Tyson Ross (thoracic outlet) has yet to resume throwing off a mound after being scratched from his first rehab start last week due to back spasms.
The discomfort in Ross' back is getting better but isn't totally gone yet. The back issue will likely push back the right-hander's season debut at least 1-2 weeks. Ross had been hoping to join the Rangers' rotation in early May. Apr 17 - 8:02 PM

Tyson Ross (thoracic outlet) was scratched from a scheduled rehab start Wednesday due to back spasms.

Per the Rangers, these back spasms will set Ross back 5-7 days in his rehab. So long as this is not a lingering issue, though, he is drawing closer to making his 2017 debut. That could come at some point in early May. Ross is making his way back from surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome which he underwent in October.

Tyson Ross (thoracic outlet) threw 45 pitches over three innings in an extended spring training game Friday.

He'll next throw 60 pitches over four innings in extended spring on April 12. What the next step will be after that isn't clear, but you'd have to think Ross might be close to beginning a rehab assignment. He's hoping to join the Rangers' rotation sometime next month.
Apr 7 - 4:36 PM

Rangers placed RHP Tyson Ross on the 10-day disabled list with throacic outlet syndrome.

Ross had surgery last October and came along well this spring, but he needs more time. The hope is that he'll be ready to join the Blue Jays' rotation sometime in May.
Apr 2 - 12:41 PM

Tyson Ross (thoracic outlet syndrome surgery) is expected to throw a simulated game on Saturday.

Ross is expected to stretch things out to around 45 pitches over three innings. He'll be a bit behind to begin the year after surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, but the Rangers are optimistic that he could join the rotation by early May. Ross posted a 3.07 ERA with 9.2 K/9 between 2013-2015, so there's some nice upside if he comes back feeling good.
Mar 29 - 12:10 PM

Tyson Ross (thoracic outlet syndrome surgery) threw 20 pitches -- all of them fastballs -- during a live batting practice session on Wednesday.

Ross told Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that he felt fine and was mostly focusing on his mechanics. He obviously has some more hurdles to cross as he makes his way back from surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, but the Rangers are increasingly optimistic that he could be ready to join the rotation by early May.
Mar 22 - 1:45 PM

Tyson Ross (thoracic outlet syndrome surgery) could be ready to join the Rangers by early May.

Ross will throw live batting practice Wednesday for the first time since undergoing surgery last October. The real test will be how he responds to really ramping things up in game action, but the Rangers are feeling optimistic about him being a major contributor in their rotation this year.
Mar 22 - 12:26 PM

Tyson Ross (thoracic outlet surgery) will throw a live batting practice session on Wednesday.

It will be the first time he's faced hitters since he underwent thoracic outlet surgery last October. Ross has hit every benchmark in his recovery to this point, but obviously he has a ways to go. The Rangers are hoping he'll be ready to join their rotation at some point during the first half.
Mar 19 - 12:10 PM

Tyson Ross (thoracic outlet syndrome) will throw 25 times from 90 feet Friday and throw another bullpen session Saturday.

Ross resumed throwing off a mound earlier this week for the first time since undergoing thoracic outlet syndrome last October. The rehab is for the right-hander is going well, but he's probably going to miss at least the first month of the season and possibly quite a bit more.
Mar 10 - 4:42 PM

Tyson Ross (thoracic outlet syndrome) will throw a 15-pitch bullpen session on Monday.

Ross threw 21 pitches off a half-mound on Friday, but Monday will be his first time throwing off a regular mound since he had thoracic outlet syndrome surgery last October. "I have to approach it as my first time on the mound [after] the off-season," said Ross. "It’s about getting my work in, making sure my rhythm and tempo is down and getting a feel for the full-sized mound. It’s the first step of many and I have a big picture in mind." The Rangers aren't counting on Ross making his season debut until at least late April, and in all likelihood it will probably be quite a bit later than that.
Mar 5 - 1:20 PM

Tyson Ross (thoracic outlet syndrome) threw 21 pitches off a half-mound on Friday.

It's the first time he's thrown off anything but flat ground since he had thoracic outlet syndrome last October. Ross' rehab is coming along on schedule, but he probably won't be an option for the Rangers until June.
Mar 3 - 12:42 PM

Tyson Ross (thoracic outlet syndrome) will make 25 throws from 125 to 135 feet on Wednesday.

Assuming all goes well, he'll then throw 15 pitches on flat ground. Good news for Ross as he continues his rehab from surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome. The hope is that he could be ready to begin throwing off a mound by mid-March. Ross probably won't be ready to pitch for the Rangers until May or June, but he could make a big impact if he returns to full health.
Mar 1 - 10:42 AM

Tyson Ross (thoracic outlet surgery) is on track to begin throwing off a mound in mid-March.

Ross had thoracic outlet surgery last October and will get a late start to the season. Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News writes that Ross is not expected to be ready until the "latter stages of April," but a Rangers official told Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram a few weeks ago that Ross might not return until May or June. It figures to be a moving target for the righty.
Feb 17 - 4:14 PM

Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram was told by a Rangers official that the club expects Tyson Ross (thoracic outlet surgery) to make his season debut in May or June.

General manager Jon Daniels didn't provide a timetable on when he thinks Ross might return from last October's thoracic outlet surgery, but the goal is to have the righty healthy down the stretch next season. In other words, fantasy owners would be wise not to expect much, if anything, from Ross in the first half of 2017. Given the shaky history of thoracic outlet surgery patients and uncertain timetable, Ross makes for a high-upside but risky fantasy proposition in the upcoming season.
Jan 20 - 10:38 AM

Rangers signed RHP Tyson Ross to a one-year, $6 million contract.

The deal was reported last Friday and now it's official. Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reported the contract terms, which include some performance-based incentives. Ross was non-tendered by the Padres in December after undergoing surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, but the Rangers are willing to take a chance on a rebound. It's not a bad gamble at this price. However, it's unclear if he'll be ready for the start of the season.
