Ross was released by the Rangers on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Texas took a low-risk gamble when they signed Ross this past offseason, and it clearly didn't work out. He notched a 7.71 ERA with 36 strikeouts and 37 walks in 49 innings, primarily as a starter. It's possible that he lands a non-roster invite to spring training with another team in 2018.

Ross was lit up for four runs on four hits and two walks across 2.1 innings of relief in Sunday's 16-7 loss to the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Since being ousted from the rotation following his Aug. 22 start, Ross has made two appearances out of the bullpen, and both have been disastrous. He's served up six runs in three innings of relief while striking out just one batter, offering the Rangers little evidence that he'll warrant usage outside of mop-up situations. Ross, who is set to become a free agent this offseason, doesn't seem likely to be retained by the Rangers, and may have to settle for a minor-league contract in light of his extensive injury history and the horrid 7.71 ERA and 1.84 WHIP over 49 innings he's posted in 2017.

The Rangers will move the struggling Ross to the bullpen, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ross has been awful this season, as he owns a 7.04 ERA and 1.76 WHIP and has completed the sixth inning just once in 10 starts. He will be replaced in the rotation by Nick Martinez, and the Rangers will hope Ross can rediscover even the slightest bit of his old form in the bullpen.

The Rangers are still undecided on whether Ross will make his next scheduled start against the A's on Sunday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ross has struggled mightily in 10 starts this season, registering just one quality start and compiling a 7.04 ERA and 35:35 K:BB. The 30-year-old has had trouble pitching deep into games -- he's failed to make it out of the fourth inning in three of his last five starts -- so the Rangers could choose to send out an alternate starter with hopes of preserving their bullpen. The decision will likely come Thursday, when Nick Martinez, one of Ross's potential replacements, is scheduled to pitch for Triple-A Round Rock. Austin Bibens-Dirkx is the other option to start if Ross is skipped.

Ross (3-3) took the loss in the Rangers' 10-1 defeat Tuesday against the Angels, giving up three runs on seven hits and four walks over 3.2 innings. He struck out four batters in the outing.

EDGE Analysis

Finding the strike zone was once again an issue for the the right-hander, who needed 98 pitches just to record 11 outs. Ross has now handed out at least four free passes in four consecutive outings and maintains an unpalatable 35:35 K:BB over 46 innings on the campaign. With the 30-year-old set to become a free agent this winter and showing few signs that he'll be able to recapture the strong form he showed with the Padres prior to undergoing thoracic outlet syndrome surgery last October, the Rangers could elect to pull Ross from the rotation in favor of another starting option who can work deeper into games more consistently.

Ross escaped with a no-decision after allowing five runs (three earned) on five hits with six walks and two strikeouts over 4.1 innings Thursday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Believe it or not, this outing actually slightly lowered Ross' season ERA from 7.11 to 7.02. Control continues to be a major issue for the right-hander, who sports a horrid 31:31 K:BB in 42.1 innings. Once considered among the league's best young starters with the Padres, the 30-year-old Ross has seen injuries take a significant toll on his effectiveness over the past two years. Don't expect much in his next start Tuesday against the Angels in Los Angeles.

Ross (3-2) went 5.2 innings, giving up three runs, walking five and striking out two in a winning effort Saturday against the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Ross, who had been out since July 24 with a blister on his finger, was pulled one out short of a quality start but still managed to secure the win as the Rangers backed him up with plenty of run support. Owners shouldn't expect much out of Ross though. Even with this performance, his ERA still sits above seven as he tries to work his way back to his 2014 season when he had an ERA of 2.81 with the Padres.

Ross (finger) was activated from the disabled list and will start Saturday against the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander will return to oppose Mike Fiers after spending two and a half weeks on the DL with a blister issue. Ross threw 96 pitches during a rehab start last weekend with Triple-A Fresno, so it seems unlikely that he will face any real restrictions in his return, but Ross has struggled mightily in seven starts this year and will need to show something before he's back in the conversation as an option in standard mixed leagues.

Ross (finger) will start against the Astros on Saturday, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ross is set to return for the first time since July 23 after spending the last couple weeks on the disabled list due to a blister on his right index finger. He was able to toss a rehab outing with Double-A Frisco on Saturday, tossing a gem -- one earned run off four hits while striking out eight over seven innings -- and shaking off a little rust before rejoining the Texas rotation. Ross will make his first appearance against the Astros this season, and is going to try and last past the sixth inning for the first time this season when he toes the rubber this weekend.

Ross (finger) isn't in line to come off the 10-day disabled list to start for the Rangers until at least Aug. 14 against the Tigers, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After tossing seven innings and conceding just one run while striking out eight batters Saturday in his second rehab start with Double-A Frisco, Ross certainly seemed to show that the blister on his right index finger that landed him on the DL on July 24 is no longer an issue. However, with the Rangers playing only five games this week, manager Jeff Banister is planning to utilize a four-man rotation, which will temporarily keep Ross out of the mix. Ross is expected to reclaim a spot on the starting staff the following week, most likely replacing Nick Martinez, who served up a combined 12 runs in 9.1 innings during his most recent starts Aug. 1 and Aug. 6.
