Padres and RHP Tyson Ross avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $5.25 million contract.
Ross had a breakout season for the Padres in 2014, posting a 2.81 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 195/72 K/BB ratio over 195 2/3 innings. However, he enters 2015 as a bit of an injury red flag after ending last year with a forearm issue. Jan 16 - 3:13 PM

Tyson Ross will be shut down for the season after being diagnosed with a slight strain of flexor muscles in right forearm.

The Padres' doctors aren't overly concerned about the injury, but there's obviously no reason for them to allow Ross to make another start. A first-time All-Star in 2014, Ross' season ends with a 2.81 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 195/72 K/BB ratio over 195 2/3 innings. Joe Wieland will start for the Padres on Wednesday versus the Rockies.

Tyson Ross will miss another start after feeling continued soreness in his lower forearm while playing catch Friday.

The Padres have yet to officially rule Ross out for the season, but there's little to no chance we'll see him again. He's already easily set a career high with 195 1/3 innings. Robbie Erlin will get another start in Ross' place on Tuesday versus the Rockies and is a nice streaming option.

The Padres have yet to provide an update on the status of Tyson Ross (shoulder), but it sounds as though he could be shut down for the remainder of the season.

The right-hander has had a tremendous season, registering a 2.81 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 195/72 K/BB ratio, but he has already logged a career-high 195 1/3 innings. With nothing left to play for, the smart move on the Padres end would be to just call it a season and let Ross get fully rested and ready to go for 2015.

Padres manager Bud Black said Tuesday that the next 3-4 days are "critical" for the future status of Tyson Ross.

Ross's next scheduled start has been pushed back indefinitely due to what has only been described as "general soreness." The Padres have not yet shut him down, as they want to see how he reacts to treatment. Ross has already easily set a career high with 195 1/3 innings, so don't be surprised if the Pads ultimately decide to shut him down.

Tyson Ross' next scheduled start will be pushed back a few days because the right-hander is dealing with general soreness after his last outing.

Ross was rocked for six runs -- four earned -- in three innings Saturday in an uncharacteristically poor showing. It doesn't appear to be something to be overly concerned about at the moment. Robbie Erlin will get the ball on Thursday versus the Phillies, with Ross hoping to start over the weekend or possibly early next week.

Tyson Ross surrendered six runs -- four earned -- in three innings Saturday in a loss to Arizona.

It was one of the ugliest outings of the season for Ross, who entered the start with a 2.66 ERA and watched it rise to 2.81. The 27-year-old right-hander might be hitting a wall here in mid-September. He's thrown 195 2/3 innings this season after totaling 136 2/3 innings between the minors and majors in 2013. Ross will get the Phillies at home next time out.

Tyson Ross gave up a three-run homer, the only runs he allowed, over 5 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

Ross was far from effective, giving up seven hits and walking four, but he did well to keep the damage to just the three-run home run. Ross also struck out seven in the game. The loss pulled his record back to an even 13-13, and Ross owns a 2.66 ERA. Ross has an easier task up next, taking on the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Tyson Ross struck out eight and allowed one run in six innings in Monday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Ross scattered six hits and walked two in earning the win. The effort moved him to 13-12 for the season. Perhaps the only question mark on what was a nice start might be if Ross should have been allowed to throw 114-pitches in just six innings for a dead-in-the-water Padres team. That aside, it was another great outing. Opposing hitters are batting just .225 against Ross, who's having a breakout season. He's struck out 176 in 181 innings and is posting a career-low ERA (2.64) and a 1.16 WHIP.

Tyson Ross improved to 12-12 by holding the Brewers to one run over 6 1/3 innings on Tuesday.

Ross struck out six, walked two and scattered four hits in the strong outing. We weren't surprised. Ross is one of the best fantasy bets in the game when pitching at Petco, where he'd gone 3-0 with a 0.96 ERA in his last four starts and posted a 1.94 ERA prior to tonight. Ross (2.64 ERA overall) has another home start coming up, this one against the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Tyson Ross held the Dodgers to two runs over eight innings in a tough-luck loss on Thursday.

Outside of Justin Turner's two-run homer in the eighth inning, Ross was superb. He struck out six, walked two, and had given up just two hits prior to Carl Crawford reaching on an infield single and Turner blasting him home immediately thereafter. Ross has given up more than two earned runs only once since June 16. Now 11-12 with a 2.68 ERA, Ross hosts Milwaukee on Tuesday.
Fri, Aug 22, 2014 12:47:00 AM

Tyson Ross dropped to 11-11 on the year after giving up three runs over six innings against the Cardinals on Friday.

This was the first time since June 16 that he allowed more than two earned runs in a start, snapping a streak of 10 starts. Ross put himself in an early hole by giving up two runs in the first inning and his offense failed to get much done against Lance Lynn and company. He walked four and struck out just two in the loss. Ross will bring a 2.70 ERA into a start against the Dodgers on the road next week.

Tyson Ross held the Pirates to two runs over six innings to earn the win Sunday.

Things started as poorly as possible for Ross, as a Starling Marte single and Gregory Polanco homer made it 2-0 after two batters, but he buckled down to keep the Pirates off the board the rest of the way. The right-hander allowed six hits and two walks, striking out three, on the afternoon. The win was Ross' 11th of the season, and his 160 strikeouts are fourth-most in the National League. He'll take on the Cardinals, a team he limited to one run over six innings for his 10th win, in St. Louis on Friday.

Tyson Ross struck out seven, allowing two runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Braves on Sunday.

Ross has been near-automatic for over two months -- he's turned a quality start in each of his last nine starts dating back to June 21. On Sunday, he gave up five hits and two walks over his six innings. Ross couldn't improve on his 10-10 record, but the All-Star has a 2.62 ERA through 24 starts. He'll square off with the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Tyson Ross struck out seven while allowing one run over six innings in a victory over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Ross put himself in several bad spots with unforced errors, but managed to miss bats when he needed to, negating five walks and four hits. The right-hander came into this game with a 1.03 ERA in July, the NL's best mark, and he just completed his first career three-start win streak. Ross is riding the majors' second best groundball percentage (behind Dallas Keuchel) and better than a strikeout per inning into a breakout season. The first-time All-Star brings a 10-10 record and 2.60 ERA into a start versus the Braves this weekend.
