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.

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.

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.
Jan 19 - 5:13 PM

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the one-year contract that Tyson Ross agreed to with the Rangers is for $6 million plus incentives.

It's reportedly a very similar offer to what the Cubs came to the table with, but in the end Ross chose to pitch in Texas. He joins Cole Hamels and Yu Darvish atop what is beginning to look like a very formidable rotation as the Rangers look to compete for a division title in the American League West. There's still a chance that he won't be ready for the start of the regular season as he continues to recover from thoracic outlet surgery that he underwent in October.
Jan 14 - 9:29 AM

MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports that the Rangers have reached an agreement with Tyson Ross on a one-year contract.

It's unclear how much the deal is worth, but it figures to be loaded with incentives. Ross had thoracic outlet surgery last October and is a question mark for Opening Day, but it's hard not to like this move by the Rangers on a one-year gamble. If the righty can regain his stuff from 2013-15 (3.07 ERA, 526 strikeouts in 516 2/3 innings), the Rangers will have a dynamic arm.
Jan 13 - 5:07 PM

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Rangers are now being aggressive in trying to finalize a deal with free agent Tyson Ross.

The Rangers had reportedly had talks with the Padres about a potential trade for Ross before he was non-tendered in November and the right-hander met with the Rangers' brass this week. Along with the Rangers, the Cubs are also in hot pursuit of Ross and a deal with one of those two clubs seems most likely.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Nationals "also want" free agent starter Tyson Ross.

Tyson's little brother Joe is a member of the Nationals, but as usual this will all come down to money and Rosenthal seems to agree that the Rangers and Cubs are the current frontrunners here. The elder Ross made just one start at the major league level in 2016 due to shoulder troubles, and that was on Opening Day for the Padres. He needed surgery in October for thoracic outlet syndrome -- something that has derailed a number of promising pitching careers. San Diego non-tendered him in early December.
Jan 5 - 12:39 PM

According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, the Rangers and Cubs are the favorites for free agent starter Tyson Ross.

Ross met with members of the Rangers front office on Wednesday after spending time on the north side of Chicago earlier this offseason. It sounds like he could be close to making a final decision. The 29-year-old right-hander logged just one appearance at the major league level in 2016 due to shoulder troubles and he was non-tendered by the Padres on December 2. It's a high-risk, potentially-high-reward type of situation for the organization that ends up signing him. Ross is said to be seeking a contract in the $9-11 million range.
