Tyson Ross will miss his final start with a strained forearm


Tyson Ross’ breakout season is coming to a premature end, as the Padres announced that he’ll miss his final scheduled start with a slightly strained flexor muscle in his forearm.

In his first full season as a starter Ross finishes with a 2.81 ERA and 195 strikeouts in 196 innings, holding opponents to .230 batting average and 13 homers. He benefited from calling pitcher-friendly Petco Park home, posting a 1.88 ERA in San Diego compared to a 3.79 ERA everywhere else.

His standing could change based on what happens during the final week of the season, but Ross currently ranks seventh in strikeouts, 10th in ERA, and 10th in innings among NL pitchers.
