Cody Ross could return Friday
by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com (4/7/2013) Diamondbacks outfielder Cody Ross, who has yet to make his season debut with Arizona because of strained left calf, could return to the lineup as early as Friday, MLB.com reports. Ross is on a Class A rehab assignment and is scheduled to play all nine innings during an extended spring training game Thursday.
"We signed him to play, so when he's ready to play and be able to make contributions on a daily basis then I think you think about bringing him back," manager Kirk Gibson said Sunday. "I don't want him to play minimal innings and then think that he's going to be able to play every day and not get hurt again."
Cody Ross picks up RBI in rehab assignment

Keep an eye on Cody Ross
by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer (4/4/2013) Owned in just 19 percent of leagues -- a number likely pushed down by a spring training injury to his calf -- Cody Ross is nearing game-ready status, and Fantasy owners in deeper leagues may want to take note.
Ross hit .267 with 22 home runs over 476 at-bats last year with the Red Sox -- the third 20-plus home run campaign of his career, despite playing mainly for teams (Florida, San Francisco) with pitcher-friendly parks. The Diamondbacks currently have the third-most runs scored (17) in baseball -- without Ross in the lineup. He should alternately benefit from and contribute to the lofty runs scored number. And with that low ownership number, it's worth checking Ross' free agent stautus in deeper leagues.
Ross will play every day and should be in line for 25 home runs and a good amount of counting stats. He may have a little rust early, but Ross will play well enough to have 60 percent ownership by the middle of May.
Injured OF, SS making progress for Arizona
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (4/4/2013) Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Wednesday he was very encouraged after watching outfielder Cody Ross (calf) and shortstop Didi Gregorious (elbow) get 15 at-bats in a simulated game Tuesday, according to The Arizona Republic.
Both players could begin rehab assignments Thursday, with Ross playing for Class A Visalia and Gregorious reporting to Triple-A Reno.
"I thought they both looked very good," Gibson said. "The big (thing) is how they feel (Thursday). Number 1, if they feel nothing, that’s a good sign. If they feel a little something, it doesn’t mean that they’re hurt still, it just means that maybe we pushed them a little too hard."
Cody Ross could be back next Monday
by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com (4/1/2013) Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson told FOXSports.com on Monday that outfielder Cody Ross could be back as early as next week. Gibson said that would be the best-case scenario after Ross was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday due to a left calf injury.

Diamondbacks place Cody Ross on 15-day DL
by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com (3/31/2013) The Diamondbacks have placed Cody Ross on the 15-day disabled list, the club announced Sunday.

As expected, Cody Ross to DL
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (3/30/2013) Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson surprised nobody in camp Friday when he told MLB.com that the team will have outfielder Cody Ross begin the season on the disabled list.
Ross has not appeared in a game since March 3, due to a left-leg injury. Ross has been jogging in recent days, but is likely a week or more away from being ready to play in games, so the team will backdate the DL stint by 10 days.
"We felt like we hadn't gotten far enough in the running to where I could just run out there on Opening Day and not risk injury," Ross told MLB.com "It's a tough one to swallow, but at the end of the year, we'll hopefully look back and say that was the right move."
Ross could miss a minimum of five games before being eligible to return. The team plans to have him begin a rehab stint in the minors Thursday, before returning to the team during a weekend series in Milwaukee.

Ross has just seven at-bats under his belt in the Cactus League this season and has yet to record a hit. He batted .267 last year with Boston over 130 games with 22 homers and 81 RBI and is projected to be the D-Backs' starter in right field, when healthy.

According to MLB.com, Ross is behind schedule and will not begin any weight-bearing activities on March 18, as originally planned.
"It's just been slow," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "He's done really no full weight-bearing stuff running-wise. He's not ready for it. I think he went in the pool yesterday. I think the next step will be the Ultra G [treadmill], which they can unload some of the weight when he runs."
Ross, who has not appeared in a game since March 3 against the Giants, does not have a timetable at this point.
