In his return to the majors, Anthony Ranaudo shut out the Dodgers across 6 2/3 innings on Thursday.

Unfortunately, he took a no-decision while matching zeroes with Zack Greinke. Regardless, it was a tremendous audition for the 25-year-old, making a spot start to provide an extra day of rest for Texas' other starters. Ranaudo struck out four, walked two and scattered five hits. He has a career 5.93 ERA in the majors in limited action, but has been far better in the minors and is a well-regarded prospect. Ranaudo was expected to get optioned to the minors after this game, but we'll soon find out if his performance caused a change in thinking.

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

The 25-year-old will be making a spot start against the Dodgers on Thursday to provide an extra day of rest for the rest of the hurlers in the Rangers rotation. He owns a 2.45 ERA but troublesome 1.41 WHIP through 62 1/3 innings at Triple-A Round Rock this season and was clobbered in his only start with the Rangers.

Anthony Ranaudo will make a spot start for the Rangers on Thursday against the Dodgers.

Everyone in the Rangers' rotation will be pushed back, allowing for some needed rest. Ranaudo, 25, has posted a 2.45 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and 50/24 K/BB ratio in 62 1/3 innings this season at Triple-A Round Rock. He got rocked in his one major league start in April.
Jun 17 - 5:37 PM

Rangers pitching prospect Anthony Ranaudo delivered a strong effort Sunday, allowing just three hits in seven scoreless innings for Triple-A Round Rock.

He tied a season-high with seven strikeouts. The right-hander is 3-0 with a 1.80 ERA over his last three starts. Ranaudo leads the Pacific Coast League in wins (six) and is fifth in ERA (2.40). The 25-year-old got blasted in his only big league start this year (1 2/3 IP, 6 H, 6 ER) but he should have a chance to redeem himself.
Jun 8 - 4:11 PM

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

Ranaudo was blasted for six earned runs in just 1 2/3 innings Wednesday in a spot start against the Angels. Texas will make a corresponding roster move Friday.
Apr 15 - 6:00 PM

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.
Mar 21 - 5:12 PM

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.
