Padres manager Bud Black said Tyson Ross will rejoin the rotation once his left shoulder is healed.
Ross is obviously healthy enough to pitch, but his left shoulder subluxation leaves him unable to swing a bat, meaning he can only pitch in relief for now. There's no timetable for when he'll be ready to swing again. "We still see him as a starting pitcher," said Black. "But that will be left shoulder related and whether he's physically able to do that. Right now, his strength is improving. In due time, he has to get in a cage."
