Anthony Ranaudo gave up six earned runs in just 1 2/3 innings Wednesday in the Rangers' loss to the Angels.

It was a disastrous outing for Ranaudo, who was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday morning to start in place of the injured Derek Holland. The 25-year-old right-hander probably won't get another turn in the Rangers' rotation anytime soon. If he does, he should obviously be avoided for fantasy purposes.

Rangers recalled RHP Anthony Ranaudo from Triple-A Round Rock.

He'll get the start Wednesday against the Angels, filling in for the injured Derek Holland (shoulder). Ranaudo will have a chance to stick in the rotation for a while if he pitches well, but we're not optimistic.
Apr 15 - 8:25 AM

Anthony Ranaudo will be called up to start for the Rangers on Wednesday against the Angels.

The 25-year-old posted a 4.81 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and 15/16 K/BB ratio in 39 1/3 innings (seven starts) last season for the Red Sox. Ranaudo is not a good fantasy bet Wednesday against a potent Angels offense.
Apr 14 - 4:21 PM

Rangers optioned RHP Anthony Ranaudo to Triple-A Round Rock.

Ranaudo was a candidate for the Rangers rotation, but a 5.02 ERA in spring dashed those chances. The 25-year-old will serve as rotation depth at Triple-A and should see the majors at some point this season.
Mar 28 - 4:27 PM

Anthony Ranaudo pitched well in Friday's Cactus League start against the Athletics, allowing two runs on five hits over his six innings of work.

The young right-hander struck out three and didn't issue a walk in the ballgame. He's keeping hope alive to secure one of the final spots in the Opening Day rotation, despite holding a 5.02 ERA in Cactus League play.
Mar 27 - 8:52 PM

Anthony Ranaudo yielded four runs (three earned) in four innings against the Dodgers in an exhibition start on Saturday.

Ranaudo was making his first start in nine days as he had been dealing with some minor elbow soreness. The Dodgers had no problems, socking three home runs against the right-hander. Overall, he allowed six hits and two walks while striking out two. Elbow aside, Ranaudo has not had a good spring so far and could be on the outside looking in with regards to a spot in the Rangers' starting rotation.

Anthony Ranaudo (elbow) will pitch in a minor league game on Monday.

Ranaudo was removed from his last Cactus League appearance due to some minor elbow soreness, but he played catch after the game and got through a 35-pitch bullpen session on Saturday with no issues. The young right-hander is competing for a spot in the Rangers' rotation.
Mar 15 - 12:22 PM

Anthony Ranaudo gave up three runs in 2 1/3 innings in Thursday's start against the White Sox.

Ranaudo had to leave the start with one out in the third inning due to discomfort in his right elbow. All three runs came in the second inning on three singles and a double. As Ranaudo was able to throw on a back field following the start, the injury doesn't appear to be serious at the moment and he could soon resume his quest to earn the No. 5 spot in the Rangers' rotation.
Mar 12 - 7:00 PM

Anthony Ranaudo was able to throw on a back field after leaving Thursday's outing with right elbow discomfort.

It's obviously a concern anytime the elbow is involved, but it appears the Rangers dodged a bullet here. With the other injuries they've had to their starters, they certainly deserved a break. Acquired from the Red Sox via trade this offseason, Ranaudo is competing for a spot in Texas' rotation.
Mar 12 - 6:24 PM

Anthony Ranaudo left Thursday's Cactus League start due to arm discomfort.

Ranaudo was forced to exit Thursday's start in the third inning. "Arm discomfort" is a vague description, so we'll have to wait to get more clarity about his status. However, the injury is another wrench in the Rangers' rotation plans.
Mar 12 - 5:02 PM

Anthony Ranaudo left Thursday's Cactus League start against the White Sox with an apparent injury.

Because the Rangers really need another injury. Ranaudo, who is now a candidate for the fifth starter job, allowed three runs on four hits over 2 1/3 innings before exiting. The Rangers should provide an update on his status shortly.
Mar 12 - 4:56 PM

Rangers acquired RHP Anthony Ranaudo from the Red Sox in exchange for LHP Robbie Ross.

A former sandwich round pick, Ranaudo has posted a sub-3.00 ERA in the minors each of the last two seasons but struggled mightily with a 4.81 ERA and 15/16 K/BB ratio over 39 1/3 innings in the majors. He has big velocity, but the righty has command issues and might be destined for the bullpen over the long haul. For now, the Rangers could give him a shot to compete for a rotation spot.
Jan 27 - 6:40 PM

Anthony Ranaudo won in his final start of the season, yielding two runs over seven innings as the Red Sox trampled the Rays on Wednesday.

Ranaudo scattered six hits and a walk while striking out two, ending his 2014 season on a high note. He made seven starts, going 4-3 with a 4.81 ERA, a 1.48 WHIP, and a 15/16 K/BB ratio. Ranaudo will most likely be in the running for a spot at the back of the Red Sox rotation in spring training next year.

Anthony Ranaudo took his third loss of the season on Tuesday, allowing three runs in 5 2/3 innings against the Pirates.

All three runs came on two mistakes: a two-run homer to Russell Martin in the second inning, and a solo homer to Starling Marte in the sixth. All in all, not a terrible outing, as he gave up four hits and walked three while striking out three. The rookie sports a 5.29 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and a 13/15 K/BB ratio. Ranaudo will take on the AL East champion Orioles on Sunday at Camden Yards next.
