Strengths:
Tyson Ross has the projectability of a top high school pitcher with the pedigree of an established collegiate Friday starter. Ross is 6-foot-5 and gets a lot of leverage with his 92-93 mph fastball. Scouts think he could throw in the mid to upper 90s as he fills out. He also throws a plus slider.

Weaknesses:
Ross has had some command issues.  His hit rate is high, but that is expected to come down in 2008.

The Future:
