic he'll be ready for game action by the team's home opener on March 31 and still hopes to play in the team's opening series in Australia on March 22 and 23.
|Cody Ross had a year to forget in 2013, mostly due to injury. Ross started the season -- his first with Arizona after signing a three-year deal -- on the disabled list with a calf injury. It was a short stay, but he would finish the season on the disabled list after suffering a gruesome hip dislocation running the bases in mid-August. Ross would need season-ending surgery, which could threaten his availability for the start of the 2014 season. Even before getting hurt, Ross was not having a banner campaign. He struggled with vision problems and it showed up in his numbers, hitting .256 through the first three months. Before his season came to an end Aug. 11, Ross finally seemed to be putting it together, as he hit .321 with a .538 slugging percentage and .903 OPS in a 31-game span leading up to the hip injury. Ross has flashed 20-homer potential a few times in his career, most recently in 2012 with Boston, but he's not getting any younger (33 years old). Since Ross will be coming off a major injury, it's best to consider him a late-round Fantasy option.
