Rangers' Tyson Ross will face live hitters on Wednesday

Texas Rangers pitcher Tyson Ross (thoracic outlet surgery) will throw a live batting practice session on Wednesday.

What It Means:

It's Ross's first time facing live hitters since undergoing thoracic outlet surgery in October. He has yet to have any setbacks but the Rangers still say he has a ways to go. They expect Ross to join their rotation sometime in the first half of the season.

Our models project Ross to post a 3.92 ERA and 1.33 WHIP with 103 strikeouts across 122.2 innings pitched in 2017.
