Dodgers Add Former Padres Pitcher in Front Office Role

The Los Angeles Dodgers added a former Padre to their front office on Saturday. The team hired long-time big league pitcher, Tyson Ross, to their organization as a special assistant, helping with LA’s player development and player performance departments.

Ross has playing experience as a former All-Star himself and now looks to utilize his skills and knowledge in a different capacity within the league. 

Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic shared the news on Twitter:

Ross was initially a second-round pick for the Athletics in 2008 and was then traded to the Padres during the 2012-13 offseason, so his new role in LA won’t be his first time around the NL West. Ross pitched for the Dodgers’ division rival team from 2013-2016 and again in 2018. As a player, he spent time pitching for a number of teams including the Oakland A’s, Texas Rangers, St. Louis Cardinals, and Detroit Tigers.

In San Diego, the former pitcher posted a 3.40 ERA, with 638 strikeouts, and 253 walks across five seasons and 645.1 innings. 

From the experience he has at a major league level, the Dodgers are hoping to utilize Ross to build upon their success and take their talent to the next level.
