Ross made 12 starts for the Rangers in 2014, but the results weren't great and he's not being considered for the one of the rotation spots heading into 2015. The 25-year-old lefty has a 3.27 career ERA as a reliever and a 5.70 career ERA as a starter. Dec 4 - 2:39 PM

Date:

Robbie Ross was chased out of Thursday's start in the second inning, allowing six runs in 1 2/3 innings, in a loss to the Mariners.

Ross tossed five no-hit innings in his previous start against the Astros, but the Mariners had little issue squaring him up on Thursday. The lefty yielded five hits and walked three without recording a strikeout. All six runs scored in the second inning. Ross has an ugly 6.25 ERA, 1.69 WHIP, and 46/27 K/BB ratio, but he'll look to improve on each in a home start against the Angels on Wednesday.
Sep 4 - 11:19 PM

Robbie Ross pitched five no-hit innings in the Rangers' loss to the Astros on Saturday night.

Ross made a relief appearance at Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday, so he was lifted early from Saturday's game despite the no-no. Phil Klein, the first reliever in for Texas, then yielded two earned runs on three hits.
Aug 30 - 9:42 PM

Rangers recalled LHP Robbie Ross from Triple-A Round Rock.

Ross has posted a 6.06 ERA in 65 1/3 innings this season for Texas. The left-hander is not fantasy-relevant.
Aug 30 - 4:14 PM

Rangers optioned LHP Robbie Ross to Triple-A Round Rock.

Ross was lit up for six runs over 4 1/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Rays. With an off day next Monday and Thursday, the Rangers can skip the No. 5 spot in the rotation hopefully until Yu Darvish (elbow) is ready.
Aug 15 - 4:23 PM

Robbie Ross, making his first start in the majors since May 17, was shelled for six runs over 4 1/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Rays.

Ross was recalled from Triple-A to start in place of the injured Yu Darvish. It didn't go very well. Ross surrendered two two-run home runs to Logan Forsythe and Evan Longoria. He allowed eight hits in total while walking two and striking out three. He sports an unsightly 6.06 ERA, 1.70 WHIP, and a 41/21 K/BB ratio. He'll try to turn things around in a road start against the Marlins on Wednesday.
Aug 14 - 11:23 PM

Rangers recalled LHP Robbie Ross from Triple-A Round Rock.

With Yu Darvish (elbow) on the disabled list, Ross will return from the minors to start Thursday against the Rays. The left-hander owns an ugly 5.61 ERA and 1.66 WHIP over 61 innings this season and can be avoided in most fantasy formats.
Aug 14 - 4:39 PM

Rangers optioned LHP Robbie Ross to Triple-A Round Rock.

It's been a rough month for Ross, as he was removed from the rotation in late May and is now off the roster entirely. The left-hander has an ugly 5.61 ERA and 1.66 WHIP over 61 innings this season. Aaron Poreda has taken his spot in the Rangers' bullpen.
Jun 17 - 6:49 PM

Robbie Ross has been removed from Texas' rotation.

Ross registered an ugly 4.78 ERA, 1.55 WHIP, and 34/16 K/BB ratio in nine starts (49 innings) for Texas. He is presumably being shifted to a long relief role. Scott Baker will take over the vacant rotation spot.
May 20 - 5:28 PM

Robbie Ross tossed 4 1/3 innings of one-run ball in a no-decision Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Ross walked four, elevating his pitch count early. He has a rough 4.78 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 49 innings this season, and would be in danger of losing his rotation spot if the Rangers' pitching staff were in better health. The left-hander still could get the boot at some point.
May 17 - 11:39 PM

Robbie Ross could be removed from the Rangers' rotation in favor of Joe Saunders (ankle).

The Rangers are skipping Ross' next start, and although they're not saying he's being removed from the rotation, the speculation is that he could ultimately be bumped in favor of Saunders. Saunders is making a rehab start with Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday, possibly putting him in line to rejoin the Rangers' rotation on May 20. Ross has a 7.76 ERA in his last five starts.
May 12 - 9:22 PM

Robbie Ross allowed five runs on six hits over 6 2/3 innings in a loss to the Red Sox on Sunday.

Ross allowed six hits on the day but four went for extra bases, including a solo home run by Dustin Pedroia. The left-hander walked two while striking out three. He started the season like a house on fire, owning a 1.00 ERA through three starts, but he's 0-4 in five starts since. Overall, Ross has a 5.04 ERA and 1.52 WHIP. His next start will come Saturday against the Blue Jays.
May 11 - 7:50 PM

Robbie Ross was shelled by the Athletics in Wednesday's start, allowing 10 runs (six earned) in 3 1/3 innings.

Ross can certainly blame his defense for part of the Athletics' seven-run third and three-run fourth, but the Athletics were swinging at beach balls as seven of them logged at least two hits on the night. Ross allowed 11 hits and walked one while only striking out two. Ross will get the Rockies in Coors Field next, so fantasy owners may want to bench him for that one.
Apr 30 - 11:31 PM

Robbie Ross yielded two runs in six innings and struck out five Friday against the Mariners.

Ross did his part and left with a one-run lead, but the bullpen couldn't hold it. This makes four of his five starts in which Ross has allowed two earned runs or less. His 2.45 ERA overstates how well he's pitched -- he's given up five unearned runs -- but he still looks like a decent mixed-league option from here.
Apr 26 - 1:49 AM

Robbie Ross allowed seven runs -- four earned -- over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the White Sox on Sunday.

It was an odd line for Ross, who allowed seven hits, didn't walk a batter and struck out eight in the outing. Unfortunately for the southpaw, two of those hits left the playing field, and another run scored after reaching on a wild pitch following a strikeout. Ross has generally been very good since making the conversion to starter, so Sunday's performance isn't too alarming. He'll try to keep the ball in the yard Saturday when the Rangers visit the Mariners.
