San Diego, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Arizona Diamondbacks announced Monday they have activated outfielder Cody Ross from the 15-day disabled list and reinstated pitcher Daniel Hudson from the 60-day DL.
Hudson, a 16-game winner for the Diamondbacks in 2011, will be on an active major-league roster for the first time in over two years when Arizona plays in San Diego on Monday. The right-hander has undergone two Tommy John surgeries to his elbow since last pitching in the big leagues on June 26, 2012.
Arizona manager Kirk Gibson has said that Hudson, who has allowed one run over six innings in six rehab appearances between the D-backs' Rookie League affiliate and Triple-A Reno, will be used as a reliever over the season's final month.
Ross has been out since July 21 due to a strained left calf. The veteran is hitting .238 with two home runs and 11 RBI over 66 games this season.
