MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan reports that the Rangers are being aggressive in trying to get a deal done with free agent pitcher Tyson Ross. Sullivan says, “Talks are definitely heating up.”

Ross, 29, was limited to just one start in 2016 due to shoulder issues. He underwent surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome back in October. When he’s healthy, Ross has shown the ability to be a high-quality starter, finishing with a 2.81 ERA over 31 starts in 2014 and a 3.26 ERA over 33 starts in 2015.

The Cubs, Indians, Padres, and Pirates have also been reported as having had interest in Ross.
