MLB Injury News:
The San Diego Padres are no strangers to injury. They were hit hard in 2012 with injuries. Fortunately this season was not as bad, but they still experienced their fair share. That includes Tyson Ross. Ross suffered through shoulder problems and eventually succumbed to surgery this week.
According to the Associated Press, Ross had left shoulder surgery (his non-throwing shoulder). Because the surgery was to his non-throwing shoulder, Ross is expected to be ready for spring training. Ross was able to pitch through the injury for the most part. The procedure itself was a simple arthroscopic clean-up.
Ross played three seasons with the Oakland A's before coming to San Diego. With the Padres this season, Ross went 3-9 with a 3.17 ERA. The Padres did not offer up much offensive support, so his record is misleading. The team and fans are generally excited to see what the 26-year old can do going forward.
Oakland drafted Ross as a local kid who grew up and went to college in the Bay Area. In his three seasons with the A's, he struggled. Ross was 6-18 with a 5.33 ERA. Both the Padres and the A's have used Ross as a starter and a reliever. San Diego seems to want to convert him to starter full-time.
