The San Diego Padres have placed right-handed starting
pitcher Tyson Ross on the 15-day disabled list due to a subluxation of his left
shoulder, the team has announced.
Ross suffered his injury not on the mound, but at the plate,
when he was following through on a swing during the third inning of a recent
contest against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Padres want to make sure the
non-throwing shoulder heals so that he can swing a bat and field his positions,
according to manager Bud Black.
While he was frustrated that he’ll have to hit the DL, Ross
did say his shoulder has been feeling better each day. It sounds like he’s
hopeful that he’ll be able to return when eligible.
Prior to suffering his injury, Ross had been decent over his
first three starts for San Diego. The 26-year-old maintained an ERA of 3.86
over 14 innings, though he surrendered 14 hits and 10 walks over that span.
To replace Ross on the roster, the Padres called up
right-hander Thad Weber from Triple-A. He had posted a 0.82 ERA over two starts
in the minors this year.
