Red Sox activate Ross from DL
Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Boston Red Sox activated catcher David Ross from the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday among a flurry of roster moves.
Ross had been bothered by plantar fasciitis in late July, and was finally placed on the disabled list Aug. 2, one day after his last game appearance, against the New York Yankees.
The 37-year-old Ross is batting just .192 with six homers and 12 RBI in 40 games this season.
In addition, Boston optioned catcher Daniel Butler and pitcher Steven Wright to Triple-A Pawtucket and recalled utilityman Alex Hassan from its top farm club.
Hassan went 1-for-7 and scored a run in his first major-league recall, from June 1-3.
Wright allowed one run over four relief innings on Sunday against the Astros. Butler finished 0-for-11 in three games earlier in August.
