Ross (elbow) successfully underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports. Ross now begins the long road towards recovery, and likely won't be back in the major leagues until the middle of the 2018 season. It's an unfortunate end to a tough season for the 24-year-old, as he finishes 2017 with a 5.01 ERA and 1.47 WHIP over 13 starts, a sharp decline from his numbers a year earlier. Edwin Jackson will take over his place in the rotation moving forward.
Ross (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list on Sunday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports. This move was to be expected following the news that Ross would require Tommy John surgery, effectively ending his 2017 campaign. With the Nationals acquiring relievers Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madson, the club officially placed Ross on the 60-day DL, clearing up room for its incoming pitchers.
Ross (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports. This is a tough development for Ross, who was initially diagnosed with triceps tenderness before further testing revealed that he'd need Tommy John surgery to repair his UCL. The general timeline for a return from Tommy John is 12-14 months, which could put Ross' status for the 2018 season in question. Once Ross undergoes the procedure and begins his rehab process, the Nationals figure to have a firmer timetable for his return. In any case, it appears Ross' 2017 campaign will end with a 5.01 ERA, a 1.47 WHIP, and an 8.10 K/9 rate over 73.2 innings.
Ross was placed on the 10-day DL on Friday with a right elbow sprain, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports. The injury was initially labeled as "triceps tenderness," but the Nats offered up this new diagnosis when they formally placed Ross on the DL. This is a troubling development -- the ligament is typically involved when a sprain is mentioned -- and it's uncertain when Ross will pitch again in 2017, if at all. Jacob Turner is slated to serve as Washington's fifth starter for the time being.
Ross (triceps) will land on the disabled list Friday, The Washington Post's Chelsea Janes reports. Ross exited during his start Sunday in the fourth inning with triceps tenderness and wasn't listed as the Nationals' fifth starter coming out of the All-Star break. Instead, the team will recall Jacob Turner from Triple-A Syracuse to make the start against the Angels on Tuesday while Ross recovers from his injury. Although Ross has been pitching well as of late, the team will be cautious with the right-hander and give him ample time off to heal, especially if this winds up being a significant issue. Ross underwent an MRI after Sunday's start, and there should be a more definitive timetable moving forward once the team releases the results.
