Cody Ross was never a fit with the Diamondbacks

The much-maligned tenure of Cody Ross with the Arizona Diamondbacks came to an abrupt end this past weekend when the Diamondbacks released Ross, eating the final $9.5 million remaining on his three-year, $25 million contract. Ross hooked on with the Athletics this week, but looking back, his tenure in Arizona was doomed to fail from the beginning. When former Diamondbacks GM Kevin...

Red Sox Outfield Trade Targets: Cody Ross, Marlon Byrd Among Options

The 2014 Boston Red Sox have flaws. Perhaps the most glaring is the outfield, which has provided very little production all season. The Red Sox’s outfield, collectively, ranks dead-last in the majors with a .614 OPS. The unit — a wins-below-replacement group at this juncture — owns a major league-worst .211 batting average. Something needs to change, and a trade might be the...

The losers of WAR: June update

Earlier today, we took a look at the players who were leading the league in WAR to begin the month of June. If we are anything here at The Outside Corner, it is fair and balanced. As such, in the interest of equal time, let’s take a look at the other end of the leaderboard to see who is “winning” the race to have the worst WAR in all of baseball this year. Hitters Cody Ross...

With hip healthy, Ross trying to get back in the flow

PHOENIX -- Cody Ross' sliding catch near the left-field foul line Saturday night might have caused some in Chase Field to cringe inasmuch as Ross finished the play with his weight squarely on his surgically repaired right hip. Not to worry. As Ross said early Sunday, sliding was never the primary issue during his recovery, even if it was the last part of the game he attacked in spring...

D-backs activate Ross from DL

The Diamondbacks reinstated outfielder Cody Ross from the 15-day disabled list Friday and designated reliever Ryan Rowland-Smith for assignment.

D-backs' Ross on unexpectedly fast track to recovery

PHOENIX -- It is one of the most remarkable catches in recent history, YouTube-able still. Running full speed, Bo Jackson caught a long fly ball in center field and instead of ramming into the wall scaled it with three quick steps -- right, left right -- before alighting back on the warning track, leaving cleat marks in the padded fence at Baltimore's old Memorial Stadium. Diamondbacks...
