Cody Ross To Open Season On Disabled List

By Bryan Rose

Not all that shocking considering the news yesterday – but after an MRI revealed a serious enough strain, Cody Ross will open the 2011 campaign on the disabled list. So barring another late injury, this almost all but ends Travis Ishikawa’s tenure as a San Francisco Giant as Nate Schierholtz will be relied upon to man right field until Ross’ return.

The nature of Ross’ right calf strain is still unknown to the public (though the early rumored estimate is three weeks) – which isn’t the most welcoming news as calf strains can range from extremely minor to extremely debilitating – just ask the Phillies’ Jimmy Rollins.
