Dave Ross Designated

Posted on: August 11, 2008 9:38 am

In an effort to try out more young players, the Reds designated catcher Dave Ross for assignment yesterday.  Ross had already cleared waivers.

The 31 year-old backstop hit .231/.381/.366 in 173 plate appearances this year.  He flashed prodigious power in '06, but not much since then.  Ross threw out 29% of attempted basestealers this year and 41% in '07.
