Nothing is official yet, but Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports that “all indications” point to the Red Sox getting outfielder Cody Ross back from the disabled list Tuesday.

Ross has been out since mid-May with a fractured left foot and has gone just 1-for-7 on a brief minor-league rehab assignment at Triple-A, but with Ryan Sweeney becoming the latest Red Sox outfielder to hit the disabled list they could certainly use Ross’ bat in the lineup.

He hit .271 with eight homers in 37 games before the injury, posting an .887 OPS that ranks second on the team behind only David Ortiz at .978. His career numbers aren’t anywhere near that strong, with an OPS nearly 100 points lower, but Boston is running out of other options.

    Hopefully this is the end of the Darnell McDonald Experience.

    Running out of options? They just got Kalish back. His injury is the whole reason the Sox had a hole in right field and thus why they signed Ross and Sweeney to begin with. And Daniel Nava has been stellar in the field, decent with a bat. Podsednik has been swinging well. Darnell, well… I really like him so I won’t speak ill of him. I’m just saying they’re not as desperate as this article makes them sound for outfielders despite the 329 they have on the DL.

    Plus I keep hearing rumors of Ellsbury and Crawford coming back soon. (THough those rumors have been saying that for two months now, so I’m starting to disbelieve them)

    I will say though, it will be nice when they don’t have to put Gonzo in RF. He’s been great out there, but it’s just asking for an injury.

    Cody Ross was in remission. Ah well. They got Youlilis’ face back and haven’t fallen apart completely yet.
