Ross (shoulder) isn't expected to be ready for Opening Day of the 2017 season, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

There's been little talk as to a potential return for Ross, who underwent thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in October. However, the Rangers have now said that they don't expect him to be healthy for Opening Day, as they're being cautious with the 29-year-old righty. A more specific timeframe for his return should become available after he has the chance to workout at spring training.

Ross (shoulder) signed a one-year, $6 million contract with the Rangers on Friday, Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan reports.

EDGE Analysis

He can earn more than $6 million via performance bonuses. The risk surrounding Ross's injured shoulder was enough for the Padres to non-tender him in Decmeber, rather than pay him close to $9 million in arbitration. That said, Ross is pretty effective when healthy, owning a career 22.4 percent strikeout rate and 3.64 ERA. If he enters camp healthy, he will compete with A.J. Griffin and Andrew Cashner for the final two rotation spots. He is worth a late-round flyer in deeper leagues.

The Pirates are among the teams that have checked in on Ross (shoulder) since he was non-tendered by the Padres last week, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ross had surgery in October to remove a rib as a method of treating thoracic outlet syndrome, so his availability for the start of spring training, and subsequently Opening Day, is in question. Estimates pegged Ross as a likely $9 million pitcher if he had received a contract from the Padres, so it's likely that he'll be seeking a one-year deal in a similar range to prove that he's healthy with the hope of cashing in as a free agent after he logs quality innings in 2017.

Ross was non-tendered by the Padres on Friday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Non-tendering Ross is a shocker from the Padres, who went from starting him on Opening Day to releasing him to free agency in the span of 2016. Between 2013 and 2015, Ross threw an average of 172 innings with a 3.07 ERA and 9.2 strikeouts per nine innings, but the shoulder woes that cost him nearly his entire 2016 season apparently made him not worth the $9 million price tag approximated by A.J. Cassavell of MLB.com. Ross underwent thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in October and is still recovering, but he is nearly certain to be picked up by a team needing rotation depth and accepting of his injury risk.

Ross underwent thoracic outlet syndrome surgery Thursday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Part of Ross's surgery included the removal of rib to help alleviate the pain that he'd been experiencing. At this point in time, it's entirely possible that he could be ready to return by the start of the 2017 campaign, but more information should be available as his rehab gets underway.

Ross is set to undergo surgery on his shoulder Thursday for thoracic outlet syndrome, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. The procedure carries with it a 4-to-6 month timetable.

EDGE Analysis

Ross still has a chance to be ready for the tart of spring training, but that would require him being ready toward the early end of the timetable. The issue cost him a large chunk of the season, holding Ross to just one start in 2016. If all goes well with his rehab, Ross should be good to go by the time the regular season rolls around in 2017.

Ross has received multiple medical options and has undergone additional tests on his right shoulder, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

According to the report, surgery is on the table. This is a troubling development as Ross has missed nearly all of this year and a procedure on the shoulder could very well threaten his availability for the start of next season. A return in 2016 was just recently ruled out officially but the team was not planning on shutting Ross down entirely. Surgery was initially deemed unnecessary in May but Ross has experienced several setbacks in his recovery in the months since.

Ross (shoulder) is not expected to return this season, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Padres had been leaving the door open for Ross to possibly pitch before the end of the 2016 campaign, but it seems that door is now shut, as the team simply doesn't want to force the issue. While Ross will not be shut down from throwing entirely it does sound like he will dial back the intensity and slowly rebuild strength with an eye toward 2017.

Ross (shoulder) said he felt fine after Friday's bullpen session and he plans to throw another bullpen in the next few days, the San Diego Union-Tribune's Jeff Sanders reports.

EDGE Analysis

He also threw from 90 feet Saturday, so things seem to be slowly progressing for Ross. It is unclear if he will make it back to the big league rotation this year, but the next step in his recovery should become clear after his next bullpen session early next week.

Ross was moved to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The move to put Ross on the 60-day DL was entirely procedural, as he's eligible to return at anytime. Ross is currently on a rehab assignment at High-A Lake Elsinore, where he's pitched in one game. In said outing, he allowed four runs off three hits and two walks in just 0.2 innings.
