Joe Ross signs minors deal with Giants

The San Francisco Giants have signed right-handed pitcher Joe Ross to a minor-league contract.

Fantasy Impact

As Slusser notes in her tweet, it's a homecoming for the Oakland native. Ross didn't appear in the big leagues in 2022 due to Tommy John surgery, making just one appearance for the Nationals' Double-A team in Harrisburg. A veteran of 98 career MLB appearances, Ross owns a 4.26 ERA in that time alongside a 21.1% K%. Ross can potentially get back onto the fantasy radar with renewed health in 2023.

Joe Ross set back 6-8 weeks after surgery to remove bone spur from elbow

Joe Ross had surgery on his throwing elbow to remove a bone spur on March 7th. His prep for the season is set back six-to-eight weeks.

Fantasy Impact

Ross was shut down in August last year after partially tearing his UCL, but he was able to avoid a second Tommy John surgery. The news of surgery to remove a bone spur in his elbow, however, dampens whatever meager enthusiasm fantasy managers might have had. Ross had a respectable 4.17 ERA and 1.22 WHIP last year, but his setback should effectively take him off draft boards this year. The injury makes the possibility of both Josh Rogers and Paolo Espino ending up in the rotation far more likely.

Joe Ross (forearm) placed on the 10-day IL, could need Tommy John

The Washington Nationals placed right-hander Joe Ross (forearm) on the 10-day injured list Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Ross was dealing with forearm tightness after his long relief appearance last Wednesday against the Mets. He underwent an MRI on Sunday, which revealed a partial tear of the UCL. The right-hander will undergo further evaluation before determining if Tommy John surgery is a possibility. No final decision has been made. Ross’ season is most likely over, and he will finish 2021 with a (5-9) record along with a 4.17 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 109 strikeouts over 108 innings.

Joe Ross follows an opener and throws five innings

Joe Ross followed an opener and threw five innings. Ross allowed six hits, four earned runs, and one walk with two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

With the game suspended from Tuesday, it's hard to have any strong takeaways from this game. However, Ross's slider performed well with a 50% whiff rate and 46% CSW% on 28 sliders thrown.

Joe Ross tosses a quality start against the Phillies

Joe Ross tossed a quality start against the Phillies yet took the no-decision. Ross allowed five hits, three earned runs, and two walks with seven strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact

Ross finished with 35% CSW% overall on 84 pitches with a low 24% whiff rate. That means Ross relied heavily on called strikes, especially with the sinker. He is still in the streaming category in most matchups in 15-team leagues.
