Tyson Ross was pummeled for seven runs in three innings by the Blue Jays on Wednesday.
He gave up seven hits and four of them went for extra bases, including a two-run bomb by the light-hitting Darwin Barney. Ross gave up six runs in the first frame alone. He struck out two and walked one. He was making his second start of the season after an extended recovery from shoulder injuries. He made it through only one game last year and missed the first two-and-a-half months of this year. He had a very nice three-year run in San Diego from 2013-2015 and his fantasy owners hope he can get back somewhere close to that form again. Jun 22 - 1:05 AM

Date:

Making his season debut, Tyson Ross pitched 5 2/3 innings of two-run ball Friday against the Mariners.

He allowed two hits, walked three and struck out five. We weren't expecting much from Ross based on his rehab performances, so it was a nice surprise to see him come out like this in his first major league start since April 4, 2016. He still doesn't seem like a very good bet in mixed leagues, but it'd be great if he proved us wrong.

Rangers activated RHP Tyson Ross from the 60-day disabled list.

Ross will make his Rangers debut on Friday night against the Mariners, despite posting a rough 7.71 ERA and 11/11 K/BB ratio over 18 2/3 innings on his four-start minor league rehab assignment. It will be his first start at the major league level since Opening Day in 2016.
Jun 16 - 4:35 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder) is tentatively scheduled to make his Rangers debut on Friday versus the Mariners.

Manager Jeff Banister hedged his bets and wouldn't fully commit to Ross on Friday, but all signs point to it happening. Ross posted a 7.71 ERA and 11/11 K/BB ratio over 18 2/3 frames in his four rehab starts and allowed eight runs in his last outing, so he's not a recommended fantasy option for the time being.

Tyson Ross (shoulder) will make his Rangers debut this week.

Which day he'll start hasn't been determined, but Ross is done with his rehab assignment. Things weren't pretty in the minors for the righty, as he posted a 7.71 ERA and 11/11 K/BB ratio over 18 2/3 frames in his four rehab starts. He gave up eight runs in his last outing at Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday, surrendering back-to-back-to-back homers in the process. It's possible Ross gets sharper as he's further removed from thoracic outlet surgery, but he needs to be avoided in fantasy leagues for now.

Tyson Ross (shoulder) allowed eight runs in five innings Friday in his latest rehab outing at Triple-A Round Rock.

Ross surrendered 10 hits, including three straight home runs in the first inning. He also issued a walk and plunked two batters. This was supposed to be Ross' final rehab start, but Rangers manager Jeff Banister told reporters Saturday that the plan could be reevaluated. "The No. 1 factor in the decision-making process is the health," Banister said. "He’s healthy. We had kind of a mutual agreement and thought process on him going out and getting the extra start. We’ll sit down with him and see where he’s at."
Jun 10 - 1:03 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder) will make another rehab start Friday with Triple-A Round Rock.

Ross has allowed eight earned runs on 13 hits and 10 walks over his first 13 2/3 rehab innings covering three starts. He needs to be sharper on Friday to force himself into the Rangers' rotation. The right-hander has not appeared in a major league game since Opening Day in 2016 with the Padres due to thoracic outlet syndrome.
Jun 7 - 12:08 AM

Tyson Ross (shoulder) will make at least one more rehab start.

It's probably a good move, as Ross hasn't been terribly sharp on his rehab assignment, allowing eight runs with a 4/9 K/BB ratio over 8 2/3 frames in his last two outings. His velocity has also been down compared to his pre-throracic outlet syndrome surgery numbers. Nick Martinez should get another start with Ross not expected to arrive for the Rangers until at least next week.
Jun 5 - 5:34 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder) allowed two runs while walking four over 5 1/3 innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday.

Ross pitched well in his first rehab start but has now given up eight runs with a 4/9 K/BB ratio over 8 2/3 frames in his last two outings. Still, he's expected to join the Rangers' rotation later this week assuming his body bounces back well. Fantasy owners should avoid starting Ross for now.
Jun 4 - 2:01 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder) is slated to make one more rehab start on Saturday with Triple-A Round Rock.

Ross allowed six earned runs over just 3 1/3 innings on Monday against the Triple-A affiliate of the Royals and the Rangers don't feel he's quite ready for big-league competition. The right-hander threw five scoreless innings in his rehab debut May 23 against the Triple-A affiliate of the Mets. If things go smoothly Saturday, he should join the Texas rotation next week. Ross hasn't appeared in a major league game since Opening Day in 2016.
May 30 - 5:41 PM

Rangers transferred RHP Tyson Ross to the 60-day disabled list.

This was done merely as a procedural move to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. Ross is slated to make a minor league rehab start on Monday and could be activated as soon as next weekend against the Reds.
May 27 - 3:02 PM

Rangers manager Jeff Bannister said Saturday that Tyson Ross (shoulder) will make another minor league rehab start with Triple-A Round Rock on Monday.

If all goes well in that outing, he could return to the Rangers' rotation next weekend against the Astros. The veteran right-hander has worked his way back from thoracic outlet surgery, but it may be best to watch a couple of starts before inserting him back into fantasy lineups.
May 27 - 11:49 AM

Tyson Ross (shoulder) could make his Rangers debut next weekend against the Astros.

Ross looked excellent in his first rehab start Tuesday with Triple-A Round Rock, yielding only two hits over five scoreless innings. He'll start for Round Rock again on Monday, with the goal of making it six innings, and then we should see the right-hander back in the bigs for the first time since Opening Day in 2016. Ross is a worthwhile stash in deeper mixed fantasy leagues coming off October 2016 surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome. He registered a 3.07 ERA and 526 strikeouts in 516 2/3 innings with the Padres between 2013-2015.
May 24 - 3:12 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder) threw five scoreless innings Tuesday in a rehab start with Triple-A Round Rock.

Ross needed just 73 pitches to make it through those five shutout innings, yielding only two hits. The right-hander could be cleared to join the Rangers' starting rotation after just two more minor league appearances, assuming they go as smoothly as his start on Tuesday. He last pitched in a major league game on Opening Day in 2016.
May 23 - 9:58 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder) made it through a successful bullpen session on Saturday.

He's on track to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday. Ross got a late start this year after undergoing thoracic outlet surgery last October. He's slated to join the Rangers' rotation sometime next month.
