Ross is enjoying another terrific campaign, registering a 3.24 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 185/76 K/BB ratio over 178 innings.

Tyson Ross hurled six innings of one-run ball but took a loss Saturday against the Dodgers.

San Diego's offense provided zero runs of support for Ross, who struck out three and yielded only five hits. Carl Crawford tagged him for an RBI ground rule double in the top of the fourth, and the Dodgers plated another run on the Padres bullpen in the eighth. Ross is off to a terrific start in September and will try to keep it all working next week against the Rockies.

He still has solid numbers though, owning a 3.27 ERA with a 1.35 WHIP and a 176/74 K/BB ratio over 165 innings. Ross will face the Dodgers at home next.

Overall, not a bad outing by any means for the right-hander, as he scattered six hits and two walks while striking out nine. Ross owns a 3.42 ERA, a 1.38 WHIP, and a 169/72 K/BB ratio over 158 innings. He'll face the Phillies in a road start next.

Ross will carry a 3.39 ERA into his next start on the road against the Rockies.

Aug 3 - 11:40 PM

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Cubs "would love to pull off a blockbuster" and land Tyson Ross and Craig Kimbrel from the Padres.

The Cubs, Padres and Red Sox reportedly discussed a possible three-team blockbuster deal, but Nightengale says the Cubs and Padres are dealing exclusively with each other on this one. It's unclear what would be headed to San Diego in the deal, but Chicago has numerous assets on the block like Starlin Castro and Javier Baez.
Jul 31 - 2:17 PM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Red Sox are in the market for cost-controlled young pitching and "like Tyson Ross a lot."

They've also talked to the Indians about Carlos Carrasco. We haven't heard much from the Red Sox this week since they're out of the playoff hunt, with Crasnick saying they're "operating very quietly" in their pursuit of young rotation help. Ross, who is under team control through 2017, would certainly fit the bill.
Jul 31 - 9:17 AM

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Cubs are pushing hard to acquire Tyson Ross from the Padres.

Rival executives are convinced that the right-hander will be moved before Friday's trade deadline, with the Cubs as the club showing the most interest at the moment. The 28-year-old right-hander is relatively inexpensive and under team control through 2017, meaning the Padres should be able to net a nice return package.
Jul 30 - 10:14 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Tyson Ross is drawing "intense interest" from many.

Heyman suspects that the Astros may be at the forefront, though he also ties in the Blue Jays, Cubs, Dodgers, and "many, many others." Ross, 28, owns a 3.03 ERA and 332 strikeouts in 323 1/3 innings since the beginning of the 2014 season and he is under contract through 2017. Everybody loves a good, cost-controlled starting pitcher.
