Padres manager Andy Green said Friday that Tyson Ross (shoulder) could pick up a baseball within the next week.
The right-hander has been in San Diego doing weighted-ball drills while he continues to recover from inflammation in his pitching shoulder. They're going to play things very cautiously in his rehab, but it at least sounds as though he's trending in the right direction. May 27 - 7:53 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder) still has not been cleared for throwing.

Ross has been on the disabled list since April 9 with inflammation in his right shoulder and there is no timetable for a possible activation date. "He's still doing his stabilization exercises, feeling good," Padres manager Andy Green said Wednesday. "That process is ongoing until they determine that it's time to pick up a ball and throw."

Tyson Ross will not require surgery on his right shoulder after an MRI revealed no structural damage.

Padres manager Andy Green wasn't able to reveal the exact diagnosis after Thursday's game, but Ross will be shut down for a couple weeks. "The good news was [it's] non-surgical," Green said. "We'll take a couple more weeks, re-evaluate, see where he is. Hopefully he's back on the mound quick for us." The Padres treated Ross' shoulder soreness aggressively initially and he had a setback when he played catch on Tuesday, so they figure to proceed more cautiously this time around. We could know more about a potential timetable in a couple weeks.

Tyson Ross will undergo an MRI on his right shoulder.

Ross was placed on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation on April 9. While he did play catch on Tuesday, the Padres would like more information on the injury. Hence, an MRI. There was not thought to be structural damage in the shoulder, but this MRI should clear that up with a certainty one way or the other.
Apr 20 - 7:44 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder) played catch Tuesday for the first time since being placed on the disabled list.

The hope is he can progress quickly from here. Ross got lit up for eight runs -- seven earned -- over 5 1/3 innings in an Opening Day loss to the Dodgers and then landed on the disabled list a few days later after complaining of soreness in his right shoulder. Tests showed it to be inflammation, not structural damage. An early-May return seems like a possibility.
Apr 19 - 7:50 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder) is expected to resume throwing early in the coming week.

Padres manager Andy Green said Sunday that Ross will begin throwing in the next day or so. He has been on the disabled list since getting rocked by the Dodgers on Opening Day, but it doesn't seem as though he'll need an extended stay on the DL. Expect him to rejoin the Padres rotation before the end of April.
Apr 17 - 4:23 PM

Padres placed RHP Tyson Ross on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.

The move was made retroactive to April 5. Ross had been scheduled to start Sunday against Colorado but now James Shields will move up a day to pitch on normal rest. He got rocked against the Dodgers on Opening Day (5 1/3 IP, 9 H, 8 R) and said he felt something in his shoulder during his last bullpen session. Ross doesn't consider the injury serious and is hoping to be back as soon as he's eligible to return on April 20.
Apr 9 - 5:43 PM

Tyson Ross was lit up for eight runs -- seven earned -- across 5 1/3 innings in Monday's loss to the Dodgers.

He would have had to really been on to beat Clayton Kershaw, and Ross most certainly was not in this one. The right-hander surrendered nine hits, walked one, hit two batters and also threw a wild pitch. These kinds of clunkers should be few and far between for Ross, although it will be hard for him to bounce back this weekend in Colorado.
Apr 4 - 10:58 PM

Tyson Ross turned in a nice outing in Wednesday's win over the Mariners, hurling three innings of one-run ball.

Ross allowed just two hits while striking out four. He did not walk a batter. In spring play, he has walked six in 14 innings. Free passes are something to keep an eye on here, as the 28-year-old right-hander issued 84 of them last season in 196 innings -- the most of any qualified starter for the 2015 campaign. Despite that horrifying number, he still managed to hold a 3.26 ERA with a 9.7 K/9. He makes for a frustrating starter in some aspects, but has a posted K/9 of at least 9.0 in each of the last two seasons.
Mar 30 - 6:30 PM

Tyson Ross didn't make it out of the first inning in his start Tuesday against the Cubs.

Ross walked the first batter he faced, Dexter Fowler, and then served up a run-scoring double to Jason Heyward. The floodgates remained open from there. Kyle Schwarber drew a walk, Jeimer Candelario hit an RBI double, Javier Baez hit an RBI single, Tim Federowicz added another RBI double, and then Arismendy Alcantara drew another walk. Padres manager Andy Green called off the dogs from there, pulling Ross for Philip Humber. It's nothing to fret over here in mid-March. Ross will try for much better results in his fourth Cactus League start.
Mar 15 - 7:38 PM

Tyson Ross gave up two runs over three innings in his Cactus League start Thursday against the Indians.

The only damage was a two-run double by Collin Cowgill in the second inning. Ross walked none and struck out three batters. The 28-year-old led all qualified starters with 84 walks last season, but he posted a 3.26 ERA while averaging a career-high 9.7 K/9. He might not be an asset in WHIP, but he’s plenty valuable in mixed leagues.
Mar 10 - 5:58 PM

Tyson Ross threw two scoreless innings in a Cactus League start against the Rockies on Saturday.

Ross worked around a hit and a walk while striking out one. He enjoyed a very strong season in 2015, posting a 3.26 ERA with 212 strikeouts in 196 innings of work. He's already been named the team's Opening Day starter this year, kicking off what should be another good year in San Diego.
Mar 5 - 6:37 PM

Tyson Ross indicated Friday that while the club hasn't approached him about a potential contract extension yet, he is open to the idea.

"I love the people of the city. The organization’s treated me well and it’s a place I’ve lived for the last two years. It’s kind of home for me now and I’d love to continue playing there" Ross told Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union Tribune. He'll earn $9.625 million in 2016, his second year of arbitration, and will lead a talented Padres rotation.
Feb 19 - 9:19 PM

Padres manager Andy Green on Friday named Tyson Ross the team's Opening Day starter.

Ross will be followed in the rotation by James Shields and Andrew Cashner. Shields obviously is the senior member in this group, but Ross is an easy choice to lead the rotation. The 28-year-old has put up a 3.03 ERA across 64 starts over the last two seasons in San Diego while striking out over a batter per inning.
Feb 19 - 11:41 AM

Padres and RHP Tyson Ross avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $9.625 million contract.

The right-hander nearly doubles his salary from last season in his second year of arbitration eligibility. The raise was certainly well-earned, as Ross put up a 3.26 ERA with 212 strikeouts across 196 innings for the Padres. He'll be counted on as a big piece of their rotation again in 2016.
