Ross (shoulder) threw a 23-pitch batting practice session Saturday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Saturday marked Ross' second bullpen session of the week as he continues to work his way back from surgery to correct thoracic outlet syndrome. According to Grant, Ross felt good following Saturday's session. Ross will likely continue to work in live batting practice sessions for the time being with an eye on returning in early May.

Ross (shoulder) said he felt fine after completing Wednesday's bullpen session, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ross threw 20 pitches, all fastballs, in his first bullpen session of the year. His rehab process seems to be on schedule or even a little bit ahead, with recent reports suggesting he could join the Rangers by early May. Once he's available, it's no sure thing Ross will have a spot in the starting rotation, as he only garnered a one-year, $6 million contract in the wake of his injury-decimated 2016 campaign.

Ross (shoulder) could be ready to join the Rangers by early May, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ross is progressing a bit better than expected, as the last report had him targeting late April for a return to game action, which would've made it tough to join the big-league club before mid-May. He'll take a big step Wednesday, throwing a live bullpen session for the first time since having thoracic outlet surgery in October. Coming off a lost 2016 season, the 29-year-old righty had to settle for a one-year, $6 million contract -- giving him no assurance of a spot in the starting rotation.

Ross (shoulder) will throw his first live bullpen session Wednesday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ross has been progressing well from his offseason surgery, and Wednesday's live bullpen session marks another significant milestone in his recovery. He's still unlikely to return to live games prior to late April, but the 29-year-old is making great strides.

Ross (shoulder) had no issues Saturday morning after progressing to throwing from a half mound Friday, the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The next step for Ross will come Monday when he's scheduled to throw 15-20 pitches, all fastballs, in a bullpen session. Ross is behind the Rangers' other pitchers this spring, and it seems likely that he will begin the season on the disabled list while going through the final stages of his recovery from surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome.

Ross (shoulder) is expected to throw off a half mound Friday and a full mound early next week, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ross is making progress in his recovery from offseason surgery to correct thoracic outlet syndrome. However, any fantasy player expecting early-season contributions from the talented righty probably will have to wait at least a month into the season. Stashing him for peanuts is the best play in mixed leagues, though he may cost a bit more in AL-only fantasy games, which increases the risk.

Ross (shoulder) will make 25 throws from 125-135 feet and 15 pitches from flat ground Wednesday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is a good sign for Ross' progression this spring as he makes his way back from offseason surgery. The veteran right-hander had been throwing from 100 feet everyday, so the escalation likely indicates a gain in strength. Ross is still doubtful to return to game action before late April, but his recovery seems to be on the right track.

Ross (shoulder) probably won't be on a mound until mid-March, Evan Grant of Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ross has been steadily progressing in gaining back strength from thoracic outlet syndrome surgery, but it seems he'll start the season behind other Ranger pitchers. It's still unknown when the right-hander will be able to return to game action, but it will likely be in the latter stages of April. With Ross out indefinitely, expect A.J. Griffin and Dillon Gee to compete for the final spot in the rotation.

Ross (shoulder) says he is throwing from 100 feet every day, but is unsure when he will return to the mound, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ross, who signed a one-year deal with the Rangers this offseason, notes he's still gaining back his strength after undergoing a thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in October. There's no timetable at this point, but the veteran right-hander cautions he's trying not to rush the recovery by taking it one week at a time. Ross played just one game for San Diego last season before being shut down.

Ross (shoulder) isn't expected to be ready for Opening Day of the 2017 season, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

There's been little talk as to a potential return for Ross, who underwent thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in October. However, the Rangers have now said that they don't expect him to be healthy for Opening Day, as they're being cautious with the 29-year-old righty. A more specific timeframe for his return should become available after he has the chance to workout at spring training.
