The A’s have sent 25-year old righty starting pitcher Tyson Ross to AAA. Ross has pitched in 9 games (all starts) for the A’s this year and he is 2-6 with a 5.94 ERA and a 1.83 WHIP. Ross gave up a stunningly bad 65 hits in his first 47 innings this year for the A’s. He has now pitched in 44 games (17 starts) in his first three years with the A’s and he is 6-13 with 1 save, a 4.86 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP. The A’s hope that Ross gets straightened out in AAA, so that he can return to them at some point in 2012.
