The Arizona Diamondbacks (4-11) currently have the worst record in the league and sit at the bottom of the National League West division standings.
They’ll be taking on the Los Angeles Dodgers to open up a three game series, the first game of a seven game road trip which will end in Chicago against the Cubs before they return home to play the Phillies. With that being said, the Diamondbacks have activated outfielder Cody Ross from the 15-day disabled list.
Ross made his Cactus League debut halfway through March after returning from hip surgery. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list to start off the 2014 regular season but appears to be healthy enough to return to the lineup.
He’ll be fifth for the Diamondbacks tonight.
With Ross returning to the lineup, the D’backs have designated lefty Ryan Rowland-Smith for assignment. Rowland-Smith, 31, was removed in order to make some room on the 40-man roster for the veteran outfielder.
Rowland-Smith appeared in six games for the D’backs so far this season. He’ll carry his 4.91 ERA with him to whoever picks him up.
