Tyson Ross P SD 2 Days

Ross (elbow) was able play catch Friday but it's still undetermined if he'll be able to start again this season since he continues to have soreness in his forearm, U-T San Diego reports.

With little time remaining in the season, the Padres may ultimately decide to sit Ross for the rest of the year so they don't risk his long-term future. Until further notice, Ross will be on the shelf while the Padres cautiously make their decision.

A determination about Ross's availability for the remainder of the season likely won't be made until Sunday at the earliest, MLB.com's Corey Brock reports.

Ross is dealing with arm/elbow soreness, and the team will either elect to shut him down for the season or allow him to make one final start. His replacement in the rotation, Robbie Erlin, pitched six innings of one-run ball Thursday, so it certainly wouldn't be surprising if the Padres thought it would be more beneficial to play it safe with Ross and allow Erlin another start before the conclusion of the 2014 season. Owners should continue to monitor Ross's status heading into next week.

The Padres haven't made a decision to shut Ross (arm soreness) down for the season, but manager Bud Black said the next few days will be "critical," MLB.com's Corey Brock reports.

He won't make his scheduled start Thursday, but if his arm starts to feel better after bullpen sessions, there's a chance he could make a start this weekend, which could put him in line for another start next week before the season ends. However, if his arm soreness does not improve, it sounds like there's a chance Ross's 2014 season could be over. Robbie Erlin will make the start Thursday, and Ross's owners should continue to monitor this situation closely.

Manager Bud Black said Ross will have his Thursday start pushed back a few days, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Black said Ross is dealing with a little general soreness in his arm, but that "his bullpen sessions have been quality." Ross had his shortest start of the season Saturday, going just three innings against the Diamondbacks. Robbie Erlin will make Thursday's start in place of Ross.

Ross lasted only three innings, giving up five hits, two walks, and six runs- four earned- while striking out four in a sloppy game against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

It was the All-Star's shortest outing of the season, as Ross allowed all six of his runs in the first two innings. Though Ross wasn't sharp, he didn't get help from his defense, either. The Padres committed two costly errors that led to two unearned runs. Nonetheless, Ross still has a 2.81 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP and 195 strikeouts, fifth best in the National League.

Ross labored through 5.2 innings in Sunday's loss to the Rockies, surrendering three earned runs on seven hits and four walks while racking up seven strikeouts.

Ross was not quite at top form Sunday afternoon, but Colorado's Coors Field often has that effect on pitchers. Though the Padres' All-Star hurler was not terrible in this contest, he needed 116 pitches to get through 5.2 frames and found the zone with just 65 of them. Consider this performance just a minor blip on the radar, as Ross has been one of the NL's top hurlers this season, especially in the second half. Since the break, the 27-year-old righty is now 6-3 over 10 starts while putting together an outstanding 2.29 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 9.3 K/9 across 63 innings.

Ross picked up his 13th win of the season Monday, allowing a run on six hits with two walks and eight strikeouts against the Diamondbacks.

Ross extended his franchise-record streak of quality starts to 14. The right-hander has had poor run support all season. Even though he sports a 2.60 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 184:66 K:BB ratio in 187 innings, his record is only 13-12. Ross will try to keep his streak alive Saturday in Colorado.

Ross (12-12) limited the Brewers to one run over 6.1 innings, compiling six strikeouts against four hits and two walks in the 4-1 win.

With the solid outing, Ross extended his quality-start streak to a club-record 13. He's gone just 6-6 during that stretch, but has supplied a 1.96 ERA and 86 strikeouts. He also helped his cause at the plate Tuesday, doubling and walking in two of his at-bats.

Ross (11-11) took the loss on Friday facing the Cardinals as he gave up three runs on five hits over six innings, while allowing four runners to reach base base via base on balls.

The young hurler has pitched extraordinarily well for the Padres since last season. Ross, who sees his ERA go to 2.70 on the season, has been a pleasant surprise as he has nearly struck out a hitter per inning. In order for Ross to take the next step as a dominant starter, he will need to cut down on the walks.

Ross allowed six hits and two earned runs over six innings in Sunday's road win over Pittsburgh.

Ross walked two batters and struck out three in the winning decision. After coughing up a two-run shot to Gregory Polanco in the first inning, the right-hander settled down and kept Pittsburgh's bats at bay. Ross has been on an amazing run, allowing two or fewer earned runs in 10 straight starts to drop his ERA to 2.63 for the season. He's next scheduled to pitch on Friday in St. Louis.
