Robert Charles Ross, Jr. (born June 24, 1989) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Boston Red Sox of Major League Baseball (MLB). He pitched in MLB for the Texas Rangers from 2012 through 2014.

Professional career[edit]

Ross was drafted by the Texas Rangers in the second round of the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft out of Lexington Christian Academy.[1]

In 2011, he had a 10-5 win–loss record with a 2.34 earned run average with the Class A Myrtle Beach Pelicans and Double-A Frisco Roughriders.

Ross made the Rangers opening day roster out of spring training in 2012.[2] He made his major league debut on April 8, 2012 against the Chicago White Sox. Robbie's first strikeout victim was Paul Konerko. His first major league victory came April 14, 2012 against the Minnesota Twins in relief of Yu Darvish. The very next day, he picked up his second victory, also against the Twins, in relief of Neftalí Feliz.

On January 27, 2015, the Rangers traded Ross to the Boston Red Sox in exchange for pitcher Anthony Ranaudo.[3]
