Padres P Tyson Ross feeling good, ready for start of season
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/28/15) Padres pitcher Tyson Ross is feeling ready to get the season under way, according to the Press-Enterprise.
“Physically I felt good,” he said. “It’s been a good spring so far, another step in the right direction … I had a good feel for my sinker today and I was able to get some strikeouts with that, running it back away from right-handed hitters and not just using my slider.”
Ross is working on his changeup and he wants to use it more often.
“It’s kind of hard when the other pitches are working well, but it’s going to be a pitch I need to use the third time through the lineup, to get a little separation (in speed) off the fastball and slider,” he said. “I mixed in a couple today and I’m going to keep working it in.”
Manager Bud Black said that could be what he needs to get to the next level.
“It’s tough, because if you take a regular season game and he’s fighting like heck to keep the other team from scoring, you never want to get beat on your third or fourth pitch,” Black said. “The other two are so devastating, it’s tough not to go in that direction.”
On Saturday, the right-hander struck out 12 batters in six innings while giving up six hits and one run.
Ross, 27, has a career ERA of 3.70 with 416 stirkeouts and 186 walks in five years of play.

|(3/23/15) Padres pitcher Tyson Ross tossed five scoreless innings Monday, notching five strikeouts and allowing just one hit. The biggest thing for Ross is working in his slider and offspeed pitches, which he used 41 percent of the time in 2014, reports U-T San Diego.
"I think it's just continuing to use it in the right situations and the ability to throw my fastball in the strike zone and put pressure on the hitters with the speed differential (between fastball and slider)," Ross said. "I'm not going to try and make (my slider) bigger, harder or nastier. I think just using it smarter can be a key."
Padres' Tyson Ross makes spring debut on the mound Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/8/15) Padres pitcher Tyson Ross struggled a bit in his spring training debut Sunday. The right-hander labored through 45 pitches in one-plus inning of work against the Rockies. Manager Bud Black didn't sound too concerned after the game, according to UT San Diego.
"I thought his stuff was good," Black said. "Usual slider. He just pulled some fastballs out of the zone, glove side. He was just cutting himself off a little bit, not getting great extension or great finish."
Ross will use his off days to continue working on his delivery.
"I've been waiting all offseason to pitch," he said. "It's a long year, long spring, and today's just the first one. I've got tomorrow and the next four days to get better."
Padres' Tyson Ross may start throwing split-change more often
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(2/20/15) Catcher Derek Norris joins the Padres after an offseason trade with the Athletics. He's reunited with former Athletics' pitcher Tyson Ross, and his knowledge of Ross could provide the starting pitcher with a new weapon.
Norris told U-T San Diego's Dennis Lin that Ross has a split-change, that he used to throw more often while on the A's staff.
"I think it's something we're going to be using a little more of," Norris said, "but obviously sparingly until he gets a good feel for it.
|2014 summary: Tyson Ross' first full season as a starter worked out well for Fantasy owners, as he was a top 30 starting pitcher in spite of the utter lack of run support he got from the Padres' lineup. Ross' 13-14 record was offset by a 2.81 ERA and 195 strikeouts in 195 2/3 innings. It seemed that Ross had even tamed his long-standing control issues during the season's first half, walking 43 batters in 129 2/3 innings, but he regressed after the break with 29 walks in 66 innings. |
Playing time status: Ross was shut down in mid-September due to a slight flexor strain in his lower right forearm, but he is recovered and on track to be ready for spring training.
2015 outlook: The forearm injury that Ross developed late is concerning, but as long as he stays healthy, he should repeat as a top 30 starter. Look to draft him in the early portion of the middle rounds in standard mixed leagues.
