Tyson Ross surrendered six hits and four runs over four innings Wednesday in the Padres’ loss to the Rockies.
Ross recorded seven strikeouts and three walks over his 94 pitches. After pitching a scoreless first, Ross let up three hits in the second inning with one run coming across on Tony Wolters’ RBI single to left field. He fared even worse in the third, allowing three walks and a two-run triple to David Dahl. Ross flirted with a no-hitter in his last start and still owns a respectable 3.64 ERA for the year despite his struggles Wednesday at Coors Field. The right-hander will face another division rival in his next outing Tuesday at San Francisco. Apr 25 - 7:27 PM

Tyson Ross allowed one earned run, one hit and three walks with 10 strikeouts over 7 2/3 innings in a no-decision Friday in Arizona.

Ross was on fire, taking a no-hitter into the eighth inning. He ran out of gas in the eighth in the 127-pitch outing and was unable to produce the first no-hitter in franchise history. In fact, San Diego is the only active organization without a no-no since their inception. He'll look to carry over the momentum into Tuesday's start in San Francisco.
Apr 21 - 1:15 AM

Tyson Ross allowed just an unearned run over six-plus innings Friday in the Padres' 5-1 win over the Giants.

Ross was having an easy time until the seventh started with an infield single and a botched double-play ball. He was pulled then, and fortunately, Craig Stammen was able to strand one of the two runners. Ross has a 3.50 ERA and a 14/4 K/BB ratio through three starts. He's not yet a shallow mixed-league play, but he's definitely an option in deeper formats.
Apr 14 - 1:06 AM

Tyson Ross allowed four runs on six hits over six innings in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

Ross matched Astros starter Charlie Morton pitch for pitch through four innings, striking out five, but a three-run homer by Max Stassi in the fifth ended up being the difference in the game. Josh Reddick tacked on a solo homer in the sixth. Ross finished with seven strikeouts without issuing a walk, on the plus side. He'll take a 5.25 ERA into a matchup with the division-rival Giants on Friday.
Apr 8 - 6:18 PM

Tyson Ross allowed three earned runs, five hits and three walks with two strikeouts over six innings in a win Tuesday against Colorado.

Ross threw 47 of his 81 pitches for strikes in the quality start, kicking off his 2018 campaign on a high note. The 30-year-old had a decent spring, and he looked pretty good against a high-octane Rockies offense. Despite the solid outing, he entered the season with an 8.12 ERA across 54 1/3 innings over the past two seasons. He needs to repeat these results in at least two or three more outings to regain the trust of fantasy owners. Next up is a trip to Houston to battle the defending champs on Sunday.
Apr 4 - 4:27 AM

Padres purchased the contract of RHP Tyson Ross from Triple-A El Paso.

Ross will start against the Rockies on Tuesday night at Petco Park. He put up promising numbers this spring, but the 30-year-old right-hander makes for a poor fantasy streaming option against the dangerous Colorado lineup. Ross holds an 8.12 ERA in 54 1/3 major league innings over the last two seasons.
Apr 3 - 6:06 PM

Tyson Ross is expected to start for the Padres on Tuesday night against the Rockies.

Ross had a decent spring, but the 30-year-old right-hander holds a brutal 8.12 ERA over his last 54 1/3 innings at the major league level and can't be trusted for fantasy purposes. He signed a minor league contract with San Diego in late December.
Apr 2 - 6:24 PM

Tyson Ross allowed one run across four innings Sunday in a start against the Dodgers.

Ross allowed just one hit and walked two while striking out three in the start. He's now fanned 11 over 15 Cactus League innings, posting a strong 1.07 WHIP and 3.00 ERA in five appearances. Ross is technically battling for a rotation spot with the Friars but given his performance and history of dominance, he's probably closer to pen than pencil at this point.
Mar 18 - 8:05 PM

Tyson Ross worked three scoreless innings in a Cactus League appearance Monday versus the Royals.

Ross piggy-backed with Bryan Mitchell in this one and easily out-pitched Mitchell, who gave up four earned runs in four innings. They both appear locked into spots in the San Diego rotation leading into the 2018 regular season. Ross has a 3.27 ERA and 8/4 K/BB ratio through 10 innings this spring.
Mar 12 - 5:13 PM

Tyson Ross had a so-so outing Wednesday in the Padres’ Cactus League tie with San Francisco, yielding four hits, two walks and two earned runs over three lackluster innings.

He recorded just one strikeout. Ross got off to a rough start, allowing San Francisco’s first three batters to reach in the first inning. The Giants got to him for two runs in the frame and it would have been worse if Hunter Pence hadn’t hit into an inning-ending double play. Ross settled down after that, retiring four batters in a row to end his outing. Injury-prone and coming off one of his worst seasons, Ross doesn’t carry much fantasy appeal.
Mar 7 - 6:31 PM

Tyson Ross went two scoreless frames Thursday versus the Rangers.

Ross limited his former club to a single and a walk and notched a pair of punchouts. The veteran right-hander should have a good shot to win a rotation spot with the Padres if he pitches decently this spring. Chris Young, who is also aiming for a spot in the rotation, followed Ross Thursday and allowed two runs over two frames.
Mar 1 - 6:15 PM

Tyson Ross struck out four while surrendering two runs on three hits over two innings in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the A's.

Ross recorded four of his six outs via the strikeout. He would cough up a solo home run to Franklin Barreto in the first inning and an RBI single to Sheldon Neuse in the second before calling it a day. The veteran right-hander reunitied with the Padres on a minor league contract at December's end and will receive a base salary of $1.75 million if he manages to make the major league roster, with up to $4.25 million in incentives additionally possible. After a shoulder injury cost him nearly the entirety of the 2016 season -- this unofficially marked the end of his first run with the Padres -- Ross signed a one-year contract with the Rangers. That did not work out, as he proceeded to post a 7.71 ERA while issuing a horrifying 36/37 K/BB ratio across 49 frames last season. He'll need to show signs of a turnaround this spring if he's to realistically be in play to make the Padres' Opening Day roster.
Feb 24 - 6:29 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Tyson Ross will get a base salary of $1.75 million if he makes the Padres' major league roster.

Heyman also reports that Ross can earn up to $4.25 million in incentives on his non-guaranteed minor league deal with San Diego. There are two opt-out dates if he doesn't make the initial 25-man roster; May 15 and June 15. He can earn $150,000 for every start made after his fifth, and $200,000 after his 20th start of the year.
Jan 3 - 4:12 PM

Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports the Padres have signed RHP Tyson Ross to a minor league contract.

Ross was released by the Rangers in September after registering a bloated 7.71 ERA in 10 starts and two relief appearances. He walked more batters than he struck out on the season, fanning 36 and issuing 37 free passes in 49 innings. Ross will head back to San Diego where he was one of the best pitchers in the National League for an extended period. From 2013-2015 with the Padres he had a combined 3.07 ERA with 526 strikeouts and 200 walks in 516 2/3 innings. He was the opening day starter for the Padres in 2016 but suffered a shoulder injury and missed the rest of the season. He signed a one-year contract with the Rangers last offseason and that didn't work out well, so he will try to regroup in a familiar place when Padres camp begins in February.

Rangers released RHP Tyson Ross.

Ross was blasted for four earned runs over 2 2/3 innings of relief in his last outing for Texas. The 30-year-old right-hander finishes his disappointing tenure with the Rangers having posted a 7.71 ERA and 1.84 WHIP in 10 starts and two relief appearances. They signed him to a one-year, $6 million contract in January.
