Tyson Ross shut out the Giants for eight innings and struck out nine in a victory Friday.
Ross was shaky and wild in his first two starts of the year, but he's allowed one run in 15 innings and posted a 16/2 K/BB ratio in the last two. He's talented enough to remain a useful mixed-league starter all year long. Apr 19 - 1:03 AM

Tyson Ross allowed one run over seven innings Sunday, and the Padres topped the Tigers by a score of 5-1.

Max Scherzer was the pitcher to watch coming into the game, but Ross stole the spotlight with his strong outing. He gave up six hits and a walk while striking out seven in his seven innings of work. He'll take a 1-2 record and 3.12 ERA into his start against the Giants next weekend.
Apr 13 - 8:23 PM

Tyson Ross allowed seven runs (two earned) in 5 1/3 innings in Tuesday's start against the Indians, resulting in a loss.

Ross wasn't helped by a defense that committed two errors behind him, but walked five and allowed five hits, including a three-run home run to David Murphy. Further, the right-hander only struck out two. His first two starts of the season have left much to be desired, but Ross remains a potential breakout candidate.
Apr 8 - 10:53 PM

Tyson Ross will start Tuesday against the Indians.

Monday's game was postponed due to rain, but Ross will remain on his regular turn. Eric Stults and Robbie Erlin will start in Wednesday's doubleheader.
Apr 7 - 5:24 PM

Padres manager Bud Black announced Saturday that he'll tweak his rotation for next week's series against the Indians, with Tyson Ross being pushed back an extra day.

Robbie Erlin will instead start the series on Monday, giving Ross an extra day of rest and also splitting the two southpaws in the rotation. Eric Stults will work in the series finale on Wednesday.
Apr 5 - 11:52 AM

Tyson Ross coughed up four runs -- three earned -- over five innings of a 5-1 loss Wednesday against the Dodgers.

He managed to strike out seven, but Ross also walked four, which led to a highly inefficient 100 pitches over five frames. After logging a 3.17 ERA over 125 innings last season, Ross was a popular sleeper choice entering the season. He pitched better in the second half of 2013 than he ever has in his life, however, so owners should observe Ross' work over the next few months with eyes wide open. Ross gets the Indians in Cleveland next week.
Apr 3 - 1:21 AM

Tyson Ross rebounded from a poor start to hold the White Sox to one run over 6 2/3 innings Saturday.

Ross was facing a split squad, but he scattered six hits and three walks over his 94 pitches. He also struck out four in the outing. Ross is a popular breakout candidate this year after posting a 3.17 ERA in 125 innings last season.
Mar 22 - 10:49 PM

Tyson Ross was hit hard in 4 1/3 innings during Monday's start, a 9-7 loss to the Rockies.

Ross allowed six runs on 12 hits. He did strikeout six without issuing a walk, giving fans of defense-independent stats a reason to ignore Monday's outing. Ross had otherwise been enjoying a good spring.
Mar 17 - 7:05 PM

Tyson Ross allowed three runs in 3 1/3 innings during Wednesday's start against the Indians.

Ross issued three walks and allowed four hits, including a two-run home run to Carlos Santana in the first inning. The 26-year-old is looking to build on a breakout 2013 season when he posted a 3.17 ERA in 125 innings split between the rotation and the bullpen. He'll pitch out of the middle of the Padres' rotation this season.
Mar 12 - 5:28 PM

Tyson Ross put together another strong outing in Friday's victory over the Brewers, hurling three scoreless innings without allowing a hit.

Ross walked two and fanned three on the evening. Despite a 3-8 record, Ross had a terrific season in 2013, compiling a 3.17 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 119/44 K/BB ratio over 125 innings. While an increased workload may be a slight concern, his favorable home park and strikeout potential make him an intriguing target in the later rounds of mixed league drafts.
Mar 8 - 12:18 AM

Padres avoided arbitration with RHP Tyson Ross by agreeing to a one-year, $1.98 million contract.

It was Ross' first year of arbitration eligibility after he qualified for Super Two status. Ross had an underrated semi-breakout season in 2013, posting a 3.17 ERA with 119 strikeouts over 125 frames for the Padres. The righty is a fantasy sleeper heading into 2014.
Jan 16 - 9:54 PM

Tyson Ross underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left (non-throwing) shoulder on Wednesday.

Ross is expected to be 100 percent in time for spring training. The 26-year-old had a mini-breakout this season, posting a 3.17 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 119/44 K/BB ratio over 125 innings. He figures to be a popular target in the late rounds of fantasy drafts next year.

Tyson Ross delivered a quality start in Sunday's season finale against the Giants, allowing three runs on seven hits over six innings.

Ross punched out seven on the day while issuing just one free pass. Despite his 3-8 record, the 26-year-old right-hander blossomed in the Padres rotation this season, compiling a 3.17 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 119/44 K/BB ratio over 125 innings. He'll all but assuredly maintain a spot in the Padres rotation heading into the 2014 season and makes for an excellent target in the later rounds of fantasy drafts.
Sun, Sep 29, 2013 09:12:00 PM

Tyson Ross worked eight innings of one-run ball on Tuesday in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks.

The right-hander struck out six, walked three and coughed up only three hits. Unfortunately, one of those hits was a Paul Goldschmidt solo homer in the sixth inning that cost him the win. Ross remains 3-8 with a 3.10 ERA, but he'll have one last chance to get win No. 4 in Sunday's season finale against San Francisco.
Wed, Sep 25, 2013 02:20:00 AM

Tyson Ross was terrific Wednesday, allowing just two runs on three hits while striking out seven over seven frames in a 3-2 win over the Pirates.

He didn't issue any walks, needing 90 pitches to cover the seven frames. It comes after Ross lasted just two-thirds of an inning in his last start, though he's mostly been very good since rejoining the rotation, posting a 3.00 ERA and 72/19 K/BB ratio over 66 innings. He'll try to keep it going next week at home against the D'Backs.
