The Arizona Diamondbacks have placed outfielder Jason Kubel on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left quadriceps and activated outfielder Cody Ross.

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 Dodgers. Ross has yet to make his Arizona debut after signing with the team in the offseason. He opened the season on the disabled list with a strained left calf and just completed a rehab assignment at Class A Visalia.

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.

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.

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: No rush on Ross' return

Outfielder Cody Ross (calf) ran at 50 percent of his weight-bearing load on a treadmill Tuesday and took batting practice later. There seems to be some concern as to his availability for Opening Day.

D-backs seek mix of aggression, intelligence

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. When it comes to aggressiveness on the bases, the Diamondbacks are not really trying anything new this spring. They are simply trying to do what they like to do better. Running into outs was a problem in 2012, and it goes without saying that D-backs need to improve there to make their somewhat-smaller-ball style work this season. They understand. Kirk Gibson confronted...
