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

Ross put up a 2.62 ERA as a reliever for the Rangers from 2012-13 before struggling when tried in the rotation last season. The Red Sox have enough starting depth and need left-handed relief help, so Ross is bound for the bullpen. Ranaudo is a former sandwich round pick who has been terrific in the minors the last two years but struggled with the big club. He could be given a chance to compete for a rotation spot but might be ticketed for Triple-A.
