Ross (1-1) coughed up seven runs on seven hits and a walk over three innings while striking out two in Wednesday's 7-5 loss to the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Toronto sent nine men to the plate in a six-run first inning, putting Ross and the Rangers in a hole they couldn't recover from. The veteran righty has now produced one decent start and one ugly one since coming off the DL, and he'll be a risky play in his next outing Tuesday on the road in Cleveland.

Ross (1-0) gave up two runs on two hits and three walks while striking out five over 5.2 innings in Friday's 10-4 win over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

He was pulled one out shy of a quality start after throwing 95 pitches (57 strikes), but it was still a solid Rangers debut for Ross after spending the first two-plus months of the season recovering from offseason surgery to correct thoracic outlet syndrome. The 30-year-old will make his next start Wednesday at home against the Blue Jays.

Ross (shoulder) was activated from the disabled list in advance of Friday's start against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Ross underwent surgery to treat his thoracic outlet syndrome back in October, but after months of rehab, he'll finally get the chance to make his season debut. The embattled right-hander will make his inaugural appearance opposite lefty James Paxton in Arlington. To make room for him on the 40-man roster, Dillon Gee was designated for assignment.

Rangers manager Jeff Banister confirmed that Ross (shoulder) would come off the 60-day disabled list to start Friday against the Mariners, Richard Dean of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

As Ross himself suggested earlier in the week, he'll be cleared to make his team debut in the opener of a seven-game homestand following four uneven rehab starts at Triple-A Round Rock, during which he compiled a 7.71 ERA and 1.87 WHIP over 18.2 innings. It will mark the right-hander's first outing in the majors since Opening Day of 2016, after he succumbed to right shoulder soreness following that outing that was ultimately diagnosed as thoracic outlet syndrome, which required a surgical procedure in October. The upside is high with Ross, who submitted sub-3.30 ERAs while making at least 30 starts from 2013 through 2015, but his health woes over the last two years coupled with his rough showing during the rehab assignment should prompt fantasy players to tread carefully with him.

Ross (shoulder) plans to make his season debut Friday against the Mariners, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Jeff Banister emphasized that this is the tentative plan, but it seems like all systems are go for Ross to return to the Rangers' rotation. This would likely bump Yu Darvish and Martin Perez to Saturday and Sunday, although the weekend rotation could be mixed around if Ross needs an extra day or so before a full return to the fray.

Rangers manager Jeff Banister said that he expects Ross (shoulder) to make his next start with the big club, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Rangers have yet to formalize their rotation plans for the upcoming week, but it's expected that Ross will be penciled in for his team debut either Saturday or Sunday against the Mariners. Ross, who is returning from surgery last October to address Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, didn't inspire much confidence in his abilities during his four-start rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock, compiling a 7.71 ERA and 11:11 K:BB over 18.2 innings. The 30-year-old said he was pleased with the way he raised his strike percentage during his most recent rehab start, according to Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News, so the Rangers will see if Ross can translate that into better results in his return to the big leagues.

Ross (shoulder) will make his next rehab start Friday with Triple-A Round Rock, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Rangers had previously hoped to have Ross rejoin the rotation this week, but he'll instead be ticketed for a fourth rehab start at Triple-A after showing wayward control in his most recent two outings. If Ross is able to limit the walks Friday and work deep into the contest, it could be enough to convince the Rangers to activate him next weekend for his first MLB start since April 4, 2016.

Contrary to prior reports, Ross (shoulder) will make one more rehab start prior to joining the Rangers' rotation, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ross was originally thought to be on pace to rejoin the rotation this weekend in Washington, but this new development likely pushes his first MLB start of the season back to later next week. If everything goes as planned, he could rejoin the rotation when the Rangers return home to face the Mariners next weekend, but more information on that front should come forth after he makes his next (and final) rehab start.

Ross (shoulder) is on track to come off the 60-day disabled list and make a start during the Rangers' three-game series with the Nationals in Washington next weekend, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

After looking dominant in his first rehab start with Triple-A Round Rock on May 23, Ross was roughed up in his subsequent two outings to finish the assignment with a 5.70 ERA and 10:9 K:BB over 13.2 innings. So long as Ross feels fine physically over the next few days, the Rangers will likely be willing to overlook his poor results in the minors and bring him off the DL for his team debut. With manager Jeff Banister anointing Dillon Gee as the team's new fifth starter this week, Ross would end up pilfering a rotation spot from both Nick Martinez and Austin Bibens-Dirkx, who had both started games during the previous week.

Ross (shoulder) will make his next rehab start Saturday with Triple-A Round Rock

EDGE Analysis

The Rangers indicated Tuesday that Ross would require a third rehab start with Round Rock after he was lit up for six runs in 3.1 innings during his most recent outing Monday, and now the team has officially set a date for the right-hander. If Ross is able to exhibit improved control and his shoulder checks out fine after Saturday's outing, he'll likely be activated from the 10-day disabled list ahead of the Rangers' series next weekend against the Nationals. It's likely that Ross would take the rotation spot of Austin Bibens-Dirkx, who made a spot start for the injured A.J. Griffin (side) on Wednesday.
