Profile: 2016 was a lost year for Tyson Ross. Joe's older brother entered the season as the Padres' ace -- coming off two straight years in which he struck out over 25% of the batters he faced -- but was only able to make one start before running into issues with shoulder inflammation. What started as a short DL trip in April grew longer and more concerning; Ross was finally ruled out for the year in September, underwent thoracic outlet surgery in October, and was ultimately non-tendered by the Padres. Ross signed a pillow contract with the Rangers in January, where he'll likely slot behind Darvish and Hamels in the rotation... once he's fully recovered, which isn't likely until late April at the earliest. When healthy, though, Ross is an underrated starter, with a devastating slider that generates strikeouts and grounders in droves, though the lack of a true third pitch is still something of a concern. Tyson Ross will likely be one of the riskier pitchers on draft day; he could have SP2 upside if he's healthy, but unless he makes a dramatic comeback you'll want to wait a good deal longer than that to pick him. (Brice Russ)

The Quick Opinion: Ross lost virtually all of 2016 to shoulder problems and will enter 2017 recovering from thoracic outlet surgery. Ross should probably be picked as a DL stash or bench pitcher in most leagues, but if he comes back fully recovered, he could be one of your team's better starters.
