Padres Injury Update: Tyson Ross says forearm is fully healed

By on 11/22/2014 06:00:00 AM

The San Diego Padres were competitive and won 77 games this past season despite finishing 30th in several offensive categories, including runs scored. They were lead by a pitching staff that was sixth in the Major Leagues in ERA. One key member of the rotation this past season was Tyson Ross, who was shut down in late September with a flexor strain. The good news is that Ross says his forearm is completely healed.

As reported by Dennis Lin of U-T San Diego, Ross deemed his forearm healthy while at a charity event on Thursday. At the time of his injury in late September, it appeared Ross would need only a couple of weeks recovery time. Although healing quite a bit slower than anticipated, Ross feels fine.
"My arm's feeling great. Just a little bit of time and rest healed it up nicely. I'm back on schedule with my training, just getting ready for spring."
Ross could draw lots of interest from other teams, but the Padres would likely want a lot in return for him. Ross loves the community and has made it clear that he wants to remain in San Diego.
"I love San Diego. It's been really good for my career. I would love to continue playing here. Obviously there's change coming about (this offseason), but we have a couple really good pieces in place already."
Ross, a five-year Major League veteran, compiled a record of 13-14 with a 2.81 ERA in 31 starts this past season. In 195 2/3 innings, he allowed only 165 hits, walked 72 and struck out 195. Ross has pitched for the A's and Padres and has a career record of 22-40 with a 3.70 ERA.
