Dallas Braden may or may not be making his scheduled start tonight.

The A's have called up right-hander Tyson Ross, according to the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser (via Twitter), but his exact role is unclear at this point.

Slusser says the team rarely announces player moves until the player actually reports to the team. The A's are in Toronto for the second game of a three-game series.

Braden is scheduled to start opposite Jesse Litsch. Slusser tweets she's heard Braden is fine, while others have reported Braden has a neck injury.
