FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Tyson Ross has been the "focus" of the Cubs' trade talks with the Padres.
The Padres appear willing to trade anyone from their rotation, but Ross would probably be the least likely to be dealt since he's under team control through 2017. The Cubs have also expressed interest in Ian Kennedy and there's been some speculation that they could consider James Shields. Jul 27 - 10:03 PM

Tyson Ross has drawn interest from the Blue Jays, Astros, Dodgers, and Rangers, reports CBS Sports' Jon Heyman.

Heyman calls Ross "an extremely popular man on the trade market," and rightly so. The 28-year-old right-hander is under contractual control through 2017 and boasts a 3.05 ERA and 9.2 K/9 in 318 1/3 innings since the beginning of the 2014 season. It's going to take a big return for the Padres to give him up, but it does sound like they're listening.

Tyson Ross allowed four runs (three earned) over 5 2/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Marlins.

What's strange about the poor outing is that Ross struck out eight, walked zero and gave up no homers. That second bit is shocking given his ineffectiveness tonight, as Ross entered last in the bigs with 4.38 walks per nine (but also leading the league with 0.23 homers allowed per nine innings). Ross gets the Mets next time.

Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Astros have "had at least a preliminary conversation" with the Padres about Tyson Ross and Andrew Cashner.

They've also talked with the Phillies about Cole Hamels, although there's been some feeling that Hamels would reject a trade to the Astros. Houston has been connected to Johnny Cueto, as well. Both Ross and Cashner would be more than rentals for the Astros, as Ross is under team control through 2017 and Cashner through 2016. Drellich does add that the Astros "do seem prepared to part with top prospects, however, even for a rental."

Tyson Ross allowed three earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Rockies.

San Diego wound up winning the back-and-forth game 5-4. Ross was good but not great, yielding six hits and two walks while striking out six. The 28-year-old right-hander has a 3.38 ERA and 124 strikeouts in 117 innings this season, though spotty control (1.39 WHIP, 57 walks) has doomed some of his outings. He'll face the Marlins next.
Jul 18 - 11:45 PM

Tyson Ross pitched phenomenally in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Rangers, hurling 6 2/3 innings of shutout ball while striking out six.

Ross and Yovani Gallardo matched up in what was a sneaky pitcher's duel on Sunday, with both pitchers entering the game holding ERA's under 3.60. Both cashed in on that potential, but Ross was the one who threw the better game. He scattered three hits and didn't allow a run in the contest while racking up six strikeouts against just two walks. Despite a solid 3.34 ERA, Ross has had his share of control issues this season and will take a 1.42 WHIP and 118/55 K/BB ratio over 110 1/3 innings into the All-Star Break. If he can drop that WHIP, he could be in for a strong second half of the season.
Jul 12 - 6:34 PM

Tyson Ross tossed two shutout innings in a rain-shortened start, and the Padres dropped Tuesday's game to the Pirates.

Ross allowed two hits, didn't issue a walk, and struck out one. The right-hander didn't take the mound following the delay while opposing starter Francisco Liriano did. Over 18 starts, Ross has a 3.56 ERA, a 1.45 WHIP, and a 112/53 K/BB ratio in 103 2/3 innings. He'll start next at home against the Rockies after the All-Star break.
Jul 7 - 11:49 PM

Tyson Ross was handed a no-decision Thursday after allowing three runs over six innings against the Cardinals.

Ross collected his first career home run in the no-decision. He struggled with his control once again, walking five batters while throwing 69 out of 115 pitches for strikes. Ross has now walked five batters in three out of his last four starts. While he has struck out 111 batters in 102 1/3 innings this season, he's averaging 4.69 BB/9. He has been a source of frustration for fantasy owners during the first half.

Despite walking five, Tyson Ross beat the Diamondbacks by allowing two runs in six innings and striking out seven on Friday.

It's a pretty typical Ross start this season. That he hasn't been the same fantasy pitcher last year is part his high walk and part the Padres' terrible defense. We'd say the latter is a bigger factor than the former, though both are problems. He's struck out 105 and allowed just three homers in 95 2/3 innings, so even with the 48 walks, he should have a much better ERA than his current 3.57 mark.
Jun 27 - 1:05 AM

Tyson Ross limited the Diamondbacks to one run over nine innings Saturday in an 8-1 Padres victory.

It was the first complete game of the season for Ross, who threw two complete games last year. He gave up only four hits and one walk while striking out nine. The 28-year-old right-hander will bring a 3.61 ERA into his next start at home against this same Diamondbacks team. When his control is right, Ross is lethal.
Jun 21 - 1:01 AM

Tyson Ross fell to 3-7 after yielding four runs in five innings to the Athletics on Monday.

The Athletics used four singles, a walk, and a stolen base to scratch out three runs in the third inning against Ross. In the fifth, they added another run on a walk and two singles. Ross, overall, allowed seven hits, walked five, and struck out six. Control continues to be an issue for the young right-hander, as his 42 walks lead qualified pitchers by a wide margin. That he has a 4.02 ERA despite that is actually impressive. He also has a 1.59 WHIP and an 89/42 K/BB ratio in 80 2/3 innings. Ross will vie for better results this weekend in Arizona facing the Diamondbacks.
Jun 16 - 1:40 AM

Tyson Ross took his sixth loss of the season on Wednesday after giving up three runs over six innings versus the Braves.

The Braves pounded out two runs on four singles in the second inning, then added another in the third inning on another pair of singles. Ross gave up nine hits overall while walking two and striking out five. The 28-year-old hasn't shown any dominance the way he did last year as he's only reached the seventh inning twice. Ross will bring a 3.81 ERA, 1.53 WHIP, and 83/37 K/BB ratio over 75 2/3 innings into a home start against the Athletics.
Jun 10 - 10:08 PM

Tyson Ross picked up his third victory of the season on Friday, allowing two runs on five hits over his five frames.

He could've gone on much longer had it not been for a lengthy rain delay. Ross racked up seven strikeouts in his five innings while issuing three free passes. The only damage against him came on a two-run single off the bat of Joey Votto in the fifth inning. Ross will carry a 3.75 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 78/35 K/BB into Wednesday's outing against the Braves in Atlanta.
Jun 5 - 11:19 PM

Tyson Ross took a no-decision after allowing three runs (two earned) in six innings as the Padres lost 4-3 to the Angels on Monday.

Ross was fortunate to only allow the three runs as he gave up 10 hits in the outing along with a walk. The Angels also stole three bases off of him and catcher Derek Norris. Ross used seven strikeouts to limit runner advancement. The young right-hander has pitched well, but not at the level that led to an All-Star bid in 2014. He has a 3.84 ERA, a 1.50 WHIP, and a 69/30 K/BB ratio in 58 2/3 innings. Ross will face the Pirates at home in his next outing.
May 26 - 12:33 AM

Tyson Ross yielded three runs on four hits across seven innings in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Cubs.

On a positive note, he struck out eight. On the negative side of things, he walked three. Yes, control continues to be an issue, as Ross leads the National League with 29 walks allowed. He's never had great control, but if he can improve it to his career norms, the ERA and WHIP should also normalize. Ross has a 3.93 ERA this year against a 3.72 career mark, and he has a 1.46 career WHIP versus a 1.34 career rate.
