CHICAGO -- Catcher David Ross, on the seven-day concussion disabled list since May 12, worked out again today.
 
“Good day to day,” manager John Farrell said. “He ran, swung the bat through. We’re hopeful that we can get him into some at-bats somewhere before the week is out. So he’s certainly turned the corner in a positive way.
 
“[He hit] off the tee, but the intensity to his workouts have increased. Some straight-ahead sprinting, some change of direction, trying to put him in situations that might replicate in-game. And there’s been no issues or no ill effects as a result of the concussion.”
 
Ross will have a rehab assignment before he is activated.
 
“I think in fairness to David we’ve got to get him into some game activity where he can see some pitches at game speed,” Farrell said. “Were’ getting closer to that potential date, but nothing is indicated or planned on a calendar yet.”
