Nationals' Joe Ross: Stumbles against Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (5-9) took the loss Saturday, giving up five runs (four earned) on seven hits and a walk over 4.1 innings as the Nationals fell 6-3 to the Cubs. He struck out five.

The right-hander might be the Nats' de facto ace right now with Max Scherzer in Los Angeles and Stephen Strasburg (neck) having undergone thoracic outlet surgery this week, but he didn't pitch like it Saturday. Ross tossed 54 of 84 pitches for strikes in his shortest outing since May 26, and he'll take a 4.00 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 100:31 K:BB through 96.2 innings into his next start.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Set to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross will start Saturday's game against the Cubs, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Ross returned from the injured list Monday against the Phillies and tossed five shutout innings in the no-decision. The righty tossed 72 pitches Monday and could attempt to increase his workload in Saturday's outing.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Five shutout innings in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (elbow) allowed three hits, two walks and a hit batter while striking out four over five shutout innings in a no-decision versus Philadelphia.

Ross had been out with elbow inflammation since July 7, but he was effective Monday. The right-hander threw 72 pitches (44 strikes) and didn't have his best command, but Philadelphia was unable to punish him for it. He had completed six innings in five of six starts prior to his stint on the injured list. For the year, Ross owns a 3.80 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 95:30 K:BB through 92.1 innings. He lines up for a home start versus the Cubs this weekend.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Reinstated prior to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (elbow) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Monday, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

Ross spent three and a half weeks on the injured list due to right elbow inflammation, but he'll start Monday's series opener in Philadelphia after he completed a bullpen session this weekend without issue. The right-hander struck out a season-high 11 batters in his last start, and he's generated a 2.25 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 20 innings across his last three outings. Outfielder Yadiel Hernandez was optioned to Triple-A Rochester to make room on the active roster.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Returning Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Ross (elbow) will be activated from the 10-day injured list to start Monday's series opener in Philadelphia, Jessica Camerato of reports.

Ross' inflamed right elbow kept him on the shelf for his first two turns through the rotation to open the Nationals' second-half schedule, but he looks like he'll be good to go after he completed a bullpen session earlier in the weekend without issue. Before the elbow issue surfaced, Ross had emerged as one of the Nationals' most dependable arms after a rough start to the season. Dating back to the beginning of June, Ross has gone 3-3 with a 2.31 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 44:6 K:BB across 39 innings.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Throws another bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (elbow) threw another bullpen session Friday, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

Ross has missed nearly three weeks with elbow discomfort. If all goes well following his latest bullpen session, he could potentially head straight back into the rotation without a rehab assignment.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Bullpen session scheduled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (elbow) will throw a bullpen session Wednesday, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

Ross has been out since early July with right elbow inflammation. He felt some discomfort following a bullpen session last week but hasn't been shut down. If he gets through Wednesday's session without issues, it's possible he heads straight back into the starting rotation, though he may go through a live batting practice session or rehab start first.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Still feeling discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (elbow) threw Friday but still felt some discomfort in his elbow, so he'll remain on the injured list for now, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

Ross has already spent the required 10 days on the injured list but is evidently not yet ready to return. He'll need a pain-free bullpen session or two before the Nationals think about activating him, so Paolo Espino will make at least one more start in his place.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross was placed on the 10-day injured list with right elbow inflammation Thursday, retroactive to July 7, Jessica Camerato of reports.

Ross had been pitching quite effectively recently, as he had posted a 2.31 ERA and 0.95 WHIP in 39 innings across his last six starts. The right-hander lined up to make one more start prior to the All-Star break during the team's weekend series against the Giants, but he'll now be unavailable until shortly after the break. Paolo Espino will start in his place against San Francisco on Friday. Ross recently saw a doctor who wasn't very concerned about the injury, but the Nationals hope that the swelling will subside during his absence, per Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington. Manager Dave Martinez is hopeful that the right-hander will only miss one start and that he'll be able to return soon after the All-Star break. Right-hander Ryne Harper was recalled from Triple-A Rochester in a corresponding move.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Whiffs 11 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (5-8) allowed three runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out 11 in 6.2 innings to take the loss against the Dodgers on Sunday.

Ross had earned wins in three of his last four outings and racked up a season-high 11 strikeouts Sunday, but he was forced to settle for the loss as the Nationals mustered just one run in the series finale against the Dodgers. Although the right-hander took his eighth loss of the season Sunday, he's now posted quality starts in five of his last six outings, and he's recorded a 2.31 ERA and 0.95 WHIP in 39 innings during that time. Ross tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against San Francisco on Friday.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Picks up fifth victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (5-7) earned the win Tuesday against the Rays after giving up two runs on six hits with seven strikeouts and two walks across 6.1 innings.

