Ross was released by the White Sox on Saturday, James Fegan of The Athletic Chicago reports. Ross will look to catch on elsewhere after posting an alarming 11.45 ERA in 11 innings out of the bullpen at Triple-A Charlotte. His last big-league action came in 2017 with Boston.
Ross was placed on the minor-league disabled list with an undisclosed injury Friday. Ross battled both back and elbow injuries in 2017, limiting him to just eight appearances. He joined the White Sox on a minor-league deal in the offseason and was lit up through his first five appearances for Triple-A Charlotte. Through 2.2 innings, he has a 30.38 ERA and a 44 percent walk rate.
Ross signed a minor-league deal with the White Sox on Sunday that includes an invitation to spring training. Ross closed the 2017 season with the Red Sox, but was limited to just eight games due to elbow and back injuries. Now presumably healthy, the 28-year-old will look to get back on track as a left-handed relief option in the Chicago bullpen.
Ross (back) was reinstated from the 60-day DL on Thursday, and chose to hit the open market instead of accepting an outright assignment from the team, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Ross was placed on the disabled list in late May with inflammation in his throwing elbow, and then underwent back surgery in late August that effectively ended his 2017 season. He should be fully recovered by the time spring training rolls around, and will now look to latch on with a different organization within the next few months.
Ross (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Monday, Jen McCaffrey of MassLive.com reports. Moving Ross to the 60-day DL creates room on the 40-man roster to accommodate the promotion of Rafael Devers from Triple-A Pawtucket. Ross is without a clear timetable for returning from the elbow injury.
