This is an injury report that will make you wince. Diamondbacks outfielder Cody Ross had to leave this afternoon’s game against the Mets after ending the first inning with a ground out to third base. He had to be carted off the field with what the team has officially reported as a dislocated hip, via MLB.com’s Steve Gilbert.
When Ross came out, Martin Prado moved from third base to left field. Rookie Matt Davidson came into the game at third base. Davidson would get his first career hit leading off the top of the sixth, singling to left field against Mets starter Jon Niese.
Ross, now 32 years old, missed the first ten games of the season with a strained left calf. Since returning on April 13, he has posted a .747 OPS in 350 trips to the plate.
The Diamondbacks signed Ross as a free agent in the off-season to a three-year, $26 million contract.
