Nationals SP Joe Ross gives up three runs in loss to Pirates


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/26/2015) Nationals starting pitcher Joe Ross didn't have enough to pull off a win against the Pirates on Sunday.

Ross pitched a solid game, allowing just three runs on five hits in six innings of work. He struck out seven batters and allowed just one walk, but ended up with his third loss of the season.

Ross (2-3) now has a 3.03 ERA with 34 strikeouts and three walks in 32 2/3 innings this season.


Nationals SP Joe Ross pitches well, suffers tough loss on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/21/2015) Nationals rookie pitcher Joe Ross was solid in his outing against the Mets on Tuesday. The young right-hander went 6 1/3 innings, allowing three runs--two earned--on four hits. He struck out four and did not allow a walk, throwing 59 of his 88 pitches for strikes in the 7-2 loss.

Ross (2-2, 2.70 ERA) gave up a run in the fourth to put his club down 1-0. But the Nationals rallied back to take the lead in the bottom of the fifth. Ross then allowed two of the first three batters to reach in the seventh before being lifted for a reliever. The bullpen would allow both of those runners to score, leaving Ross with the tough loss.

Ross was making his first big-league start in nearly a month, as he had been recalled from Triple-A earlier on Tuesday.  It is not currently known if he will stick around to make another start.


Nationals recall SP Ross, demote INF Difo


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/21/2015) The Nationals made the official move of calling up pitcher Joe Ross from Triple-A Syracuse to start Tuesday night's game against the Mets, with the corresponding move of demoting infielder Wilmer Difo back to Double-A Harrisburg, per The Washington Post

Ross was 2-1 with a 2.66 ERA in three spot starts for the Nationals earlier this season. Difo has one hit in eight at-bats during three brief stints in Washington this year. 


Joe Ross will start for Nationals on Tuesday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2015) Joe Ross will start Tuesday's game for the Nationals, manager Matt Williams announced.

Ross has started three games for the team this season, going 2-1 with a 2.66 ERA. 

Ross will need to be recalled from Triple-A Syracuse before Tuesday's game. He's currently 3-1, 2.19 at Syracuse. 


Nationals demote SP Joe Ross after encouraging run


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2015) The Nationals have optioned pitcher Joe Ross to Triple-A Syracuse to make room for Stephen Strasburg, who has been activated off the disabled list.

The 22-year-old Ross certainly opened some eyes in his short stint with Washington. He allowed just six runs in 20 1/3 innings over three starts, walking two and fanned 23 along the way.


Return of Strasburg knocks Nationals SP Joe Ross out of rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2015) It appears that Nationals impressive right-hander Joe Ross will not get another start as Stephen Strasburg is set to make his next one at the major league level. Matt Williams has nixed the notion of a six-man rotation.

Ross, however, has certainly made an impression. "He's opened eyes ... seriously opened eyes," Williams told MASNSports.com.

The 22 year old allowed only six runs on 19 hits with 23 strikeouts in 21 innings over three outings. He walked just two along the way.


Nationals SP Joe Ross stymies Pirates' offense on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/19/2015) Nationals rookie pitcher Joe Ross turned in a terrific outing on Friday against the Pirates. Ross pitched into the eighth inning, allowing one run on six hits over 7 1/3 innings. He walked one and struck out a career-high 11 batters.

Ross (2-1) was making his third career start, and the 11 strikeouts were one shy of the total from his first two starts combined. The only run he gave up came in the second inning on an RBI single by Gregory Polanco.

The impressive outing lowered Ross' ERA to 2.66.

"I think that he's aggressive," Nationals manager Matt Williams said, per MLB.com. "He throws strikes down in the zone, which leads to a lot of swings on the slider down out of the zone, but it starts with the fastball."

With Stephen Strasburg still on the DL, Ross will likely get at least one more start, which would be scheduled for Thursday at home against the Braves.


Nationals P Joe Ross to start Friday


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2015) The Nationals will start pitcher Joe Ross on the mound for Friday's game against the Pirates, according to The Washington Post's Chelsea Janes. 

Max Scherzer was originally slated to start Friday but each member in the rotation is getting pushed back a day. Scherzer will now start Saturday and Gio Gonzalez on Sunday. 

Ross was impressive in his last start in which he only gave up two runs in a 7-2 victory over the Brewers. 


Nationals SP Joe Ross picks up first MLB win in dominant effort


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/13/2015) Nationals pitcher Joe Ross, who was making just the second start of his young career, was in control from the outset Saturday, helping the Nationals take a 7-2 victory over the Brewers. 

Ross went eight innings and scattered seven hits while allowing just two runs. He struck out eight batters and walked just one to pick up his first big-league victory. Ross was a hard-luck loser in his MLB debut after allowing six hits and three runs in five innings of work last Saturday.

