BALTIMORE (AP) - Boston Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington says
outfielder Cody Ross has a broken bone in his left foot and could be sidelined
Ross fouled a ball off his foot in Friday night's game against Philadelphia.
An MRI on Monday revealed a small fracture.
Cherington says Ross will get a second opinion in Baltimore, but he is almost
certainly headed to the disabled list.
Speaking before the Red Sox faced the Orioles on Monday night, Cherington
said Ross has a fractured navicular bone. He said such injuries usually take
between six to eight weeks to heal.
Ross is batting .271 with eight homers and 28 RBIs, one behind David Ortiz
for the team lead. He would be the sixth Boston outfielder on the DL.
