Cody Ross continued his struggles in the nightcap of Sunday's doubleheader against the Mets, going 0-for-3 with an RBI groundout.

The veteran outfielder has had his share of difficulties at the plate since returning from the disabled list, slashing a paltry .191/.234/.247 in his first 28 games. He shouldn't be started in anything other than NL-only formats until he shows signs of life at the plate.

Cody Ross went 2-for-3 with a double and a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Dodgers.

Ross took Dan Haren deep in the fourth inning for his first jack of the season. He has been dreadful at the plate after starting the season on the disabled list. Sunday's effort pushes him over the Mendoza line, however, as he is now slashing .203/.244/.270.

Cody Ross was the lone useless member of Arizona's lineup on Saturday, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts against the Diamondbacks.

Everyone else except Gerardo Parra had at least one hit, and Parra managed an RBI and a run scored. Ross shouldn't be starting against right-handers, and he certainly shouldn't be hitting ahead of Martin Prado and Mark Trumbo if he has to start against right-handers. He's 0-for-9 since coming off the DL.

Cody Ross went 0-for-5 with a strikeout in his return from the disabled list on Friday.

The Diamondbacks followed through on their threat and started Ross against a very tough righty in Zack Greinke. The results were pretty much what should have been expected. Ross figures to be a liability against righties for however long it takes the Diamondbacks to realize he's a fourth outfielder.

Diamondbacks activated Cody Ross from the 15-day disabled list.

The veteran outfielder is expected to serve as the Diamondbacks everyday left fielder now that he's healthy. He's hitting fifth in manager Kirk Gibson's lineup on Friday.

Cody Ross (hip) is aiming to be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

Ross had a mini-setback during his rehab assignment when he felt a little twinge in his side, but he's played the last few days with no issues. As long as he doesn't encounter any more bumps in the road, he'll be back this weekend. Manager Kirk Gibson indicated last week that Ross would be the main left fielder when he returns.

Cody Ross (hip) returned to his rehab assignment Thursday after missing the previous two games with "something in his side that was bothering him," according to Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers.

"Nothing major, just something in his side that was bothering him a little bit, so we gave him an extra day," Towers said. Ross had been slated to rejoin the D'Backs as soon as this weekend, but it's not clear whether this little setback will affect that timetable. Manager Kirk Gibson indicated earlier this week that Ross would be the main left field when he returns.

Cody Ross (hip) will begin his rehab assignment at Triple-A Reno on Wednesday.

He's slated to be in Reno until being re-evaluated on April 10. Ross is working his way back from hip surgery in August, and the team is hoping to have him back sometime in mid-to-late April.
