Red Sox Injury Update: David Ross to be activated

By on 8/20/2014 06:00:00 AM

The Boston Red Sox entered Tuesday night's game against the Los Angeles Angels in last place in the American League East at 56-68. Not much has gone right for the defending World Series champions, as they are near the bottom of the Major Leagues in runs scored and bottom third in ERA. There is some good news on the injury front, as catcher David Ross will be activated today.

Our own Pete Schwichtenberg reported on August 18 that Ross, who has been on the disabled list with plantar fasciitis, would be skipping a rehab trip and was expected to be back with the big club on Monday or Tuesday.

Pete Abraham, who covers the Red Sox for The Boston Globe, confirmed the status of Ross with this tweet.
Ross, in his 13th Major League season, is batting .192 with six home runs and 12 RBI in 125 at bats this season. The veteran catcher has played for the Dodgers, Pirates, Padres, Reds, Braves and Red Sox and is a career .234 hitter with 94 home runs and 270 RBI.
