Player Profile #91: Tyson Ross | SP | SD

Two things have kept Tyson Ross from reaching top 20 SP status and overnight notoriety: walks and wins. With a rash of aggressive offseason transactions, Padres GM A.J. Preller may have eliminated one of those, and it could help his ace reach the upper echelon of fantasy starters.
