Red Sox activate David Ross, send Ryan Lavarnway to Pawtucket

The Red Sox have activated catcher David Ross from the 7-day disabled list.

The Red Sox have activated catcher David Ross from the seven-day disabled list, sending Ryan Lavarnway back down to Triple-A Pawtucket in the process.

Ross was injured in the May 11th game against the Toronto Blue Jays after taking a pair of foul balls to the mask. While the league's special 7-day disabled list for concussions would have allowed him back early in the week, he's taken a little while longer to get up to speed, making his first (and only) rehab start last night in Portland.

Ross has done excellent work for the Red Sox so far this year as a super-backup to Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Behind the plate he's provided a comforting presence for Boston pitchers both as an experienced game caller and generally excellent defender, and with a .209/.320/.512 line, he's doing just fine when he steps up to bat as well.

Sox fans can expect Ross to resume that same comfortable role now that he's back, with Jarrod Saltalamacchia still getting the majority of the at bats, but Ross still enjoying plenty of playing time.
