Rangers release Tyson Ross

2 Comments

The Rangers announced that they’ve released right-hander Tyson Ross in order to make room on the roster for Willie Calhoun who, as we noted earlier, was called up today.

Ross only pitched in 12 games — 10 starts — this year for Texas, posting an ugly 7.71 ERA and a K/BB ratio of 36/37 in 49 innings. He only pitched in one game for the Padres last year as a result of thoracic outlet syndrome.  He recovered from that, physically speaking, but his pitching has not rebounded. It’s an open question as to whether he’ll pitch again, actually, and he’ll certainly do no better than a minor league invite next spring.
