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.

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.

Anthony Ranaudo didn't last long in a loss to the Orioles Tuesday, giving up four runs on six hits over 3 1/3 innings before exiting.

Ranaudo was decent in his first four major league starts, but the Orioles delivered some big blows early on Tuesday. He gave up three home runs among his six hits allowed, accounting for all four runs. It's an issue he's struggled with, even in his good starts -- Ranaudo has now allowed eight home runs over 26 2/3 innings with the big club. The 24-year-old will look for better results Sunday at the Royals.

Anthony Ranaudo lost his first game of the season, giving up three runs in 5 1/3 innings against the Yankees on Wednesday.

Ranaudo wasn't awful, but it would have been difficult to out-pitch Hiroki Kuroda on this evening. Ranaudo gave up six hits and walked a pair while only striking out one batter. The rookie has an ugly 8/10 K/BB ratio with a 4.63 ERA in his first 23 1/3 innings spanning four starts. He'll take on the Orioles at home in his next outing.

Red Sox recalled RHP Anthony Ranaudo from Low-A Greenville.

Ranaudo will rejoin the Boston rotation later this week. He has posted a 4.50 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 7/8 K/BB ratio in 18 innings (three starts) this year for the Sox.

Red Sox optioned RHP Anthony Ranaudo to Low-A Greenville.

Ranaudo has registered a 4.50 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in three starts this season at the major league level. He should be back when rosters expand next week.

Anthony Ranaudo improved to 3-0 on Friday, limiting the Rays to three runs on five hits over his six innings of work.

Ranaudo was staked to an early eight-run lead in this one, and cruised to an easy win. He issued three walks and walked four on the evening, with most of the damage against him coming on a two-run homer by Brandon Guyer in the fifth inning. He’ll carry a 4.50 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 7/8 K/BB ratio into Wednesday’s start against the Yankees in New York.

Red Sox recalled RHP Anthony Ranaudo from Triple-A Pawtucket.

He'll make his third major league start on Friday against the Rays. Ranaudo has allowed six runs while posting a 3/5 K/BB ratio over 12 innings in his first two outings with the big club. He could remain in the rotation for the rest of the season if he pitches well.

Anthony Ranaudo is scheduled to start for the Red Sox on Friday night against the Rays.

Ranaudo allowed four earned runs over six innings earlier this month in a spot start against the Reds and is a risky -- but not terrible -- fantasy play versus Tampa Bay. The 24-year-old right-hander has registered a 2.61 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 111/54 K/BB ratio in 138 innings (24 starts) this season for Triple-A Pawtucket.

Red Sox optioned RHP Anthony Ranaudo to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Ranaudo allowed four runs over six innings Wednesday against the Reds, but Boston was able to pull out the win. The right-hander should be back up next month, either as a member of the starting rotation or bullpen.
Thu, Aug 14, 2014 03:33:00 PM

Anthony Ranaudo was good enough to win Wednesday, allowing four runs over six frames in a 5-4 victory over the Reds.

Ranaudo struck out just one and allowed eight hits -- including a pair of home runs -- but it was enough to come away with his second straight victory. He's expected to be sent back down with Brandon Workman rejoining the rotation next week, but Ranaudo could get some more starts with the big club next month.

Red Sox recalled RHP Anthony Ranaudo from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Ranaudo will make his second-ever major league start on Wednesday versus the Reds. The 24-year-old has registered a promising 2.58 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 104/50 K/BB ratio in 125 2/3 innings this season at Triple-A and is worth streaming in AL-only fantasy leagues.
Tue, Aug 12, 2014 03:45:00 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM on Tuesday that Anthony Ranaudo will be called up from Triple-A Pawtucket to start Wednesday against the Reds.

The Red Sox will skip Brandon Workman's turn in the starting rotation. Ranaudo allowed two runs in six innings against the Yankees in his major league debut back on August 1 and will be worth using in AL-only leagues.
Tue, Aug 12, 2014 01:34:00 PM

Red Sox optioned Anthony Ranaudo to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Ranaudo picked up his first major league win on Friday against the Yankees. With the arrival of Joe Kelly, he was shuffled back to Triple-A, where he had a 2.41 ERA and 12-4 record prior to the spot start.
