Padres Notes: Updates on Tyson Ross, Casey Kelly & Cameron Maybin

The San Diego Padres are off to a slow start, as they are 1-4 to start the season heading in to Sunday's possible sweep in Miami.  On Saturday, manager Bud Black provided some updates on a few key players for the Padres.  Jeff Sanders of U-T San Diego provided the information.

Tyson Ross
Ross has had his next start pushed back a day to Tuesday.  The push back to Tuesday's interleague showdown in Cleveland will split up the Padres' two left handed starters as well as give Ross an extra day to rest after his tiring debut this past Wednesday against the Los Angeles Dodgers.  Ross threw exactly a hundred pitches but only lasted for five innings.  He walked four & allowed five hits while striking out seven.  His WHIP needs a dramatic turnaround.  He'll square off with the Indians' Zach McAllister.

Casey Kelly
Kelly missed all of 2013 due to Tommy John surgery.  He's still considered a premium prospect for the Padres but it appears he's hit another bump in the road.  He was scheduled to pitch a three-inning simulated game but had to be held out due to discomfort in the back of his elbow. The Padres are hoping he can be back on the mound in the next two days.

Cameron Maybin
Maybin is moving along well in his baseball activities after suffering a ruptured left biceps tendon during the Spring.  He picked up a couple of walks in three at-bats in a simulated game.  The recovery time for his injury is two to three months so early May is the likely return time.

Stay tuned to Sports Injury Alert for future updates on all three Padres.
