Arbitration: Tyson Ross makes a deal with the Padres


The San Diego Padres have joined in the arbitration avoidance game, reaching an agreement with starter Tyson Ross.

Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) reported that the Padres and Ross reached a deal that will pay Ross $1.98 million for 2014. In his first full season with San Diego, he earned $500,500.

Tyson proved to be the recipient of bad luck as he posted a fairly solid 3.17 ERA in 2013, but maintained a 3-8 record. Over 16 starts and a career high 125 IP, Ross struck out a career high 119 batters with a career low 1.152 WHIP.
