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.
Ross (elbow) could earn a roster spot as a reliever, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Ross allowed three earned runs through 3.2 innings in Cactus League action before play was suspended. However, he remained healthy, a big step considering he has battled multiple serious injuries since the 2016 season. Due to his lack of durability and the team's desire to evaluate younger players, Ross' most likely role would be as a multi-inning reliever if he were to win a roster spot with the Giants.
Ross (elbow) felt good after throwing an inning Friday against Colorado, Evan Webeck of The Mercury News reports.
Friday's outing was Ross' first game action since being shut down due to ulnar neuritis back in May. He's in camp with the Giants as a non-roster invitee and has a shot at a rotation spot if healthy, but expectations should probably be low for an oft-injured veteran who has just one season with an ERA below 6.00 in the last four years.
Ross (elbow) signed a one year, $1.75 million minor-league contract with the Giants on Friday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
Ross spent the 2019 season with the Tigers, but elbow and neck injuries sidelined him for most of the season. He made seven starts, accruing a 6.11 ERA and 1.67 WHIP with a 25:18 K:BB over 35.1 frames. He began throwing off a mound in August, though it remains to be seen if he'll be ready for the start of spring training. If healthy, Ross figures to begin the 2020 campaign in the minors, though he could certainly work his way into the big-league rotation if he performs well at Triple-A Sacramento.
Ross (elbow) has begun throwing off the mound, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
There is still a lot for Ross to accomplish during his rehab before he could return to the majors, and the clock is ticking on him getting back before the end of the season. He will likely continue to ramp up before beginning a lengthy rehab assignment.
Ross (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday.
Ross has been on the shelf since May 12 due to ulnar neuritis in his right elbow, and following this latest move, he won't be eligible to return until mid-July. Bobby Wilson had his contract selected from Triple-A Toledo in a corresponding move.
Ross (elbow) will be shut down from throwing for five days due to neck stiffness, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Ross has been out for a month with ulnar neuritis in his right elbow. He had been tracking towards a return to action in late June, though this latest setback likely pushes his timeline back.
Tigers general manager Al Avila said Sunday that he's hopeful Ross (elbow) will return from the 10-day injured list in 2-to-3 weeks, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Ross has been sidelined since May 10 after being diagnosed with ulnar neuritis in his right elbow. He took a major step forward last week by throwing a bullpen session, and could be ready to face hitters in live batting practice at some point during the current week. Since he's already missed a month with the injury, Ross would probably require at least two minor-league rehab starts or simulated games before rejoining the Tigers. Assuming he hits no snags in his recovery along the way, Ross could be ready to slot back into the rotation in late June or early July.
Ross (elbow) will throw a bullpen session Thursday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Thursday's mound session will be the right-hander's first since landing on the injured list back in mid-May with ulnar neuritis in his right elbow. While this is a step in the right direction for Ross, a timetable for his return likely won't emerge until he's cleared to face live hitters.
Ross (elbow) was recently cleared to resume light throwing off flat ground, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Shut down since May 11 while contending with ulnar neuritis in his right elbow, Ross has finally taken a step forward in his recovery, albeit a minor one. The Tigers likely won't have a clear idea regarding Ross's timeline for a return until he resumes facing hitters, something that's unlikely to happen for at least another week or two. With that in mind, it's probably safe to expect Ross to remain on the 10-day injured list until mid-June, if not longer.
Ross (elbow) won't throw for another 7-to-10 days, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
The opinions Ross heard about his ulnar neuritis over the past two days were framed as largely positive, as he hasn't suffered any major setbacks, but he'll still be shut down for a period of time. It's unclear when the Tigers expect him back on the field.
Manager Ron Gardenhire said that the initial opinion Ross received from doctors on his right elbow was good, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Ross was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday but wasn't given a clear timeline to resume pitching after receiving a diagnosis of ulnar neuritis. Though Dr. Robert Thompson seemed to rule out a major setback for Ross, the right-hander will consult additional specialists in the coming days to verify that a significant elbow issue isn't in play. Once Ross has received sufficient information, the Tigers should reveal a potential target date for his return.
Ross (elbow) will meet with two different physicians to determine the correct course of treatment, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Ross was sent to the 10-day injured list with ulnar neuritis in his right elbow, and the next step for the right-hander remains unclear at this point. One of the doctors he's set to visit, Dr. Robert Thompson, performed his thoracic outlet surgery back in 2016.

Ross didn't look sharp in his last outing Friday, allowing six runs over five innings of work, and it's since been revealed that the injury played a role in his poor performance. "It came on in my last start," stated Ross. "I woke up the next day hoping it was feeling better, but it wasn't. After a couple days of treatment it hasn't improved." The right-hander will miss at least one start while on the shelf, and he could remain out longer if the issue lingers. Detroit has yet to decide who will start in Ross's place Wednesday against the Astros.
Ross (1-5) took the loss Friday as the Tigers were downed 6-0 by the Twins, allowing all six runs on six hits and four walks over five innings while striking out two.
Two of the hits left the yard, and Ross threw only 53 of 90 pitches for strikes while generating a subpar five swinging strikes. The right-hander has only managed one quality start in seven trips to the mound so far for Detroit, and he'll take a 6.11 ERA and 25:18 K:BB through 35.1 innings into his next outing Wednesday, at home against the Astros.
Ross (back) is listed as the TIgers' scheduled starter for Friday's game against the Twins, Field Level Media reports.
Heading into the week, Ross had been in line to start in Thursday's series finale against the Angels, but those plans were scrapped when he developed back stiffness. An extra day to rest up was apparently all Ross needed to overcome the issue, so he'll be plugged back into the Tigers' pitching schedule for the start of a four-game set in Minnesota. He'll oppose Jake Odorizzi in the series opener.
Ross has been battling a stiff back, so his next start will be pushed to Friday against the Twins, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
The Tigers have moved Ross' outing from Thursday to Friday. Ryan Carpenter is expected to be called up from Triple-A Toledo and toe the rubber Thursday.
Ross (1-4) took the loss against the Royals on Saturday by giving up five runs on seven hits over 1.1 innings. He struck out one and walked two.
Ross faced only 13 batters but managed to give up four extra-base hits as he was unable to get through the second inning. It's the first time in six starts this season the right-hander hasn't completed five frames. The 32-year-old has a 5.34 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 23:14 K:BB across 30.1 innings to begin the year and lines up to pitch Thursday versus the Angels.
Ross is slated to start Saturday's game against the Royals.
Ross rejoined the team Friday after spending the full three days on the paternity list following the birth of his child. Due to a pair of off days this week, the Tigers weren't forced to add a spot starter to the mix in Ross' stead. Detroit won't require a replacement in the rotation for the injured Jordan Zimmermann (elbow) until the May 11 doubleheader in Minnesota.
