BALTIMORE — Cody Ross was placed on the 15-day disabled list. GM Ben Cherington, while not as optimistic as Bobby Valentine was earlier today, did say his fractured left foot may be less serious than initially feared.
Ross will remain in a walking boot for now.
Scott Podsednik was officially added to the roster. Kevin Youkilis was activated. Ryan Sweeney went on the seven-day concussion DL and Daisuke Matsuzaka went on the 60-day DL retroactive to the beginning of the season.
Also, Cherington said that Aaron Cook’s left knee is not healing as quickly as hoped and his return is not close.
