The Tyson Ross Experiment is Failing

Progressive Field hosted a barnburner in Cleveland last night and with Tyson Ross (9.35 ERA) taking the mound this evening, Game 2 could be just as raucous. The recently rehabilitated Ranger was knocked around by the Blue Jays in his second start since coming off a long DL stint and he’ll more than likely be on a short leash against the Tribe today.

  • Tyson Ross has given up 16 earned runs in his last 14 innings pitched in the majors.
  • The Rangers are 0-4 SU and 1-3 on the runline in their last 4 games against the Indians.
  • Last night’s OVER was just the 2nd in the Indians’ last 10 games.

The past two years have been frustrating ones for the now 30-year-old Ross and the two teams he’s played for. He’s made just three starts since Opening Day of the 2016 season and if he posts yet another bad result, the pressure on his once-promising career could become too much to keep him in the big leagues.

He’ll match up with Mike Clevinger (3-3, 3.86 ERA) in the contest and Ross could be in over his head. The Indians’ 26-year-old righty has been solid since coming back from a trip to Triple-A to work on his mechanics and he should be in line for another win if the Tribe can keep slugging like they did on Monday.

The 15 runs the Indians scored in Game 1 were the most they’ve scored in a game this season but the runline win was just their 12th of the season on home turf. You’ll have to lay some chalk to get the Indians moneyline today so you may want to consider a runline wager if you’re confident that Ross will once again be a dumpster fire.
