Any thoughts on Joe Ross starting in the minors and sucking a lot for his first start?

Is he ailing? I can’t find anything about nursing any kind of injury. They want him to solidify his arm slot. Obviously its not the one start I am concerned with but the fact he’s even in the minors. They mention April 22nd as a possible first start. Do people like him, still? I think if I dropped him he’d not get picked up until after his first start back, but I’m not sure I’m guaging him properly..
