Tyson Ross could need surgery to repair his injured right shoulder.
Ross was limited to just one start in 2016 -- back on April 4 -- due to ongoing shoulder discomfort. He's undergone multiple tests and received several different medical opinions, but nothing has worked. This has become a nightmare for the 29-year-old right-hander, who is eligible for salary arbitration for the final time leading into 2017. He had a 3.07 ERA and 526 strikeouts in 516 2/3 innings between 2013-2015. Sep 27 - 7:53 PM

Padres manager Andy Green said it's unlikely Tyson Ross (shoulder) will return before the end of the regular season.

"It’s probably, most likely a real long shot to see him pitch for us at some point in time this season," he admitted. "It’s been a tough, trying season for him." Ross has missed most of the season with shoulder inflammation and still has a lot of hurdles to clear before making his return. He's still doing some light throwing but the Padres will probably shut him down at some point.

Tyson Ross (shoulder) isn't ready to throw a bullpen session.

And there's no indication of when that will happen. The Padres haven't ruled Ross out for the remainder of the season, but he's obviously running out of time. "Before September rolled around, we all felt very strongly that Tyson was going to pitch again for us this year," said Padres manager Andy Green. "Then, it looked like a probability. Now, it looks like just a possibility at this point in time. He has not been able to rebound the way we'd like to see him rebound." Ross hasn't pitched since Opening Day due to a shoulder injury.
Sep 12 - 11:30 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder) threw from 90 feet on Saturday.

Ross felt fine after Friday's bullpen session and will probably throw another one in the next few days. He's finally making good progress in his recovery from shoulder inflammation, though the clock is ticking. It's still a coin flip whether he makes it back before the end of 2016.
Sep 10 - 7:27 PM

The Padres are still hoping that Tyson Ross (shoulder) will return late this season.

Ross felt renewed discomfort in his right shoulder during his last rehab start, but the Padres aren't shutting him down yet. The hope is that he'll make it back for a relief appearance late in the season, although it's not terribly likely at this point. Ross has been limited to just one appearance this season due to a shoulder issue and obviously can be dropped in fantasy leagues.
Sep 4 - 12:29 PM

Tyson Ross felt discomfort in his injured shoulder following his first rehab start last week.

Ross has been on the shelf for almost the entirety of the 2016 season due to right shoulder inflammation. While he had finally progressed to starting into a rehab assignment, that progress has been at least momentarily halted after he reported minor discomfort. Ross threw off flat ground on Wednesday. Despite this setback, the Padres are still hopeful he will be able to return at some point during September.
Aug 31 - 5:43 PM

Padres transferred RHP Tyson Ross from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

It's a procedural move to open a 40-man roster spot for catcher Hector Sanchez, who was brought up from Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday. Ross struggled in his first rehab start last Thursday with High-A Lake Elsinore and might not make it back to the Padres until mid-to-late September. He's been out since early April with a shoulder injury.
Aug 31 - 2:45 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder, ankle) gave up four runs while lasting just two-thirds of an inning in his first rehab start with High-A Lake Elsinore on Thursday.

Ross was supposed to throw 45 pitches in his first start since April, but he was pulled after throwing 28 in a rough first inning. "Pitching is not like riding a bicycle," Ross said. "You either execute or you don’t. It’s black or white. It’s binary code. I had a lot of non-executed pitches today." Ross is expected to make one more rehab start before rejoining the Padres' rotation. He'll be limited to 3-5 innings initially with the Pads as he eases back into things, but the goal is to get him feeling confident in his health heading into the offseason.
Aug 26 - 10:56 AM

Tyson Ross (shoulder, ankle) is set to begin a rehab assignment Thursday with High-A Lake Elsinore.

Ross won't be allowed to go beyond 45 pitches in that outing. He landed on the disabled list the second week of April with a shoulder injury and then sprained his ankle while exercising in his hotel room on July 6. If everything goes smoothly from here, the right-hander could rejoin the Padres' rotation around mid-September.
Aug 23 - 7:05 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder, ankle) threw a live batting practice on Saturday.

Teammate Adam Rosales said Ross "looked ready" and called him "the toughest pitcher [he's] faced all year." Ross used his full repertoire during the 40-pitch session. His fastball topped out at 94 mph. It's unclear if Ross will throw another live session or advance immediately to a rehab assignment. Regardless, it looks like he'll be back in the Padres' rotation at some point next month. Shoulder inflammation and a sprained ankle have sidelined Ross since April.
Aug 20 - 10:03 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder, ankle) threw 30 pitches of live batting practice on Tuesday.

A nice step in the right direction for Ross, who has been out since April 9 because of a shoulder issue. He then tweaked his ankle while exercising in his hotel room on July 6, though that injury has already healed. It's all about building up arm strength now. Ross could make some starts for San Diego in September.
Aug 16 - 4:17 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder, ankle) completed a 46-pitch bullpen session on Saturday.

He'll pitch a live batting practice Tuesday in St. Petersburg. It's taken Ross a long time to get over his shoulder inflammation but it looks like the right-hander is finally nearing a return. If all goes well, he could be back in the big leagues by September.
Aug 13 - 6:40 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder, ankle) threw about five pitches off the mound Tuesday.

Ross just wanted to test his injured ankle in anticipation of a full bullpen session that is coming later this week. The hope is he can make 3-4 starts for the Padres by the end of the 2016 regular season, but there are still many hurdles to clear. Ross has been out since April 9 with a shoulder issue. He tweaked his ankle while exercising in his hotel room on July 6.
Aug 3 - 2:13 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder, ankle) played long toss from 180 feet on Tuesday.

Ross told reporters afterward that it's the best his foot has felt, and that his shoulder "feels fine." Ross was placed on the disabled list April 9 with a shoulder injury and then tweaked his ankle while exercising in his hotel room on July 6. AJ Cassavell of says the right-hander could resume throwing off a mound within the next week. Ross will aim to return in mid-to-late August.
Jul 19 - 6:29 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder) hopes to throw a bullpen session by the end of this week.

Ross had to be scratched from a scheduled mound workout Wednesday after tweaking his ankle while doing exercises in his hotel room. X-rays came up negative, so this shouldn't be a major setback. The right-hander has been on the disabled list since April 9 with a shoulder injury and was just beginning to ramp up his rehab.
