The Boston Red Sox activated outfielder Cody Ross prior to last night’s game against the Miami Marlins, reports Ian Browne of MLB.com. In a corresponding roster move, the Red Sox placed outfielder Scott Podsednik on the 15-day disabled list with a mild left groin strain.
Ross returned to the Red Sox lineup last night after missing nearly a month of action while recovering from a broken bone in his left foot. The 31-year-old hit seventh for Boston, finishing 1-3 on the night with a home run and RBI.
Over his 38 games played for the Red Sox, Ross has hit at a clip of .272/.348/.551 with nine home runs, nine doubles and 29 RBIs.
Podsednik sustained his injury Sunday during the Red Sox game against the Chicago Cubs. The 36-year-old helped fill in for the injured Ross and Boston’s other sidelined outfielders, posting a line of .387/.409/.484 four extra-base hits, nine runs scored and six stolen bases over his 62 at-bats.
