by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (5/15/2013) Padres pitcher Tyson Ross is expected to rejoin the rotation once his non-throwing shoulder is deemed healthy enough for him to swing a bat, according to MLB.com. Ross began the season as a starter before going on the disbaled list in April after he suffered a subluxation of his left shoulder while recording his first major-league hit.
"We still see him as a starting pitcher," Padres manager Bud Black said. "But that will be left shoulder related and whether he's physically able to do that. Right now, his strength is improving. In due time, he has to get in a cage."
Ross, who tossed four scoreless innings in relief Saturday, said he's been happy with his recovery.
"It's been good," Ross said. "I'm still able to pitch with it. It was nice to get some work the other day. I was happy to get an extended outing. I've just been getting treatment, doing exercises and I've been feeling good. We want to push it, so I'll see the doctors when we can get home. Hopefully, they can extend my leash a little."
