Ross was excellent against in Sunday's start against the Rangers, as he struck out six in 6.2 shutout innings to earn his sixth win of the season.

After throwing just two innings in his previous outing because of a rain delay, Ross looked fresh on Sunday and limited the Rangers offense to just two extra-base hits. The big righty has lowered his ERA all the way to 3.34 after a slow start to the season and is looking more and more like the 2014 All-Star, although he will need to improve on his 55 walks through 110.1 innings. Ross' next start will come Saturday against the Rockies.

Ross went just two innings Tuesday against the Pirates, as he did not come back out to pitch following a one-hour, 42-minute rain delay.

The right-hander allowed two hits and struck out one over two scoreless innings before the rain hit. Pirates starter Francisco Liriano returned after the delay, but interim manager Pat Murphy did not allow Ross to do the same, even though Ross pitched four innings after an even longer delay back on May 14. Barring something unforeseen, Ross won't start again until after the All-Star break.

Ross struck out six and gave up three runs, four hits, and five walks in six innings Thursday against the Cardinals.

Ross hit his first career homer to the opposite field in right in the fifth to give the Padres a 3-1 lead, but the 28-year-old righty gave up two runs in the bottom of the fifth that tied the game at three runs apiece. Thursday's no-decision broke Ross's two-game winning streak, and he'll look to start a new streak in his next scheduled start Tuesday at Pittsburgh.

Ross (5-7) was effectively wild Friday, walking five batters while allowing just two runs on two hits over six innings in a 4-2 win against the Diamondbacks.

This is the second five-walk outing in the lat three for the 28-year-old hurler. Ross has battled control issues throughout his career, and this season in particular, with an excessive 48 walks in 95.2 innings. However, his strikeout total (104 now) is also impressive. If Ross can find some better control, he could morph back into the borderline-elite fantasy option we saw last year, but he remains a work in progress. His next start comes in St. Louis on Thursday.

Ross (4-7) pitched a complete-game gem in Arizona on Saturday, surrendering just one run on four hits and a walk while whiffing nine.

In the midst of an inconsistent season and facing one of baseball's top offenses, Ross didn't look like a great fantasy play Saturday, but he delivered his finest outing of the year. If you take out the bad BABIP luck he's had this year -- .352, 40 points above his career norm -- Ross has been his typically strong self, with the caveat that he's walked too many batters. He'll have a chance to further normalize his ERA in a rematch with the Diamondbacks at home in pitcher-friendly Petco Park on Friday.

Ross allowed four runs on seven hits and five walks in a loss Monday against Oakland to fall to 3-7. He struck out six.

Ross's control was entirely absent as he tied his season high in walks. He has walked fewer than three batters just four times in 14 starts this year. He's still a strikeout machine (89 in 80.2 innings) but won't return to his Cy Young form unless he can dial in his control again. His ERA is 4.02.

Ross (3-6) allowed three runs on nine hits and two walks in six innings Wednesday against the Braves. He struck out five.

In his 13 starts this season, Ross has allowed three or fewer runs in 12 of them. However, he's only had two games in which he made it through the seventh inning. Ross has a respectable 3.81 ERA, but he's had trouble this season keeping batters off the bases, as his 1.53 WHIP shows. The nine hits he allowed Wednesday was the second most he's allowed this season. Ross will look to bounce back in his next start Monday against Oakland.

Ross allowed two runs on five hits, walking three and striking out seven over five innings of a 6-2 win against the Reds on Friday night.

Ross (3-5, 3.75 ERA) has managed to allow three or fewer runs in 11 of 12 starts, but spotty command and high pitch counts continue to hobble his overall production. In this one he needed 89 pitches (59 for strikes) to cover five innings and that has been the overriding story of his season. He has the tools to be a dominant arm when he is locating his pitches, so fantasy owners probably want to be patient and hope for more efficient outings in the near future.

Ross (2-5) was stuck with a loss Saturday after allowing three runs (two earned) in six innings against the visiting Pirates. He gave up seven hits, walked two and struck out two.

After striking out at least five batters in nine consecutive starts, Ross didn't miss many Pittsburgh bats in this one. It's been a mediocre start to the season for the 28-year-old righty, but it's well worth noting that he's been very successful at limiting the damage against him anyway, as Ross has held the opposition to three or fewer runs in 10 of his 11 starts.

Ross didn't factor into the decision in Monday's loss to the Angels after giving up three runs (two earned) on 10 hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out seven batters in the outing.

Ross was rolling in the early going, whiffing four of the first five batters he faced until things began to unravel. It looked like the game would get away from him in the fifth inning when the Angels put runners on second and third with no outs, but Ross was able to limit the damage to one run and finish off his night on a high note. The right-hander, who is 2-4 with a 3.84 ERA over his 10 starts this season, will face the Pirates at Petco Park in his next turn Saturday.
