Padres RHP Ross mediocre again in loss to Rockies


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Mediocrity continued to define the early-season performance of Padres starter Tyson Ross on Thursday in a loss to Colorado.

Ross needed 106 pitches to get through five innings, greatly because he walked four. He gave up two runs on six hits and fanned seven. A Corey Dickerson home run in the fifth played the biggest role in lowering his record to 1-1.

The right-hander has not pitched more than six innings in any game in 2015, though he hasn't performed poorly. He owns a 3.97 ERA, which he will try to lower Tuesday against Houston.


Padres SP Tyson Ross continues to rely on fastball-slider combo


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) There is no denying Padres starting pitcher Tyson Ross loves relying on his slider. He threw the pitch 276 more times than any other pitcher in 2014 and has already thrown it 118 times through three starts this season, per U-T San Diego.

Ross is primarily a two-pitch starter since he doesn't throw a curveball and his changeup isn't a reliable pitch yet. Still, pitching coach Darren Balsley is fine with Ross throwing a high percentage of sliders.

“I’ll tell you why I don’t get concerned with him -- he still throws 60 percent fastballs,” Balsley said this spring. “The major league average is anywhere from 55 to 60. If he had a curveball and threw 20 percent curves and 20 percent sliders, he’d still be throwing 40 percent breaking balls, which a lot of guys do -- or offseason pitches in general. He might throw more changeups this year so it could limit the sliders he throws.

“But I look at it as a breaking ball is a breaking ball and he only has one. He’s basically a two-pitch pitcher right now.”


Wild Padres righty Tyson Ross lucky to get no-decision


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Padres right-hander Tyson Ross got plenty of swings-and-misses Saturday against the host Cubs, but that's about the only positive aspect of his outing.

Ross struck out nine in 5 2/3 innings, but he also blew a 2-0 lead, gave up three earned runs, walked five and allowed five hits, including a home run to Miguel Montero that knocked him out of the game. Only a late comeback by San Diego allowed Ross to escape defeat.

Now with 12 walks in 17 2/3 innings pitched this season, Ross will try to zero in on the plate when he pitches Thursday at Colorado.


Padres P Tyson Ross gives up three runs in win over Giants


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Padres starting pitcher Tyson Ross allowed three earned runs in Sunday's 6-4 win over the Giants. 

Ross gave up a run each in the second, third and sixth innings. He was aided by a Wil Nieves grand slam in the fourth. Ross gave up five hits in the outing. He struck out eight batters and walked four. 

"It's a grind and I didn't have my best stuff today, but I'm going to give it everything I've got," Ross said, via MLB.com. "The guys picked me up today."


Padres SP Tyson Ross goes six innings strong in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Padres pitcher Tyson Ross went six innings strong, but was unable to factor into the decision Tuesday night against the Dodgers.

Ross, who made his season debut, tossed five scoreless innings before running into trouble in the sixth. He surrendered a run-scoring double to Adrian Gonzalez and a run-scoring single to Howie Kendrick. The right-hander permitted two earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four over six innings of work. Of his 90 pitches, 52 were strikes.

Ross will seek his first win of the season Sunday at home against San Francisco. He went 2-0 with a 2.70 ERA in two starts against the Giants last season.


Padres' Tyson Ross tosses three scoreless innings Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) Padres pitcher Tyson Ross allowed just two hits and one walk in three scoreless innings while striking out one in his team's 6-5 win over the Brewers Thursday.

"I fell like I made some strides down here," Ross said after the outing, per MLB.com. "I feel like I'm ready to go. It's April 2. I'm feeling healthy and I'm looking forward to the long haul of the season."

Ross closes out the spring with a 2.49 ERA and 25:8 K:BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings. He'll open the regular season with a road matchup against the Dodgers Tuesday.


Padres P Tyson Ross feeling good, ready for start of season


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) 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.


Padres pitcher Tyson Ross working slider into pitch selection


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) 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
(3/8/2015) 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
(2/20/2015) 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.


Padres' Tyson Ross, Yonder Alonso avoid arbitration


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) Padres right-hander Tyson Ross and Yonder Alonso both avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contracts, per the team's official website. Ross has settled for $5.25 million, per MLB.com. Alonso is set to make $1.65 million in 2015, per ESPN.

Ross registered a 2.81 ERA and 195 strikeouts over 195 2/3 innings last season. Alonso slashed .240/.285/.397 with seven homers and 27 RBI over 267 at-bats.


Report: Padres listening to trade offers on Kennedy, Cashner, Ross


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) The Padres continue to listen to trade offers on their top starting pitchers -- Ian Kennedy, Tyson Ross and Andrew Cashner -- as they look to upgrade their offense, according to FOX Sports. 

All three players are under team control through at least 2015. Kennedy can be a free agent after next season, Cashner will be a free agent after the 2016 season and Ross won't be a free agent until after 2017.

Kennedy and Ross tied for a team-high 13 wins in 2014. Ross had a 2.81 ERA and Kennedy had a 3.63 ERA. Cashner went 5-7 with a 2.55 ERA in 19 starts.


Tyson Ross shut down for remainder of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) Padres manager Bud Black announced that starting pitcher Tyson Ross will be shut down for the remainder of the season. Joe Wieland will get the start Wednesday in his place, the team announced.

Ross made his final start on Sept. 13 and was unable to pitch again due to discomfort in his lower forearm. His 2014 season comes to an end with a 2.81 ERA and 195 strikeouts over 195 2/3 innings.


Tyson Ross turns focus to 2015


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2014) Padres starting pitcher Tyson Ross, who missed his last start because of discomfort in his lower forearm, realizes he may have pitched for the last time this season, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

"I think the focus now is the long term, the 2015 season," he said. "I'd like to pitch, but I also need to get ready for next season and pitching deep into October."

Though Ross played catch Thursday and Friday, he hasn't exactly stayed in his routine since the injury, spending much of his time in the training room, which also diminishes his chances of returning this season.

"If he can amass the same number of innings or more next year, they're probably more important than the innings he might pitch the remainder of this week," manager Bud Black said.


Robbie Erlin to fill in for Tyson Ross again


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/21/2014) The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Padres lefty Robbie Erlin will start in place of the injured Tyson Ross for Tuesday's game against the Rockies. He did the same on Thursday, as Ross missed his turn due to discomfort in his lower forearm.

It is not yet known if Ross will make another start before the end of the season.


Tyson Ross to miss next start due to general soreness


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Padres pitcher Tyson Ross will have his next start pushed back a few days, according to U-T San Diego. Ross experienced general soreness in his previous start on Saturday, which he gave up six runs -- four earned -- on five hits and two walks while striking out four over three innings. Robbie Erlin will get the start in his place.

Padres not looking to slow down Tyson Ross


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/15/2014) Even though Tyson Ross' worst start of the season Saturday at Arizona also happened to be his first since topping his previous career high in innings by 40, the Padres ace doesn't think the workload is catching up to him.

"I think it's just a bump in the road," Ross told the San Diego Union-Tribune Saturday. "It could have been the 31st start. It could have been the third start. It was bound to happen and the key for me is to get a good night's rest, come to the park [Sunday] and start my process all over again and prepare for the next one."

Manager Bud Black said the Padres don't plan to limit Ross' workload over the final two weeks.

"It's good for Tyson to finish the season strong as he goes into the winter knowing that he's done it once he can do it again -- break 200 innings, make 33, 34 starts," Black said. "That means a lot to a pitcher as far as confidence and the mental edge that that brings, knowing that you can do that."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

He owns a 2.62 ERA and 157:54 K:BB ratio in 154 2/3 innings. Ross is scheduled to take on the Pirates next Sunday.
