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.

Tyson Ross has been moved to the bullpen.

Nick Martinez will replace him in the starting rotation. Ross has been abysmal this year, struggling to a 7.04 ERA over 10 starts this season. Ross could return to the rotation if someone gets hurts, but for now he'll work in a long relief role.

Tyson Ross walked six and allowed five runs -- three earned -- in his 4 1/3 innings of work Thursday against the White Sox.

Ross actually issued more walks (6) than he allowed hits (5) in the contest, failing to stick around long enough to qualify for what would have been his fourth win. Instead, he remains 3-2 with an unsightly 7.02 ERA and 1.65 WHIP in nine starts this year. Nobody expected brilliance from the 30-year-old in his return from serious shoulder issues, but there were certainly higher hopes than this for Ross this season. He'll get back at it Tuesday against the Angels.

Tyson Ross held the Astros to three runs over 5 2/3 innings in a win Saturday.

Ross, making his first start since July 23 due to a blister on his throwing hand, had trouble finding the zone, issuing five walks to go with four hits allowed. He struck out just two but did enough to earn the win, improving him to 3-2 in eight starts overall. That record is deceiving, given that it comes with a 7.11 ERA and 1.55 WHIP, and Ross will have a chance to improve on all those numbers Thursday when the Rangers face the White Sox.

Rangers activated RHP Tyson Ross from the 10-day disabled list.

Ross had spent the previous two weeks tending to a blister on his throwing hand. He'll draw the start Saturday against Houston. The right-hander has struggled to an ugly 7.52 ERA over seven starts this season.

Tyson Ross (finger) says he feels ready to return to the Rangers' rotation.

But it probably won't happen until early next week, according to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News. Ross struck out eight batters over seven innings of one-run ball Saturday in his second rehab start with Double-A Frisco. The 30-year-old right-hander has been on the disabled list since July 24 with a blister on his right index finger.

Tyson Ross (finger) is scheduled to make a rehab start Saturday with Double-A Frisco.

Ross was placed on the disabled list April 24 with a blister on his right index finger. He might make several starts in the minor leagues before returning, as the 30-year-old right-hander had a brutal 7.52 ERA through his first seven starts with Texas.

Rangers placed RHP Tyson Ross on the 10-day disabled list with a blister on his right index finger.

Ross may very well have a blister, but the Rangers could be making up a phantom injury here in order to get the righty and his 7.52 ERA out of the rotation. It's unclear who will take his rotation spot, but Austin Bibens-Dirkx is a candidate and A.J. Griffin (intercostal) is nearing a return.

Tyson Ross gave up five runs -- four earned -- over 3 2/3 innings Sunday in a no-decision versus the Rays.

Texas wound up winning the game with a late rally, no thanks to the poor effort from Ross. He walked four batters and surrendered four hits before getting removed in the bottom of the fourth inning at 83 pitches. The 30-year-old right-hander has a hideous 7.52 ERA in seven starts since making his Rangers debut on June 16.

Tyson Ross allowed nine runs -- eight earned -- over 3 1/3 innings in a loss to the Orioles on Tuesday.

Astute observers knew Ross didn't have his A-game early, tipped off by the pair of two-run homers allowed during a six-run first inning. Ross finished having allowed seven hits and three walks, striking out four, in total. The disastrous start came on the heels of a decent one to end the first half, and he's been up and down in six starts overall. Some of that is the 30-year-old still working his way back from thoracic outlet syndrome, and that will likely continue for at least the rest of 2017. He'll take a 7.22 ERA into Sunday's contest at the Rays.
Wed, Jul 19, 2017 12:53:00 AM

Tyson Ross allowed one earned run, four hits and two walks with three strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings in a victory against the Angels on Saturday.

Ross threw just 48 of his 94 pitches for strikes, but he managed to wriggle out of trouble when he needed to make a pitch. Still, it was his first victory since his season debut June 16, so he'll need more consistency and to go deeper into ball games before most fantasy owners can rely upon him again.

Tyson Ross surrendered four runs on four hits over five innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

Ross allowed a solo home run to Melky Cabrera in the first inning, with the other three runs on his line scoring in the third. He struck out three while walking five in the uneven outing. The veteran right-hander will bring an unwieldy 6.41 ERA and 1.32 WHIP (four starts) into a home date with the Angels in his final outing before the Rangers hit the All-Star break.
Sun, Jul 2, 2017 06:03:00 PM

Tyson Ross held the Indians to one run and two hits in six innings in a no-decision Tuesday.

Ross's middle start was ugly, but he's been effective in two of his other three outings for the Rangers. Unfortunately, the Jays hit him so hard that his ERA stands at 6.14. We don't recommend him outside of AL-only leagues right now.
