The leg strain limited him to seven at-bats this exhibition season. The 32-year-old spent the 2012 season with the Boston Red Sox, hitting .267/.326/.481 with 34 doubles and 22 home runs over 476 plate appearances. With Ross and fellow regular Adam Eaton set to start the season on the disabled list, the D’backs will open the year with a starting outfield that includes Jason Kubel, Gerardo Parra and A.J.
