Ross Fires Another Quality Start in Minors



    Robbie Ross Jr. is still on the comeback trail for the Texas Rangers.

    The once-elite middle relief pitcher for the Rangers failed miserably in a starting experiment this seaosn before being sent down to Triple-A Round Rock, where he initially struggled, as well.

    But recently, Ross has been hot for Round Rock, and that positive momentum continued over the weekend as he fired a complete-game five-hitter for a win over Triple-A Memphis, the St. Louis Cardinals' Triple-A affiliate.

    It was Ross' fourth straight quality start as he's now compiled a 2.25 ERA in his last 28 innings.

    This season for the Rangers, Ross was 2-4 with a 5.61 ERA in nine starts and nine relief appearances before being sent down to Round Rock. It seemed Ross' days as a starter were finished when he was moved back to the Rangers bullpen before his demotion, but this recent run of starts could suggest otherwise.
