Robbie Ross P BOS 1 Day

Ross, who was used as a starter and reliever with Texas last season, is being viewed exclusively has a reliever with Boston, the Boston Globe reports.

Ross is in competition for what appears to be one or two spots in the bullpen, depending on how many pitchers manager John Farrell wants to take north. The left-hander has two minor-league options remaining, which may factor into the final roster decision. Other lefty candidates include Tommy Layne and Dana Eveland.

Ross was traded to the Red Sox on Tuesday in exchange for Anthony Ranaudo.

The Red Sox had moved on from the idea of using Ranaudo as a starter, and must prefer Ross over Ranaudo in a relief role. In 145.2 career relief innings, Ross has a 3.27 ERA and 114 strikeouts, so he could be used in the middle innings or as a long man, as he does not have noticeable splits despite being a lefty.

Ross, who struggled in his most recent start, isn't expected to get a start this week according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Ross was terrible against the Mariners in his most recent appearance, and it appears it has cost him a spot in the rotation for at least this week.

Ross (2-6) was slammed for six runs on five hits and three walks in just 1.2 innings Thursday against Seattle.

If last week's strong turn against Houston earned Ross a rotation spot, this one -- his second six-run disaster in three starts -- may mean he's already lost it. If the Rangers do give him another shot, though, he'll line up Wednesday against the Angels.

Ross' strong start last week has earned him another start as Texas shifts to a six-man rotation for the week, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Ross will face Seattle on Friday night in Arlington and figures to be a member of the rotation for the final four weeks, though nothing has been committed to him beyond the start this week.

Ross worked five scoreless innings in his start Saturday against Houston.

Filling in for Mike Mikolas, Ross was lifted after just 72 pitches after having pitched in the minors Thursday. There's no guarantee of a further start for Ross, or at least one on a regular turn, but Saturday's outing won't hurt his chances.

Ross will be recalled to start Saturday's game against Houston, Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas reports.

Ross was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Friday.

Ross was recalled to start Thursday against the Rays, but struggled in his outing, allowing six runs on eight hits over just 4.1 innings. The question now becomes who will take Yu Darvish's next couple turns in the rotation as he recovers from an elbow injury.

Ross surrendered six runs and eight hits in just 4.1 innings against Tampa Bay on Thursday. He walked two batters and struck out three.

A majority of the damage Ross allowed came on a pair of two-run homers, not that he pitched well otherwise. The 25-year old lefty was demoted to Triple-A Round Rock in late June, but was called up to take Yu Darvish's spot in the rotation. Although Ross been mediocre this season, even at Round Rock, he's likely to make at least a couple of starts, as the Rangers don't have many other options.

Ross was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday and will take the hill against the Rays.

The left-hander will be replacing Yu Darvish in the rotation, after elbow inflammation forced the Rangers ace to the DL on Wednesday. Ross supplied an unsightly 4.78 ERA and 1.55 WHIP over 49 innings as a starter with the Rangers earlier this season, making him a fairly unreliable rotation option at this time.
