Ross could return to D-backs in near future

PHOENIX -- D-backs outfielder Cody Ross could return to action as soon as Friday, when the D-backs take on the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

Ross had Monday off and was scheduled to play back-to-back nine-inning games Tuesday and Wednesday for Triple-A Reno. It would be the first time he has played nine innings on his rehab assignment.

"Everything is feeling good," Ross said.

Ross suffered a fracture and dislocation of his right hip last August, but he has progressed well in his rehab. The D-backs have taken it slowly with him, but they are eager for his return.

"We want him back," D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said. "Trust me."
