Padres | Tyson Ross headed back to rotation

San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross (shoulder), who missed 14 games with a subluxation of his left shoulder, will continue pitching out of the bullpen until he's healthy enough to swing a bat again. Once he can, he'll jump back into the starting rotation. "We still see him as a starting pitcher," said manager Bud Black. "But that will be left shoulder-related and whether he's physically able to do that. Right now, his strength is improving. In due time, he has to get in a cage."

Fantasy Tip: Ross has struggled with command in his career, but late last season he showed ground-ball rates that gave optimism for his future. A move to SD made him even more intriguing. Clayton Richard (illness) will return to the rotation soon, so it's unknown who exactly Ross would replace in the starting five when he's healthy. Jason Marquis or Eric Stults might be in jeopardy if they aren't pitching well by then.
