Rangers' Tyson Ross: Tosses 65 pitches in extended-spring game

Ross (shoulder) covered four innings and tossed 65 pitches during an extended spring training game Wednesday, the Associated Press reports. He struck out five batters and conceded two runs on six hits and no walks.

The Rangers are gradually increasing Ross's workload as the right-hander works his way back from surgery to address thoracic outlet syndrome. Ross is set to meet the Rangers in Detroit over the weekend for further evaluation, at which point the team should make a decision on his next step. If the Rangers are comfortable with how Ross's shoulder responded to the extended-spring outing, he could be cleared to begin a rehab assignment in the minors.
