Found March 17, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Cody Ross continues to be hampered by a left camp injury, which manager Kirk Gibson admitted could cause the offseason acquisition to begin the year on the disabled list, according to Steve Gilbert of MLB.com. Gibson notes that Ross seems to be recovering from his injury slower than expected. "It's just been slow," Gibson said. "He's done really no full weight-bearing stuff running-wise. He's not ready for it. I think he went in the pool yesterday. I think the next step will be the Ultra G [treadmill], which they can unload some of the weight when he runs." Ross hasn’t appeared in a spring training contest since March 3. While there’s still a chance that the 32-year-old starts the season on Arizona’s active roster, he could also be sidelined for the first part of the year as he continues his recover. Ross hit .267/.326/.481 with 34 doubles and 22 home runs last season for the Boston Red Sox. He owns a career batting line of .262/.324/.460 over nine seasons in the majors. Ross signed a three-year, $26 million contract with the D’backs this offseason. He is poised to be a regular in an outfield that lost Justin Upton and Chris Young to trade over the winter. Beyond Ross, Gerardo Parra, Adam Eaton and Jason Kubel should all see time in Arizona’s outfield this season.

D-backs notes: Bloomquist back in action

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Willie Bloomquist was in town for less than a day before he was back in the Diamondbacks lineup.

He talked his way into the game Sunday in a meeting with manager Kirk Gibson. It (WBC) was a great experience...

20 wins? D-backs see big year ahead for Cahill

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Trevor Cahill has altered his diet to eliminate foods his body tolerates with reluctance.

D-backs notes: Strong starts for Miley, Delgado

GLENDALE, Ariz. The Diamondbacks received some encouraging signs from their starting rotation Monday, when Wade Miley showed well in a camp game and rotation contender Randall Delgado had a third straight strong appearance. Despite missing a start because of arm fatigue, Miley can get enough work to be ready for his first regular-season start on April 3 against the Cardinals, D...

As Opening Day nears, D-backs have questions

PEORIA, Ariz. -- When the Diamondbacks take the field Monday they'll be two weeks from Opening Day 2013. With twelve Cactus League games left then, the D-backs will have to start making some difficult decisions, though manager Kirk Gibson says there is no rush yet. "When the general manager comes into my office and starts opening up the chalkboard then I think we'll...

D-backs notes: Liner forces Kennedy out early

PEORIA, Ariz. -- Diamondbacks Opening Day starter Ian Kennedy left Saturday's Cactus League game against the Padres earlier than expected after being hit in the left leg by a line drive, but he said afterward that he does not anticipate missing his next start. "It feels like if you foul a ball off your ankle," Kennedy said. "We'll just treat it for next time...

D-backs send struggling Skaggs to Triple-A

The three-man competition for the fifth spot in the Diamondbacks' starting rotation was trimmed to two Monday when Tyler Skaggs was optioned to Triple-A Reno. Skaggs, a left-hander who's considered one of the team's top prospects, had struggled for much of camp, making five starts and getting hit hard in all but one. In his last appearance on Saturday, he went 2 23 innings...

D-backs place Kubel on DL

The Arizona Diamondbacks have placed outfielder Jason Kubel on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left quadriceps and activated outfielder Cody Ross. Kubel says he felt a problem in his leg in the final game of a series in Milwaukee on Wednesday. He was out of the lineup Friday but made a pinch-hit appearance, singling in the eighth inning in a 3-0 victory over the Los Angeles...

Diamondbacks 9, Dodgers 1

Aaron Hill is a wealthier man this year, Trevor Cahill a slimmer one. Both had their best days of the spring in the Arizona Diamondbacks' 9-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers in a split-squad game Sunday. Hill - who signed a contract that will earn him $40.5 million over the next four seasons - homered, doubled and singled while driving in four runs. Cahill - on a diet...

Nelson Figueroa: Hometown Kid Shines In WBC Spotlight

I always regarded the WBC as Dancing With The Stars with spikes. It’s a manufactured competition, but with its roots in nationalism. However, last night’s USA-Puerto Rico elimination match was compelling, far more interesting than your average Mets-Marlins spring training game. That interest was generated by the passion in the stands. The WBC means more in terms of national pride...

Diamondbacks 8, Padres 6

Patrick Corbin had another strong spring start, pitching into the fifth inning Sunday as the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Diego Padres 8-6 in a game between split squads.

Diamondbacks...
