Nationals’ Prospect Joe Ross Excelling for Harrisburg Senators

You could forgive Washington Nationals’ fourth-ranked prospect Joe Ross for feeling a little miffed when a December trade sent him from the San Diego Padres organization to the Nationals as part of the trade that brought Wil Myers to San Diego. The 22-year-old Ross, the Padres’ first round pick in 2011, was about to enter his crucial first full season at the Double-A level, which...

Ross, Padres host Cubs in second game of series

Tyson Ross has been one of baseball's best strikeout artists this year, though it's come with a price - lots of walks. It could be feast or famine Wednesday night for the San Diego Padres starter against the visiting Chicago Cubs, who also do a lot of both. Ross (2-3, 3.94 ERA) earned his first victory in six starts Thursday, giving up two runs while striking out six over five-plus...

Series Preview: Chicago Cubs (21-16) at San Diego Padres (19-20)

The Cubs face the Padres for the second (and presumably final) time this year. It’s a west coast roadtrip, one of the few times I’m glad that I don’t live in the greatest time zone. I should be able to catch all of these games, or at least fall asleep on the couch around the eight innings or so. Or drive to see some of them in person Team leaders Current and projected listed...

Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, May 14

Thursday gives us our typical short slate with 22 starters to choose from, only seven of whom rate average or better! It’s slim pickings on a slimmer day. Tyson Ross has had major control issues so far and is running into a fairly hot Washington lineup. I like Ross long term, but in the short term this start concerns me. Brett Anderson at home against the Rockies looks like...

Padres' Tyson Ross throws a lot of sliders

Tyson Ross tends to use his slider…a lot. He thew it 276 more times than any other pitcher last year. Padres pitching coach Darren Balsley doesn’t think he’s over-relying on it though, according to U-T San Diego:“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...
