Ross was released from his minor-league contract by the Rangers on Tuesday, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports. Ross opted out of last season and struggled to a 6.11 ERA in seven starts for the Tigers in 2019. At age 34, he may have a tough time finding a suitor on the open market.
Ross was invited to big-league camp Tuesday. Ross joined the Rangers on a minor-league deal in February but had spent the start of camp working out with the team's minor-league rehab group as he built himself back up to speed after opting out of last season. He could factor into the Rangers' rotation picture at some point this season but is unlikely to be an exciting fantasy option, as he's now 33 and has posted just one season with an ERA under 6.00 in the last five years.
Ross signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Friday which does not include an invitation to big-league camp. Ross spent 2017 as a Ranger but didn't have much success, posting a 7.71 ERA in 49 innings of work. After recording a 3.57 ERA in his first six years in the league, he now owns a 5.34 ERA over his last four. He opted out of the 2020 season, so he may have some work to do to get back into game shape.
Ross is expected to sit out the 2020 season, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. The right-hander -- who is still a free agent -- will join his brother, Joe Ross, in sitting out in 2020 due to concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic. The 33-year-old Ross made seven starts for the Tigers in 2019 before injuries derailed his season. He finished with a 6.11 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 25:18 K:BB in 35.1 innings.
Ross was released by the Giants on Friday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Ross has battled several significant injuries since 2016, but the Giants signed him as a non-roster invitee during the offseason. The right-hander allowed three earned runs over 3.2 innings in Cactus League play before spring training was suspended, but he'll be left searching for a new club ahead of the 2020 season.
