Nationals | Joe Ross the odd man out

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 12:06:04 -0700

The Washington Nationals have decided not to use a six-man rotation when SP Stephen Strasburg (neck) returns from the disabled list. SP Joe Ross will lose his rotation spot, although manager Matt Williams has been impressed with his performance thus far. "He's opened eyes. Seriously opened eyes," Williams said.

Fantasy Tip: Ross ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is 2-1 with a 2.66 ERA through his first three major league starts, with 23 strikeouts in 20 1/3 innings. It is not certain if he will be demoted to the minors or moved to the bullpen once Strasburg returns, although the Nats now know they can count on him to step in if another starter gets injured.

Nationals | Joe Ross fans 11

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 19:21:40 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross (2-1) struck out 11 batters in a victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, June 19. He allowed one run, six hits and one walk over 7 1/3 innings in just his third major-league start.

Fantasy Tip: Ross ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has struck out 23 batters in just 20 1/3 innings. His next start will come against the Atlanta Braves, who have scored the fourth-most runs in the National League, so you may want to avoid using Ross next week despite his solid outing Friday.

Nationals | Joe Ross shines

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 06:31:18 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross allowed seven hits over eight innings Saturday, June 13, against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: Ross ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) also walked one batter, but he allowed just two earned runs while piling up eight strikeouts. That's now 12 strikeouts in 13 major league innings for Ross this season, and he'll be a worthy option for his next scheduled start Thursday, June 18, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Nationals | Joe Ross to start Saturday

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 10:21:31 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross will be called up from Class AA Harrisburg to start Saturday, June 6, according to an industry source.

Fantasy Tip: Ross, the brother of San Diego Padres starter Tyson Ross, was 2-2 with a 2.81 and 54 strikeouts for Harrisburg in nine starts (51 1/3 innings) this year. This could just be a spot start against the Chicago Cubs, so his fantasy value moving forward is likely to be non-existent. Choosing him on FantasyScore is an unnecessary risk.
