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.
Aug 13 - 3:55 PM

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.
Aug 12 - 3:45 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.
Aug 12 - 1:34 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.
Aug 2 - 5:55 PM

Anthony Ranaudo picked up his first major league win on Friday, allowing two runs in six innings against the Yankees.

Not only was it his first major league win, it was his first major league start, and it came against the Yankees no less. He walked four and recorded two strikeouts. Carlos Beltran accounted for both runs against Ranaudo, with a solo home run in the fourth and RBI single in the sixth. Ranaudo is one of the beneficiaries of Boston's decision to do away with almost their entire rotation. The 6'7" righty had recorded a 2.41 ERA and a 12-4 record through 21 starts at Triple-A Pawtucket.
Aug 1 - 10:56 PM

Red Sox right-handed pitching prospect Anthony Ranaudo will make his major league debut against the Yankees on Friday.

One benefit of blowing up the major league team -- trading pitchers Jon Lester, Jake Peavy, John Lackey, Felix Doubront, and Andrew Miller -- is it allows the Red Sox to give auditions to high-upside prospects like Ranaudo. The right-hander has been outstanding at the Triple-A level over the last two seasons, going 15-5 with a 2.53 ERA across 149-plus innings. He has long-term No. 3 starter upside, and short-term mixed-league flier potential.
Jul 31 - 3:46 PM

Red Sox right-handed pitching prospect Anthony Ranaudo threw seven shutout innings for Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday, scattering three hits and two walks while striking out five.

Ranaudo has held batters to a .163/.228/.244 line in June, striking out 28 batters in six starts over 36 2/3 innings. He may be next in line for a promotion to Boston, and could be a solid No. 4 starter right away, with the potential to be a No. 3 starter down the line.
Jul 1 - 11:20 AM

Red Sox right-handed pitching prospect Anthony Ranaudo struck out four batters as part of 5 2/3 shutout innings on Saturday.

Ranaudo threw 62 of his 96 pitches for strikes (64.6%), scattering four hits and a walk. Unlike his last start, which included some good hitters, the Charlotte Knights lineup is weak for International League standard. However, Ranaudo has pitched much better over his past two starts, and could be the next pitcher up if the Red Sox need another starter.
Jun 15 - 10:26 AM

Red Sox right-handed pitching prospect dominated with seven shout innings, scattering two hits and striking out seven batters for Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday.

After an uneven start to the season, Ranaudo has dominated as of late, holding batters to a .183/.268/.266 line over his past five starts, striking out 27 batters over 31 1/3 innings. He shut down a lineup that included former major leaguers Mike Fontenot (0-for-3, 2 Ks against Ranaudo) and Jayson Nix (0-for-2), as well as prospect Mikie Mahtook (0-for-3, 2 Ks). Ranaudo lacks the star projection that he once possessed, but he could be a solid #4 starter and could see time in Boston later this summer.
Jun 7 - 10:06 AM

Red Sox right-handed pitching prospect Anthony Ranaudo had an uneven start on Monday for Triple-A Pawtucket, allowing three runs on three hits and four walks.

Ranaudo allowed only one single and two walks through five scoreless innings, but he imploded in the sixth, allowing two walks and a double and was unable to record an out. After a dominant 2013, Ranaudo looked like he could be the first pitcher called up for the Red Sox, but he is unlikely to be called up unless he can improve his performance. He has a 4.01 ERA and a 1.545 WHIP for the season.
May 6 - 9:59 AM

Red Sox prospect RHP Anthony Ranaudo turned in his best start of the season Tuesday, striking out seven batters in five scoreless innings for Triple-A Pawtucket.

The 24-year-old allowed a pair of hits and walks, and he was credited with a shutout after the game was called due to rain after 5 ½ innings. Ranaudo struggled his last time out, allowing three runs on six hits and four walks in only three innings against Rochester, but bounced back with one of his best starts of the season Tuesday. While he doesn’t profile as an impact starter, Ranaudo provides the Red Sox with rotation depth in the high minors and should receive his first taste of the major leagues later this season.
Apr 30 - 12:29 PM

Red Sox prospect right-hander Anthony Ranaudo threw six shutout innings on Saturday, allowing two hits and two walks while striking out five.

The line was very good and not spectacular, but it's the first quality start for Ranaudo in 2014. His ERA sits at 4.35 with a 3.88 FIP, so he may be pitching better than his ERA would indicate. He still sports a 9.1 K/9, so if he gets called up he could be a useful pitcher for fantasy purposes.
Apr 20 - 9:37 AM

Red Sox right-handed pitching prospect Anthony Ranaudo allowed five runs (four earned) and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings Wednesday while striking out four.

Ranaudo has allowed nine runs (five earned) in 9 2/3 innings in 2014, and Triple-A hitters are hitting .282/.364/.538 with a .346 BABIP off him. After a solid 2013, Ranaudo is now struggling, which could leave the door open to someone else (Brandon Workman, Henry Owens, Matt Barnes) to be the first call-up to Boston if a starting pitcher is needed.
Apr 10 - 9:45 AM

Red Sox optioned RHP Anthony Ranaudo, RHP Alex Wilson, INF Garin Cecchini, OF Bryce Brentz, and OF Alex Hassan to Triple-A Pawtucket.

The Red Sox cut their camp roster down from 58 to 46 on Thursday morning with no real surprises. Ranaudo posted a 2.96 ERA, 1.136 WHIP, and 127/47 K/BB ratio in 140 innings last season between Double-A and Triple-A. He could get a look in the majors in 2014.
