2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Ross earned a spot in the Texas bullpen with a solid spring, proceeded to rack up four wins in his first seven appearances and then struggled as the season wore on. His post-break numbers (17.2 innings, 22 hits, 18:12 K:BB, 5.60 ERA) were impacted by a forearm injury that required a stint on the DL, but were also indicative of less-than-stellar peripherals catching up with him. A starter throughout his minor league career, Ross is expected to compete for a rotation spot this spring.
