Cody Ross earning role with Diamondbacks


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) Cody Ross has impressed the Diamondbacks this spring, and he's earning an increased role with the team. 

Ross is hitting .333 this spring, with one strikeout in 18 at bats. 

"He's playing with a lot of energy," manager Chip Hale told MLB.com's Steve Gilbert. "His body seems to have responded from an offseason of working out and getting some rest. His bat is really playing right now. That really is important for us. We need him to be an impact-type guy when he plays. He's not going to be an everyday player at this point in his career, most likely, for us, but when he does start for us against lefties and comes off the bench, we need a guy who can really do a job."
