RHP Joe Ross is expected to be No.5 starter of the Nationals’ rotation in 2021.
Ross signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Nationals this offseason. He opted out of the 2020 campaign, but will return in 2021 as the Washington’s No. 5 starter. Ross posted a 5.48 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and a 57:33 K:BB over 64 innings in 2019. The right-hander is mainly an option in deep-league/NL formats only.
Joe Ross has agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Nationals to avoid arbitration, per Mark Feinsand. He was arbitration-eligible for the third time in his career.
Ross opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns but will compete for a 2021 starting rotation spot this spring. The 27-year old holds a career 4.29 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and a 294:107 K/BB ratio over 335 1/3 innings, all with the Nationals.

Ross is the second player to reportedly opt out this afternoon, joining Mike Leake of the Diamondbacks. One would figure there will be several others following their lead in the coming days. However, this likely won’t shake up the fantasy world until a star player makes the same decision. Ross likely would’ve been Washington’s fifth starter this summer.
Nationals pitcher Joe Ross allowed two earned runs on three hits and three walks while striking out one over 2 1/3 innings against the Marlins on Saturday.
Ross is having a strong Spring but is in a tight battle with Austin Voth and Erick Fedde for the fifth spot in the Washington rotation. Ross and Voth appear to have the inside track for that fifth spot, but the Nationals will likely take the entirety of Spring Training to make their decision.
Nationals starter Joe Ross allowed no earned runs on one hit, and one walk while striking out two over three innings in Monday's matchup against the Miami Marlins.
Ross bounced between the bullpen, the starting rotation, and the minor leagues last season, and he did not have much sustained success. He has a chance to claim a spot in the Washington starting rotation this Spring.
