David Ross cleared to participate in baseball activities
|05.20.13 at 8:45 pm ET|
‘He was cleared by the impact testing, symptoms have resolved,’ said Red Sox manager John Farrell. ‘He threw today. He rode a bike for 30 minutes, no repeat of symptoms. We’ll look to repeat the intensity of the work tomorrow so he’s turning the corner.
‘So baseball activities will start to come into play a little bit more. By the end of this road trip, what we’ve got to figure out is it better off for him to go get a game or two (in the minors) just to see some game-speed. He’s moving in the right direction.’
Ross has been on the seven-day concussion disabled list after experiencing the injury
Ryan Lavarnway has been playing in place of Ross, having caught two times (with the Red Sox going 1-1 in those starts).
‘[Ross] is throwing and hitting off the tee,’ Farrell said. ‘It’s been initiated. It’s just not full speed yet.’
