|Robbie Ross makes first Cactus League appearance |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/2/14) Rangers pitcher Robbie Ross turned in a decent outing in his Cactus League debut on Sunday against the White Sox.
Ross surrendered a run-scoring single to Mike McDade in the opening frame for his only blemish of the day. He allowed just one run on two hits and one walk over two innings of work in a 9-7 defeat.
|Robbie Ross focusing on his changeup |

(2/18/14) Rangers pitcher Robbie Ross is focused on improving his changeup, according to ESPN.
Following the 2013 season, the team asked Ross whether he still wanted to be a starter. When he said yes, the club asked him to pitch in winter ball. Ross said he wanted to refine the changeup because he knows he needs three pitches in order to succeed as a starter.
Ross was encouraged by his winter league performance. "The changeup was way better [in the Dominican]," Ross said. He added that while he's tinkered with a changeup over the past few years, he's rarely had the confidence to throw one during a game. "I always tried to throw them and work on them when I wasn't in the game, but when I got in a game, I threw my two best ones -- fastball and slider," Ross said.
Last season, Ross posted a 3.03 ERA in 62 1/3 innings.
|Robbie Ross goes through winter tune-up |

(1/26/14) Rangers pitcher Robbie Ross opted to pitch in the Dominican Winter League this offseason to help prepare him to battle for a rotation spot this spring. The left-handed hurler was 0-1 with a 4.05 ERA and .245 opponents' batting average in four starts.
"(It was) just experiencing being a starter again, just going out there and getting some innings logged in," Ross said, per ESPN. "Also just getting stretched out to the point of feeling like ‘Here we go’ right into the possibility of being a starter and stretching out innings wise. Also having those days of rest getting ready. It was definitely a good experience just getting to go there, kind of get the different innings under my belt."
Ross has performed well as a major-league reliever, going 10-2 with a 2.62 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 123 career appearances. However, he wants to win a spot in the rotation.
"I’ve always wanted to be a starter," Ross said. "That’s been my goal ever since I was younger, and when I got into the big leagues it was like at some point I’d like to start. I like being in the big leagues. Definitely, if I could do I as a starter that would be great, but I also like it as a reliever."
