Ross hasn't played since May 18 because of a fractured foot. He's hitting .271/.349/.534 on the season and has seen action at all three outfield positions. Podsednik, meanwhile, is playing above his head at .387/.409/.484.
Ross will play left field and bat seventh against the Marlins on Tuesday night. With Podsednik deactivated, the Sox will still have five outfielders on the DL.
