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.
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.
Jan 5 - 8:50 AM

T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Rangers are "being aggressive in trying to get a deal done" for Tyson Ross.

Sullivan notes that "talks are definitely heating up" between the Rangers and Ross. In December, FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman specifically tagged the Cubs, Indians, Padres and Pirates (along with the Rangers) as a handful of teams that were interested in the 29-year-old right-hander. The Padres non-tendered him on December 2. Ross made just one start this past season due to shoulder issues and ultimately underwent surgery in October for thoracic outlet syndrome. He is said to be seeking a contract in the range of $9-11 million.
Jan 4 - 4:41 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports lists the Cubs, Rangers, Indians, Padres, and Pirates "among 20 or so teams" currently showing interest in free agent Tyson Ross.

Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com reported earlier this month that the Cubs have had "continued dialogue" with Ross since the Winter Meetings and Heyman relays a report suggesting the right-hander recently paid a visit to the north side of Chicago. Ross, 29, was non-tendered by the Padres on December 2 after fighting shoulder troubles throughout the 2016 campaign. He made only one start (on Opening Day) and needed surgery in October for thoracic outlet syndrome. It will be a total gamble for the team that signs him, but Ross isn't all that far removed from being considered one of the top starting pitchers in baseball. He had a 3.07 ERA and 526 strikeouts in 516 2/3 innings with the Padres between 2013-2015.

According to Patrick Mooney of CSN Chicago, the Cubs have had continued dialogue with free agent right-hander Tyson Ross since the winter meetings ended.

The 29-year-old hurler was limited to just one start in 2016 before shoulder woes wiped out his season. He's reportedly seeking a contract in the range of $9-11 million, which is around what he would've made through the arbitration process had he been tendered a contract by the Padres.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Bill Brink reports that the Pirates have been in contact with Tyson Ross.

Ross was non-tendered by the Padres on December 2. The 29-year-old right-hander is said to be seeking a contract in the range of $9-11 million. He made only one start in 2016 before undergoing season-ending surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome. Per the Dallas Morning News' Evan Grant, the Rangers are also showing interest in Ross.
Wed, Dec 7, 2016 11:48:00 PM

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that Tyson Ross' asking price is in the $9-11 million range.

And according to Grant, that may not include incentives. The Padres opted to non-tender Ross rather than give him a similar salary through arbitration, but some team might be willing to take a chance even as he's making his way back from surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome. There's just not much out there in free agency.
Wed, Dec 7, 2016 03:53:00 PM

According to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News, the Rangers have done "significant homework" on free agent right-hander Tyson Ross.

Ross was non-tendered by the Padres last week after making just one start in 2016 before undergoing surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome. He's a big question mark for the start of 2017 and beyond, but the state of the free agent market will make him intriguing to plenty of teams.
Wed, Dec 7, 2016 02:01:00 PM

Padres general manager A.J. Preller said Friday that the club would consider re-signing Tyson Ross at a lower cost.

Ross spent the past four years as the ace of the Padres' staff before being non-tendered on Friday. Shoulder woes limited him to just one start in 2016 while earning $9.625 million.

Padres non-tendered RHP Tyson Ross.

The 29-year-old right-hander made just one start before he was shut down for the season with a shoulder issue. He eventually required surgery in October for thoracic outlet syndrome which puts his status in question for the start of the 2017 season. Still, it's a bit of a surprising move after Ross pitched to a 3.16 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 9.2 K/9 over 522 innings since joining the club in 2013. He'll be an interesting commodity on the free agent market.
