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.