The right-hander kept Tampa Bay off the board through four frames and delivered his second consecutive quality start. Ross made five starts in June and posted a 1.95 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, and 33:6 K:BB over 32.1 innings, but he tentatively lines up for a tough matchup his next time out Sunday versus the Dodgers.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Dominant over Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (4-7) fired seven scoreless innings on four hits and two walks while striking out eight to earn the win over the Marlins on Thursday.

Ross dominated the Marlins in his second-best performance of the season. In his last four appearances, he has three quality, scoreless starts. The 28-year-old has a 4.12 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP with 73 strikeouts in 74.1 innings. His next start is scheduled for Tuesday against the Rays.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Roughed up by Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (3-7) took the loss in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mets, allowing five runs on six hits across five innings. He struck out five and did not issue a walk.

If it wasn't for Francisco Lindor's monster day at the plate, Ross may have come away with a second straight strong outing. The New York shortstop drove in all five runs charged to Ross, taking the right-hander deep for a pair of two-run homers while also adding a run-scoring single. Ross threw 50 of his 67 pitches for strikes and did not issue a walk, suggesting that his control was quite strong during the loss. The 28-year-old will look to fare better when he takes a 4.54 ERA into his start against the Marlins next week.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Lasts eight innings Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (3-6) allowed five hits and no walks while striking out nine in eight scoreless innings to earn the win against the Giants on Sunday.

Ross had been charged with losses in each of his last two outings, but he returned to the win column with his longest start of the season Sunday. He gave up three extra-base hits but didn't allow any runs in the 5-0 win. The right-hander has posted a 4.19 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in 62.1 innings across 12 starts this year. He tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Mets on Friday.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Takes unlucky loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (2-6) was tagged with the loss Saturday against the Phillies after allowing four unearned runs on three hits and two walks across six innings.

Ross cruised through the first three innings, but the wheels came off in the fourth and he was unable to recover from a four-run inning that was highlighted by Andrew McCutchen's three-run shot. The veteran right-hander has allowed at least four runs in four of his last five starts and has gone winless in each of his last seven starts. His next start is tentatively scheduled for next week at home against the Giants.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Strikes out seven in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (2-5) allowed four runs on three hits and three walks with seven strikeouts in five innings in a loss to Atlanta on Monday.

Ross struggled with the first time through the order as Atlanta racked up three runs in the first inning. Ronald Acuna added a solo shot off the right-hander in the second, and Washington's offense was unable to bail out its starter. Ross has a 5.40 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 47:22 K:BB across 48.1 innings this season. He lines up to face Philadelphia this weekend.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Cheated of win by rain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross gave up three hits and a walk over four scoreless innings without factoring into the decision in a 5-3 win over the Reds, a game that was suspended by rain and completed Thursday afternoon. He struck out four.

The right-hander was locked in Wednesday night, tossing 38 of 55 pitches for strikes, and the Nats had a 3-0 lead when the skies opened up. Ross would have been in line for his third win had the game not been put on pause, and he'll take a 5.19 ERA and 40:19 K:BB through 43.1 innings into his next outing.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Early exit in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (2-4) was charged with the loss Thursday against the Cubs, allowing four runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk while striking out three across 3.2 innings.

Ross couldn't go the distance in this one, turning in his shortest start of the year while giving up his ninth homer in eight appearances. With the loss, the right-hander's career record against the Cubs falls to 0-3 in seven games (six starts). On the season, Ross has posted a 5.72 ERA and 1.47 WHIP and will look to turn things around during his next projected outing at home Wednesday against Cincinnati.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Roughed up Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (2-3) took the loss against Arizona on Saturday, giving up eight runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out five over four innings.

The right-hander gave up three runs in the first inning and another three in the fourth. He returned to the mound in the fifth frame and allowed the first two batters of the inning to reach base, leading to his removal from the contest. Both baserunners eventually came around to score, and Ross was charged with eight total runs in his shortest outing of the campaign. He has allowed two or fewer runs in five of his seven starts this season, but two disastrous outings have pushed his ERA to an undesirable 5.80. Ross will look for a better result in his next start, which is tentatively scheduled for Thursday at Wrigley Field.

Nationals' Joe Ross: Fans seven in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross allowed two runs on three hits and five walks while striking out seven in five innings in Sunday's loss to the Yankees. He didn't factor into the decision.

Ross racked up a season-high seven strikeouts Sunday, but he had some issues with command. The right-hander threw only 53 of his 97 pitches for strikes, and he issued a season-high five walks as a result. Ross has posted a 4.26 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 31.2 innings across six starts this year. He tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Arizona on Saturday.
