Tyson Ross was solid on Monday in a losing effort against the Giants, yielding two runs in seven innings.
Both runs scored in the third, when Ross issued three walks -- the only three he allowed -- to help the Giants take an early lead. Other than that, he held the Giants' bats silent. He gave up seven hits and struck out five. Ross has battled control problems through six starts this season, leaving him 1-3 with a 4.15 ERA, a 1.59 WHIP, and a 42/21 K/BB ratio in 34 2/3 innings. He'll try to get back in the win column over the weekend in a road start against the Diamondbacks. May 5 - 1:05 AM

Tyson Ross got the loss on Tuesday versus the Astros, serving up four runs in five innings.

Ross was hurt by center fielder Wil Myers in the first inning, as a deep fly ball hit by Evan Gattis ricocheted off of Myers' glove, then off of his head over the fence in center field for a home run. Ross otherwise wasn't that bad, giving up five hits and two walks while striking out nine. It was good to see him limit the walks, as he entered the start with 16 over his first four starts. The talented right-hander will bring a 4.55 ERA, a 1.63 WHIP, and a 37/18 K/BB over 27 2/3 innings ratio into a start against the Giants at AT&T Park.
Apr 29 - 1:47 AM

Tyson Ross left with a loss on Thursday against the Rockies, giving up two runs in five innings of work.

Ross walked in a run in the first inning, then allowed a tie-breaking solo home run to Corey Dickerson in the fifth. The right-hander struggled with his control, walking four batters, and he allowed six hits but was mostly able to stay out of danger. He struck out seven on the afternoon. Now with four starts under his belt, Ross has a concerning 28/16 K/BB ratio in 22 2/3 innings along with his 3.97 ERA. He'll try to show better control when he takes on the Astros at home in his next start.
Apr 23 - 6:10 PM

Tyson Ross took a no-decision Saturday after giving up three runs in 5 2/3 innings against the Cubs.

Ross held the Cubs scoreless through the first four innings, but he gave up a pair in the fifth inning and allowed a go-ahead solo homer to Miguel Montero in the sixth. The Cubs would eventually win in extras. Ross struck out nine and walked five, so he was at 115 pitches when he was pulled in the sixth. Ross has 21 strikeouts in 17 2/3 innings this season and hasn't had a disaster outing yet, but he has issued 12 walks. The shaky control is worth watching.
Apr 18 - 6:41 PM

Tyson Ross recorded eight strikeouts over six innings in Sunday's win over the Giants.

In addition to the eight strikeouts, Ross allowed five hits and three runs. He also walked four, which helps explain how he had already thrown 101 pitches by the end of the sixth inning. Only 58 of those went for strikes. Ross allowed solitary runs in the second, third and sixth innings, but he managed to dodge the big inning. Ross averaged 9 K/9 last season and has the kind of arm that will rack up the strikeouts by the end of the year. He'll try to be more efficient with his pitches when he faces off with the Cubs in his next start.
Apr 12 - 9:17 PM

Tyson Ross yielded two runs over six innings in a no-decision as the Padres defeated the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Ross allowed a fair amount of base runners on six hits and three walks, but the Dodgers were only able to plate runs in the sixth, when Yasiel Puig and Adrian Gonzalez hit back-to-back doubles to lead off the frame, and Howie Kendrick followed up with a single. Ross also struck out four on the evening. The talented right-hander will match up against the Giants at home in his next outing.
Apr 8 - 2:18 AM

Tyson Ross, making his final Cactus League start, held the Brewers scoreless over three innings on Thursday.

Ross limited the opposition to two hits and a walk while striking out one. He ends the spring having allowed six earned runs in 21 2/3 innings on 16 hits and eight walks with 25 strikeouts. Ross broke out last season with a 2.81 ERA and an average of a strikeout per inning and the soon-to-be 28-year-old is a good bet to post similar numbers in 2015.
Apr 2 - 5:51 PM

Tyson Ross struck out 12 hitters over six innings, allowing two runs, in a Cactus League win over the Rangers Saturday.

Ross had everything working, striking out 12 of the 24 batters he faced on the day. The right-hander gave up six hits and walked a batter on the afternoon. Ross has a 2.89 ERA this spring and should once again be one of the best starters in the National League in 2015.
Mar 28 - 7:17 PM

Tyson Ross was superb in Monday's start against the White Sox as he tossed five shutout innings.

Ross had the White Sox on their collective back foot all afternoon, limiting them to just one hit and one walk while racking up five strikeouts. The 27-year-old right-hander was quietly elite for the Padres last season, finishing with a 2.81 ERA and a 195/72 K/BB ratio over 195 2/3 innings. As long as he stays healthy, Ross should continue to post elite numbers in 2015.
Mar 23 - 7:10 PM

Tyson Ross yielded three runs in 3 2/3 innings in Wednesday's start facing the Rockies.

Ross gave up three hits and a walk while striking out five on the afternoon. The young right-hander has struggled with control early in the spring, but it's nothing to worry about. The 27-year-old posted an impressive 2.81 ERA over 31 starts last season and hopes to enjoy that same success in 2015 behind James Shields and Andrew Cashner in the Padres' rotation.
Mar 18 - 7:18 PM

Tyson Ross pitched well in Friday's Cactus League victory over the Angels, allowing just one run on two hits over three frames.

Ross walked a pair and struck out one on the day. He's completely recovered from the forearm issue that shortened his 2014 season and looks poised to build upon his breakout effort. He has developed into one of the top overall hurlers in the National League.
Mar 13 - 8:55 PM

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.
