David Ross cleared to participate in baseball activities

05.20.13 at 8:45 pm ET

CHICAGO ‘€“ Red Sox catcher David Ross, who suffered a concussion after being hit by two foul balls in the mask May 11, has resumed some baseball activities after being re-examined.

‘€œHe was cleared by the impact testing, symptoms have resolved,’€ said Red Sox manager John Farrell. ‘€œHe 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.

‘€œSo 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).

‘€œ[Ross] is throwing and hitting off the tee,’€ Farrell said. ‘€œIt’€™s been initiated. It’€™s just not full speed yet.’€
