David Ross could return without rehab


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

"We've still got to get some steps accomplished with David," Farrell said. "He's set to catch a bullpen or two today. He started to do a little bit more running yesterday and came out of it feeling OK, so he's making adequate progress as well."

Ross has been out since Aug. 1 as a result of the injury, and there is not a clear timetable for when he might come back from the DL.


Foot injury actually a 'positive' for David Ross


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2014) Suffering a ruptured plantar fascia in his right foot might have been good news for Red Sox catcher David Ross, as manager John Farrell explained Saturday after Ross was placed on the disabled list.

"Everything points toward that tendon having let go last night -- which, in this case, is a positive," Farrell told MLB.com. "How many days it takes to recover, we'll see. But the 15 days should hopefully help this quiet down to the point of him returning."

Ross has been playing through pain in his foot for weeks, so this appears to be a good thing long term. Ross will be out for at least two weeks while recovering, however.
