Ross escaped with a no-decision after allowing five runs (three earned) on five hits with six walks and two strikeouts over 4.1 innings Thursday against the White Sox. Believe it or not, this outing actually slightly lowered Ross' season ERA from 7.11 to 7.02. Control continues to be a major issue for the right-hander, who sports a horrid 31:31 K:BB in 42.1 innings. Once considered among the league's best young starters with the Padres, the 30-year-old Ross has seen injuries take a significant toll on his effectiveness over the past two years. Don't expect much in his next start Tuesday against the Angels in Los Angeles.
Ross (3-2) went 5.2 innings, giving up three runs, walking five and striking out two in a winning effort Saturday against the Astros. Ross, who had been out since July 24 with a blister on his finger, was pulled one out short of a quality start but still managed to secure the win as the Rangers backed him up with plenty of run support. Fantasy owners shouldn't expect much out of Ross at this point though. Even with this performance, his ERA sits at 7.11 as he tries to work his way back to his 2014 form, when he had an ERA of 2.81 with the Padres.
Ross (finger) was activated from the disabled list and will start Saturday against the Astros. The right-hander will return to oppose Mike Fiers after spending two and a half weeks on the DL with a blister issue. Ross threw 96 pitches during a rehab start last weekend with Double-A Frisco, so it seems unlikely that he will face any real restrictions in his return, but Ross has struggled mightily in seven starts this year and will need to show something before he's back in the conversation as an option in standard mixed leagues.
Ross (finger) will start against the Astros on Saturday, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports. Ross is set to return for the first time since July 23 after spending the last couple weeks on the disabled list due to a blister on his right index finger. He worked a rehab outing with Double-A Frisco on Saturday, tossing a gem -- one earned run off four hits while striking out eight over seven innings -- and shaking off a little rust before rejoining the Texas rotation. Ross will make his first appearance against the Astros this season, and is going to try and last past the sixth inning for the first time this season when he toes the rubber this weekend.
Ross (finger) isn't in line to come off the 10-day disabled list to start for the Rangers until at least Aug. 14 against the Tigers, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports. After tossing seven innings and conceding just one run while striking out eight batters Saturday in his second rehab start with Double-A Frisco, Ross certainly seemed to show that the blister on his right index finger that landed him on the DL on July 24 is no longer an issue. However, with the Rangers playing only five games this week, manager Jeff Banister is planning to utilize a four-man rotation, which will temporarily keep Ross out of the mix. Ross is expected to reclaim a spot among the starting staff next week -- most likely replacing Nick Martinez, who's served up a combined 12 runs in 9.1 innings over his last two starts.
