Player Outlook
The right-hander made a handful of minor-league appearances last season while working back from the Tommy John surgery he underwent in May of 2022, and the Brewers inked him to a major-league deal for 2024. Joe Ross hasn't pitched in the majors since 2021, when he had a 4.17 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 109:34 K:BB across 108 innings for Washington. He has a decent chance of cracking Milwaukee's rotation to begin the season and could have some fantasy value if he's able to regain that 2021 form, though he has an inconsistent track record overall and figures to have some workload limitations given his lack of innings over the previous two seasons.

  • Brewers' Joe Ross: Lands on 15-day injured list

    The Brewers placed Ross on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with a low-back strain. Ross had to be removed from Monday's start versus the Marlins with the injury, although manager Pat Murphy said it's something that's bothered the pitcher for a while, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. The hope is that the right-hander's absence will not be a lengthy one. Tobias Myers has taken Ross' spot on the roster and could also take his place in the rotation.

  • Brewers' Joe Ross: Likely headed for IL

    Ross (back) is expected to require a stint on the 15-day injured list, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Ross was forced out of his start Monday against the Marlins after his back tightened up, and he was later diagnosed with a low back strain. The club will likely wait to see how he responds Tuesday before making an official roster move. Milwaukee is already thin when it comes to starting pitching, so the team will once again be forced to turn to their farm system for help. Aaron Ashby and Tobias Myers are candidates to enter the rotation if it's confirmed that Ross requires a trip to the IL.

  • Brewers' Joe Ross: Exits start early

    Ross was removed from Monday's start against the Marlins after one scoreless inning due to back tightness, Sophia Minnaert of Bally Sports Wisconsin reports. Ross was reportedly dealing with some back tightness before Monday's start, but he felt good enough to give it a go after warming up. However, his back tightened back up during a 15-pitch first inning, and he's been officially diagnosed with a low back strain. Jared Koenig was called upon out of the bullpen following the right-hander's departure and will likely be asked to eat up a few frames.

  • Brewers' Joe Ross: Gets on track with win

    Ross (2-4) picked up the win Tuesday against Pittsburgh, allowing two runs on two hits and one walk across five innings. He struck out six. Ross got a tally in the win column for the first time since April 9, putting together a spotless day outside of a two-run homer by Nick Gonzales in the fourth. Although the 31-year-old hasn't been outstanding in 2024, he's been a reliable arm for a Brewers rotation that has been plagued by injuries. He's lasted at least five innings in six of his eight starts and has surrendered three or fewer runs six times as well. Ross is set up to make his next start during a three-game road series against the Marlins early next week.

  • Brewers' Joe Ross: Takes another loss

    Ross (1-4) took the loss Wednesday, allowing three runs on three hits and two walks across five innings against the Royals. He struck out two. Each of the three hits Ross allowed went for extra bases, including back-to-back two-baggers by Maikel Garcia and Bobby Witt in the first inning -- both of whom scored via the sacrifice fly. Ross has been handed a loss in four of his last five outings, owning a 5.88 ERA and a 19:8 K:BB across 26.0 innings during that stretch. He'll look to get back on track in a tentatively scheduled start Tuesday against Pittsburgh.

  • Brewers' Joe Ross: Ends skid versus Cubs

    Ross did not factor into the decision Friday against the Cubs, allowing one run on six hits over six innings. He struck out four. Ross was solid, holding Chicago off the board until a Christopher Morel solo home run with two outs in the sixth inning. While Ross ultimately came away with a no-decision, he was able to stem a three-start losing streak -- he'd allowed 16 runs (13 earned) over 15 innings in that span. Overall, Ross is 1-3 with a 4.65 ERA, 1,55 WHIP and 27:12 K:BB through six starts (31 innings) this season. He's currently scheduled for a road matchup with Kansas City in his next outing.

  • Brewers' Joe Ross: Rocked in third loss

    Ross (1-3) took the loss Saturday against the Yankees after he gave up seven runs (six earned) on eight hits and three walks in five innings. He struck out five. Ross continued his boom-or-bust tendencies Saturday, as he's given up six earned runs in two starts and three earned runs combined in his other three outings. The veteran right-hander likely has some security in Milwaukee's rotation with Wade Miley (elbow) out for the season and Jakob Junis (shoulder) and DL Hall (knee) also on the shelf, but Ross has a 5.40 ERA and 1.68 WHIP through five starts and is a volatile fantasy option.

  • Brewers' Joe Ross: Effective in loss

    Ross (1-1) took the loss Monday against Pittsburgh, allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits and one walk over 5.1 innings. He struck out four. Ross held the Pirates offense in check Monday night, with the only earned run against him coming on a leadoff homer yielded to Andrew McCutchen. With Monday's effort, the 30-year-old right-hander lowered his ERA to 4.05. Ross appears set to continue sticking in the Milwaukee rotation with DL Hall (knee) and Wade Miley (elbow) recently hitting the injured list. Ross is slated to make his next start against the Yankees at home.

  • Brewers' Joe Ross: Hammered for seven runs

    Ross (1-1) yielded seven runs (six earned) on nine hits and two walks over 4.2 innings Monday, striking out four and taking a loss against the Padres. Ross worked through three shutout frames before the Padres got on the board in the fourth inning. Things unraveled in the fifth when San Diego plated six runs. He's allowed just two runs over 10 innings this season before Monday's rough outing. Ross saw his ERA jump to 4.91 alongside a 14:8 K:BB. Ross is projected to take the mound in St. Louis this weekend.

