Per the Diamondbacks official Twitter, the team has activated Cody Ross from the 15-day disabled list and designated pitcher Ryan Rowland-Smith for assignment to make room on the roster. Ross had been sidelined since last August after he dislocated his hip. He took one at-bat during spring training and struck out, and has recently been out on a rehab assignment.

The 4-14 Diamondbacks could use some offense. They rank in the bottom-third of the league in both on-base percentage and slugging percentage, and have had below-average offensive production out of all three of their regular outfielders. Ross portends to get the lion’s share of the playing time in left field now that he’s back.

      While I basically agree with your assessment of the D-backs and Grit, I wish both you as a fan and Cody Ross as a player all the best. He was a good guy for the Giants for a while, so I hope he does well for you (absolutely killing the Dodgers, but slumping against the Giants.)
