      Nationals' Joe Ross: Set top open season in rotation

      Ross is one of the top internal candidates to fill the two openings in the Nats' rotation in 2016, Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports. Ross and Tanner Roark would replace Jordan Zimmermann and Doug Fister in the rotation as things stand, although GM Mike Rizzo could still bring in another starter through trade or free agency, and a big spring from a prospect like Lucas Giolito could create a job battle. Ross had a successful major league debut last year, posting a 2.80 ERA and 47:4 K:BB ratio through his first seven big league starts (45 innings) before fading late.

      Nationals SP Joe Ross walks six in no-decision in St. Louis

      When Nationals rookie starter Joe Ross arrived on the mound Tuesday night in St. Louis, he was fresh off dominant efforts in beating Milwaukee and San Diego. What became obvious is what he already knew - the Cardinals are not the Brewers or Padres. Ross did not last three innings in a no-decision. He allowed three runs on only one hit, but six walks doomed him to the early exit. Two of his four free passes in a disastrous third inning in which Ross nearly blew a 4-0 lead came around to score. He even walked in a run.