  • Brewers' Joe Ross: Sharp in first win

    Ross (1-0) earned the win Tuesday against the Reds, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk over 6.1 innings. He struck out seven. Ross looked good Tuesday, holding Cincinnati to a lone run through his first six innings en route to his first big-league win since 2021. The 30-year-old right-hander has allowed just two earned runs over 10 innings through his first two starts. Ross figures to remain in the rotation until Wade Miley (shoulder) and Jakob Junis (shoulder) are able to return. He's currently in line to face the Padres in his next start early next week.

  • Brewers' Joe Ross: Control issues in no-decision

    Ross came away with a no-decision in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to the Twins, giving up two hits and five walks over 3.2 scoreless innings. He struck out three. Making his first big-league start since late 2021, Ross threw only 38 of 73 pitches for strikes before being lifted, although he was able to avoid any damage from all the traffic he put on the basepaths. Despite the shaky outing, he might not be in much danger of losing his spot in the rotation for the time being. Per Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Milwaukee will likely need to use a six-man rotation over the next month, as the team is scheduled for 13 games in a row and 26 over the next 27 days.

  • Brewers' Joe Ross: Starting Wednesday vs. Twins

    Ross will start Wednesday's game against the Twins, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. Ross hasn't pitched in the majors since 2021 and had a 4.50 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 17 strikeouts in 12 innings during spring training. Wade Miley is on the injured list with a shoulder impingement, but the expectation is that he will join the rotation sometime around April 9 or later that week. Once Miley returns, Ross would be a candidate to move to long relief.

  • Brewers' Joe Ross: Viewed as starter

    Brewers manager Pat Murphy said Friday that he views Ross primarily as a starting pitcher, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. He didn't confirm Ross would be in the Brewers' starting rotation for Opening Day, but Murphy's statement does suggest that Ross will be sent to Triple-A Nashville and stay stretched out rather than begin the year in Milwaukee's bullpen should the 30-year-old righty lose out on a big-league rotation job. Ross hasn't pitched in the majors since 2021 and has surrendered five runs across seven innings so far this spring with a 9:6 K:BB.

  • Brewers' Joe Ross: Gets MLB deal from Brewers

    Ross signed a one-year, major-league contract with the Brewers on Monday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports. Ross has thrown a combined 17 innings over the last two seasons -- none of them at the major-league level -- following a second Tommy John surgery. However, that hasn't stopped the Brewers from handing the right-hander a major-league deal in hopes that he's healthy and ready to contribute in 2024. Ross, 30, holds a career 4.26 ERA and 403:141 K:BB over 443.1 innings at the big-league level.

  • Giants' Joe Ross: Signs NRI deal with San Francisco

    Ross (elbow) agreed Monday with the Giants on a minor-league contract and received an invitation to MLB spring training, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Ross underwent Tommy John surgery last May for the second time in his career and will likely miss the start of the 2023 season while recovering from the procedure. The 29-year-old made 20 appearances (19 starts) for the Nationals in 2021 while posting a 4.17 ERA and 109:34 K:BB in 108 innings. Ross could be a rotation option for the Giants in the second half of the season if he responds well to his rehab program, but he can safely be ignored in even the deepest of fantasy leagues until he reaches the point where he's pitching in minor-league games.

  • Nationals' Joe Ross: Set for Tommy John surgery

    Ross (elbow) has elected to undergo Tommy John surgery, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. The 29-year-old exited his first rehab start last week with elbow soreness, and a subsequent MRI revealed a worse sprain than he dealt with previously, resulting in the decision to undergo Tommy John surgery. Ross underwent surgery for a partially torn UCL last summer and also had a bone spur removed from the area in March, but he'll now be sidelined until at least the second half of the 2023 campaign. It will be the second time the right-hander has required the Tommy John procedure in his career, with the previous surgery occurring in June 2017.

  • Nationals' Joe Ross: Elbow injury worsens

    Ross said Wednesday's MRI revealed "more of a sprain" in his right elbow than previous imaging, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. The 28-year-old exited his first rehab start Tuesday due to soreness in his right elbow, and it appears the injury is worse than the one which prompted surgery last year. Ross was dealing with partially torn UCL at that point, and he also had a bone spur removed from the elbow in March. The right-hander has more tests scheduled for Friday, which could determine whether or not he'll require another procedure.

  • Nationals' Joe Ross: Exits rehab start with sore elbow

    Ross was removed from Tuesday's rehab start at Double-A Harrisburg due to right elbow soreness, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports. Ross was making his first rehab appearance Tuesday, but he was removed after three innings due to his elbow issue. The right-hander will undergo an MRI on Wednesday, but manager Dave Martinez called Ross' injury "concerning." Ross initially appeared to be on track to return to game action in early June, but it seems likely that his recovery timetable will be delayed following Tuesday's setback.

  • Nationals' Joe Ross: On track for early June return

    Ross (elbow) is expected to need at least three rehab starts before rejoining the Nationals' rotation, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. The right-hander will begin his rehab stint at Double-A Harrisburg on Tuesday with a target workload of four innings and 60 pitches. Manager Dave Martinez indicated Sunday that the team wants Ross to comfortably be able to throw at least six innings and 90 pitches before being activated, and making three rehab starts would put the 29-year-old on track to make his season debut June 8 in Miami. Ross is coming off a 2021 campaign that showed a hint of promise thanks to a career-best 23.7 percent strikeout rate over 108 innings.

  • Nationals' Joe Ross: Set for rehab assignment

    Ross (elbow) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday at Double-A Harrisburg, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports. The Nationals are targeting around four innings and 60 pitches Tuesday for Ross, who is making his 2022 debut in affiliated ball after he had been sidelined since undergoing surgery in early March to remove a bone spur from his right elbow. Washington will presumably want to see Ross build up his pitch count over at least two or three starts in the minors before integrating him in the rotation in the early portion of June.
