|Robbie Ross undefeated in MLB career|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/20/13) Rangers reliever Robbie Ross earned the win in Sunday's 11-8 victory over Detroit, making him 2-0 this season and 8-0 in his career. Ross tied Yankees' reliever Clay Rapada for the most wins without a loss in MLB history, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
“Honestly, I think wins start to matter when you’re a starter," Ross said. "If I have a start and get a win, it’s a win. Coming in relief, I’m just trying to help the team win."
Ross has a 0.46 ERA through 18 outings, with five holds and 14 strikeouts in 19 2/3 innings this season.
|Robbie Ross to begin season as setup man|

(3/27/13) Rangers manager Ron Washington named left-handed pitcher Robbie Ross as one of his two primary setup men to begin the year, according to the Dallas Morning News. Ross was in the running for a rotation spot this spring before being shifted to the bullpen. Ross has allowed five earned runs in 18 1/3 innings of work, posting a 2.45 ERA and 1.47 WHIP.

(3/22/13) Robbie Ross, once thought to be a competitor for the Rangers' fifth starter job, has been shifted to the bullpen, ESPN Dallas reports.
Ross, 24, allowed a 3.07 ERA in 14.2 spring innings but struggled with his control. He walked seven batters and hit another, and manager Ron Washington said he was struggling to adapt to the role. The club will use him out of the bullpen, where he posted a 2.22 ERA last season.
|Robbie Ross headed to the bullpen|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/21/13) The Rangers announced Thursday that left-hander Robbie Ross will pitch out of the bullpen to start the year.
Ross has posted a 3.07 ERA and 1.57 WHIP through 14 2/3 innings this spring, striking out eight and walking seven. He gives the Rangers a second lefty in the bullpen.
The announcement also opens the door for Nick Tepesch to begin the season in the Rangers rotation, although the team could also consider Derek Lowe or outside help for that fifth spot.
|Robbie Ross picks up second spring win|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/17/13) Rangers rotation candidate Robbie Ross picked up his second Cactus League win Sunday against the Cubs. Ross, who was originally projected for five innings Sunday, lasted only three as he ran up his pitch count. He tossed three scoreless innings and gave up four hits in an 8-5 victory. He struck out four and walked three as he improved his ERA to 3.07 this spring.
Ross is competing with non-roster invitee Nick Tepesch for the final spot in the rotation. Tepesch has a 3.46 ERA and 10 strikeouts in 13 innings of work.
|If you played Fantasy in 2012, you will remember Robbie Ross as the player who would pop up at the top of most free agent searches because he had five wins by May 18. He accompanied that with a 2.22 ERA and 1.20 WHIP. Ross is a decent option for a roster in need of some ratio-lowering, but he doesn't offer the high strikeout rate that comes along with many other relievers one can slot in the role. There's a reason Ross remained on free agent wires last year, and it's mainly due to the lack of strikeouts (and, of course, the early fluke wins). A starter for most of his career, if Ross gets a shot at the rotation, he could put up some really nice numbers from a RP spot. But if he continues to toil in middle relief, consider him waiver wire material. (Updated 1/8/13)|
