David Ross has been out of action since June 14 suffering the effects of a concussion. Prior to suffering the injury, the 36-year-old was basically splitting time with Jarrod Saltalamacchia behind the plate, so the Red Sox will likely be happy to have Ross back in the fold.
That being said, head injuries are a serious business, and Boston has the luxury of taking Ross’ rehab slowly, making sure he’s fully fit to be on the field before activating him. Ross is currently with the Portland Sea Dogs, and will spend the immediate future alternating between catching and taking at-bats as the designated hitter. At some point he’ll move on to Pawtucket, and when he can catch on back-to-back nights, he’ll return to the Red Sox.
