Description: Arizona outfielder Cody Ross (calf) took live batting practice without any setbacks on Friday and is expected to return to the Diamondbacks on Monday when the rosters expand.
Insight: Ross has not played since straining his calf in the middle of June. Even if he returns next week, he is not expected to play everyday and thus is not a viable fantasy option.

Description: Arizona outfielder Cody Ross is questionable for Tuesday's game against Pittsburgh with a bruised hip.
Insight: Ross (.216, 1 HR, 8 RBI) has hit so poorly that he's been reduced to a platoon role. Ignore him and look elsewhere for outfield help.

Description: Arizona outfielder Cody Ross left Saturday's game against San Diego with a bruised hip and is questionable for Sunday.

Description: According to the Arizona Republic, Diamondbacks outfielder Cody Ross (hip) is 7-10 days away from returning.
Insight: Ross is currently on a rehab assignment in Triple-A Reno. "He's been swinging the bat well all spring," GM Kevin Towers said. "The key thing for him is how he feels when he goes out there and has to play on back-to-back days, nine innings in the outfield." Mark Trumbo plays every day in left field, so Ross, Gerardo Parra and A.J. Pollock will have to split up starts at the other two outfield spots.
