The Call-Up: Joe Ross

Tucker Blair and Mike Gianella

The Nationals dig further into their starting pitching depth with the recently acquired right-hander.

The Situation: The Nationals need a fresh arm with Stephen Strasburg and Doug Fister landing on the disabled list, and Ross' pitching schedule just happens to align with the Nationals' needs. Not only that, but Ross just happened to spin one of his best starts of the year, carving up the Bowie Baysox through seven strong innings.

Background: Selected as the 25th overall pick in a 2011 draft loaded with pitching, the younger brother of Padres' starting pitcher Tyson Ross has begun to grow into the durable innings-eater many envisioned four years ago. His professional career started out slowly, as a shoulder strain in 2012 limited him to just 54 2/3 innings, after making the jump straight to Low-A that April. It's been full steam ahead for the right-hander since then. Last off-season, he was acquired by the Nationals in the trade that sent Steven Souza to the Rays and Wil Myers to the Padres, and Ross continues to be one of the less publicized commodities in that mega deal.

Jeff Moore and Tucker Blair debate the merits of Greg Bird's plate approach and how far it will take him in the big leagues.

One of the great things about the Prospect Team—and scouting in general—is that there are so many talented evaluators out there who see the game in different ways. What we’re going to do here is highlight a player who draws differing opinions, and have an open discussion as to how and why we come to our various conclusions.

Ever since Yankees first baseman Greg Bird was given seven figures as a catcher out of Grandview High School in Aurora, Colorado, the left-handed hitter has drawn conflicting reviews as to just what kind of player he’ll be at the big-league level.
