David Ross hasn’t played in a game since June 14, but if all goes as planned, the catcher could begin his rehabilitation assignment and see game action as soon as next week, manager John Farrell said before Saturday’s game against the Diamondbacks.
Ross had been battling recurring concussion symptoms, sending the 36-year-old to the 60-day disabled list on June 25. Ross will not be eligible to return to the Sox lineup until Aug. 18, but he has made dramatic progress in his recovery of late.
Ross participated in batting practice and caught a bullpen session before Saturday’s game, and he is a doctor’s clearance away from beginning his rehab stint. Ross was hitting .185 with four home runs and six RBIs before joining the DL, but he was also valuable to the Red Sox for his clubhouse leadership.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Ryan Lavarnway have handled the catcher duties in Ross’ absence. Saltalamacchia is hitting .263 with nine home runs and 41 RBIs on the season, while Lavarnway is posting...

One random baseball game in August cannot tell the whole story of a baseball team and its season, no matter the circumstances. There is a reason that baseball is played in series format, as each set of two, three, four and sometimes even five games is how teams build the stories of their season as the push to play in October lives on.
Brandon McCarthy was sharp early on, but the Diamondbacks failed to score in Sunday’s 4-0 loss in Boston, capping off a series loss after a very promising win in the opener. McCarthy had good stuff early on in his return from the disabled list. A high pitch count doomed him and he left the game after 4.1 innings, giving up two runs and striking out five.
It’s hard to put into words how this Boston Red Sox team continues to win games. Thursday night’s magical comeback, as manager John Farrell termed it, turned Fenway Park into a madhouse. The Red Sox (66-44) trailed 7-1 going into the eighth inning before scoring seven runs over the final two frames to sweep the Seattle Mariners. The walk-off...
It wasn’t the prettiest of games, but any time you can go in to Beantown and take one right away from a pretty good Red Sox team, we’ll take it. That’s exactly what the Diamondbacks did Friday night, eeking out a 7-6 win over Boston.
Cody Ross made his first return to Fenway Park as an opposing player a memorable one as he rapped out four hits, including a home run and two doubles, in Arizona's 7-6 win over the Red Sox. The loss snapped Boston's winning streak at three games.
Jon Lester started for Boston and lasted just 4.1 innings, his shortest outing of the year...
