Nationals' Joe Ross: Works into fifth inning Saturday

Ross allowed four runs (two earned) on six hits and a walk while striking out three in 4.2 innings during Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros.

His defense did him no favors Saturday, but Ross still has a strong 2.70 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 11:3 K:BB through 13.1 spring innings. The 23-year-old seems nearly ready for Opening Day, and if he's able to stay healthy in 2017 he should be able to approach 30 starts and 200 innings for the first time in the majors.
