Tyson Ross pitched brilliantly in Monday's win, shutting the Rangers out over seven innings.
Ross allowed only six base runners on three hits, two walks, and a hit batsman. It's only the second time Ross has been able to complete the seventh inning in his last 13 starts. He still has solid numbers though, owning a 3.27 ERA with a 1.35 WHIP and a 176/74 K/BB ratio over 165 innings. Ross will face the Dodgers at home next. Sep 1 - 1:04 AM

Tyson Ross earned his 9th win, yielding four runs in 6 1/3 innings versus the Nationals on Wednesday.

Ross hit a batter and allowed a double with one out in the seventh before departing. Relievers Shawn Kelley and Mark Rzepczynski allowed both inherited runners to score. Overall, not a bad outing by any means for the right-hander, as he scattered six hits and two walks while striking out nine. Ross owns a 3.42 ERA, a 1.38 WHIP, and a 169/72 K/BB ratio over 158 innings. He'll face the Phillies in a road start next.

Tyson Ross hurled six innings of one-run ball Wednesday in the Padres' 3-2 victory over the Braves.

Ross was left with a no-decision for the effort because the Padres didn't take the lead for good until the bottom of the seventh. The 28-year-old right-hander scattered six hits and three walks over his six frames, striking out five Atlanta batters. He'll get the Nationals on the road next time out.

Tyson Ross lasted just five innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Friday, surrendering four runs (two earned) on six hits.

Ross also issued three free passes while punching out five in the ballgame. A two-run blast by Nolan Arenado in the first inning accounted for the bulk of the damage against him. He'll once again search for his ninth win when he squares off against the Braves at home on Wednesday.

Tyson Ross allowed three earned runs over seven innings Saturday in a loss to the Phillies.

Ross gave up two runs in the top of the first inning on a double, a single, and a wild pitch. He settled in from there and wound up with eight strikeouts to just one walk, but the San Diego offense couldn't overcome the early deficit. Ross will carry a 3.39 ERA into his next start on the road against the Rockies.
Aug 9 - 12:00 AM

Tyson Ross allowed three runs (two earned) in six innings, earning his eighth win as the Padres vanquished the Brewers 13-5 on Monday.

Ross worked around seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts. Only one of the hits went for extra bases. Though he hasn't been as dominant as he was in 2014, the right-hander has strong numbers through 23 starts, boasting a 3.37 ERA with a 1.39 WHIP and a 142/63 K/BB ratio over 133 2/3 innings. Ross matches up with the Phillies at home next.
Aug 3 - 11:40 PM

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Cubs "would love to pull off a blockbuster" and land Tyson Ross and Craig Kimbrel from the Padres.

The Cubs, Padres and Red Sox reportedly discussed a possible three-team blockbuster deal, but Nightengale says the Cubs and Padres are dealing exclusively with each other on this one. It's unclear what would be headed to San Diego in the deal, but Chicago has numerous assets on the block like Starlin Castro and Javier Baez.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Red Sox are in the market for cost-controlled young pitching and "like Tyson Ross a lot."

They've also talked to the Indians about Carlos Carrasco. We haven't heard much from the Red Sox this week since they're out of the playoff hunt, with Crasnick saying they're "operating very quietly" in their pursuit of young rotation help. Ross, who is under team control through 2017, would certainly fit the bill.
Jul 31 - 9:17 AM

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Cubs are pushing hard to acquire Tyson Ross from the Padres.

Rival executives are convinced that the right-hander will be moved before Friday's trade deadline, with the Cubs as the club showing the most interest at the moment. The 28-year-old right-hander is relatively inexpensive and under team control through 2017, meaning the Padres should be able to net a nice return package.
Jul 30 - 10:14 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Tyson Ross is drawing "intense interest" from many.

Heyman suspects that the Astros may be at the forefront, though he also ties in the Blue Jays, Cubs, Dodgers, and "many, many others." Ross, 28, owns a 3.03 ERA and 332 strikeouts in 323 1/3 innings since the beginning of the 2014 season and he is under contract through 2017. Everybody loves a good, cost-controlled starting pitcher.
Jul 30 - 9:45 AM

Tyson Ross pitched five innings of one-run ball Wednesday in a victory over the Mets.

Maybe Ross's status as a trade candidate had something to do with him exiting after 83 pitches and not being pushed to pitch a sixth inning. His control wasn't the best tonight, as it often hasn't been this year, but he's just so darn difficult to get the ball in the air against. The homer he allowed to Lucas Duda tonight was just the fourth he's given up in 127 2/3 innings this season.
Jul 29 - 11:41 PM

ESPN's Jim Bowden reports that Tyson Ross has become the Blue Jays' "top trade target."

The issue, however, is how eager the Padres are to move him given his skill level and the fact that he's under team control through 2017. San Diego is also listening on James Shields, Andrew Cashner and Ian Kennedy and they'd surely prefer to trade any of those three over Ross. The Jays have also been connected to Jeff Samardzija, Mike Leake and others.
Jul 29 - 3:45 PM

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.
