Robbie Ross P TEX 1 Day

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.

Miles Mikolas was scratched from the start due to shoulder fatigue. Working mostly as a starter at Triple-A Round Rock, Ross has a 43:16 K:BB over 60.1 innings in the minors this season.

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.

Ross will start Thursday against the Rays, Anthony Andro of FOX Sports Southwest reports.

Elbow inflammation has pushed ace Yu Darvish to the DL, and Ross will be up to take his turn Thursday. Ross has struggled mightily in 18 appearances (nine starts) with the big club this season (5.61 ERA, 1.65 WHIP), but the Rangers don't have many alternatives should Ross continue to struggle, so he'll likely stick in the rotation.

Rangers optioned LHP Robbie Ross to Triple-A Round Rock.

It's been a rough month for Ross, as he was removed from the rotation in late May and is now off the roster entirely. The left-hander has an ugly 5.61 ERA and 1.66 WHIP over 61 innings this season. Aaron Poreda has taken his spot in the Rangers' bullpen.

Robbie Ross has been removed from Texas' rotation.

Ross registered an ugly 4.78 ERA, 1.55 WHIP, and 34/16 K/BB ratio in nine starts (49 innings) for Texas. He is presumably being shifted to a long relief role.

Robbie Ross tossed 4 1/3 innings of one-run ball in a no-decision Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Ross walked four, elevating his pitch count early. He has a rough 4.78 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 49 innings this season, and would be in danger of losing his rotation spot if the Rangers' pitching staff were in better health. The left-hander still could get the boot at some point.

Robbie Ross could be removed from the Rangers' rotation in favor of Joe Saunders (ankle).

The Rangers are skipping Ross' next start, and although they're not saying he's being removed from the rotation, the speculation is that he could ultimately be bumped in favor of Saunders. Saunders is making a rehab start with Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday, possibly putting him in line to rejoin the Rangers' rotation on May 20. Ross has a 7.76 ERA in his last five starts.