"I didn't walk anyone until the second-to-last batter. That helped with pitch count," Ross said, per MLB.com. "We were a little short [in the bullpen], so it was huge for us."

Ross threw 108 pitches and tossed first-pitch strikes to 23 of the 32 batters he faced. 

"We needed that one," manager Matt Williams said. "He was aggressive in the strike zone, getting ahead of guys. He was throwing where he wants to, that's the most important thing."


Joe Ross just so-so in first start Saturday for Nationals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2015) The first career start for Nationals right-hander Joe Ross could have been worse. Then again, it could have been better.

Ross was fine for four innings Saturday in a loss to the Cubs, allowing only one run on an infield single by Kris Bryant. But he imploded in the fifth, giving up a two-out RBI single to Dexter Fowler followed by a run-scoring double by Anthony Rizzo.

"It was good. I felt really good," Ross said. "It was exciting, obviously. I was a little nervous. But it's the same game going out there you want to pitch. I had great defense behind me. There was a lot of balls hit hard that got picked up or caught that was a little comforting knowing you had the guys behind you like that.

"It was better than I expected the first three innings. The second time through the lineup they kind of I guess picked up what I was doing, what I was throwing, put some better barrels on the ball. It made it a lot tougher for me out of the stretch."

He finished having yielded three runs in five innings with no walks and four strikeouts.

It remains to be seen if Ross gets another start. He could pitch next weekend in Milwaukee.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2015) The Nationals purchased the contract of right-hander Joe Ross, optioned right-handed pitcher A.J. Cole to Triple-A Syracuse, and moved right-handed pitcher Craig Stammen to the 60-day disabled list on Saturday, per the team's official website.

Ross will make his big-league debut on Saturday against the Cubs. He went 2-2 with a 2.81 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP and 54:12 K:BB ratio over nine starts (51 1/3 innings) in the minors.

Cole made three appearances -- including one start -- for the Nationals, notching one save in 9 1/3 innings of work.

Padres, Nats, Rays announce Wil Myers trade


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) The Padres officially announced an 11-player, three-team trade that sent Wil Myers from Tampa Bay to San Diego on Friday, per the team's official website.

San Diego acquired Myers, catcher Ryan Hanigan, left-handed pitcher Jose Castillo and right-handed pitcher Gerardo Reyes from the Rays. Tampa Bay received catcher Rene Rivera, right-handed pitcher Burch Smith and infielder Jake Bauers from San Diego and outfielder Steven Souza and left-handed pitcher Travis Ott from Washington. Meanwhile, the Nationals received right-handed pitcher Joe Ross and a player to be named later, likely infielder Trea Turner, per CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.


Padres, Rays and Nationals complete Wil Myers trade


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) The Padres, Rays and Nationals have completed a trade that will send Wil Myers to San Diego, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

The deal had been in the works for a few days, but was finally agreed to late Thursday night. Myers, 24, will head to the Padres in the deal. He hit .222/.294/.320 over 325 at-bats with the Rays last season. Myers also missed time due to a wrist injury. 

The Padres will also receive catcher Ryan Hanigan and pitchers Gerardo Reyes and Jose Castillo in the deal. 

Tampa Bay will receive outfielder Steven Souza and pitcher Travis Ott from the Nationals. Souza, 25, hit .345/.427/.577 in 357 at-bats spread over three levels last year. 

The Rays will also receive catcher Rene Rivera, first baseman Jake Bauers and pitcher Burch Smith from San Diego.

Washington is set to acquire pitcher Joe Ross from San Diego. The team will also receive infielder Trea Turner in the deal. Turner was a 2014 draft pick, and cannot be traded until midseason, so he's currently considered a player to be named later.


Padres, Rays and Nationals on the verge of three-team deal


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) The Nationals, Padres and Rays are on the verge of a three-team deal, which would send outfielder Wil Myers to San Diego, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. 

Heyman has confirmed the multiple media reports outlining the full details of the trade. The Padres are set to receive Myers, catcher Ryan Hanigan, pitcher Gerardo Reyes and pitcher Jose Castillo from the Rays.

The Rays are getting two players from the Nationals -- outfielder Steven Souza and pitcher Travis Ott -- and three players from the Padres -- catcher Rene Rivera, first baseman Jake Bauers and pitcher Burch Smith.

The Nationals are getting pitcher Joe Ross from the Padres, as well as a player to be named later, which will be shortstop prospect Trea Turner. Because Turner was a 2014 draft pick, he can't be traded until June.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Ross was a top-100 prospect in baseball two years ago, but had fallen off the pace over the last few seasons. He had a 3.98 ERA with 87 strikeouts in 101 2/3 for Class A Lake Elsinore earlier in the season.
