The Associated Press reports the news on Saturday the Washington Nationals have activated right handed starting pitcher Joe Ross from the 60 day disabled list. Ross had been sidelined with inflammation of his right shoulder since his last starting pitching assignment on July 2, 2016. Ross had been placed on the 15 day disabled list on July 3, 2016. Ross had been transferred from the 15 to the 60 day disabled list on September 2, 2016. Washington Nationals manager Dusty Baker will limit Ross to at least three innings of work on Sunday when the Atlanta Braves host their National League East Division rivals at Turner Field in Atlanta Georgia on Sunday. Ross pitched one game for the Hagerstown Suns which is the Class A minor league team of the Nationals and four games for the Syracuse Chiefs which is the AAA minor league team of the Nationals in a rehabilitation assignment. The Nationals will have to decide whether to keep Ross as a starting pitcher or have him work as a relief pitcher for the rest of the 2016 regular baseball season.
