Rangers pitcher Anthony Ranaudo tosses six innings Friday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Rangers pitcher Anthony Ranaudo went six innings Friday against the Athletics, allowing just two runs.

Ranaudo, who is competing for a spot in the starting rotation, liked that he was able to get up to the six-inning plateau.

"This was a good day. It was the first time I got up six times (innings) and I felt good," Ranaudo said. "I was throwing my pitches for strikes and mixing my pitches well. It was a step in the right direction as far as getting ready for the season."

Ranaudo added three strikeouts and lowered his spring ERA to 5.02.


Rangers pitcher Anthony Ranaudo gives up three homers Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2015) Rangers pitcher Anthony Ranaudo surrendered three home runs on six hits over four innings in Saturday's game against the Dodgers. Despite playing on a field with a short fence, Ranaudo conceded he left the ball up to hit, reports MLB.com.

"It's human element to be a little disappointed in the results, even though they might be an out in another stadium," Ranaudo said. "Some of those balls were hit pretty well. I do look at the result of the pitch and a couple of those weren't my best pitches. I'd like to execute better. Granted, maybe one or two of them may have been outs, but they weren't the pitches that I wanted to throw or execute the way I wanted to execute."


Anthony Ranaudo to pitch in minor league game for Rangers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2015) Pitcher Anthony Ranaudo will return to the mound in a minor league game for the Rangers on Monday.

Rangers' Anthony Ranaudo exits Thursday with arm discomfort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2015) Rangers starting pitcher Anthony Ranaudo was forced out of Thursday's spring game against the White Sox due to elbow discomfort, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Ranaudo allowed three runs on four hits and no walks while striking out two over 2 1/3 innings pitched before the injury. Of his 44 pitches, 30 were strikes.

He told reporters that the discomfort in his elbow is normal, and that he expects to make his next scheduled start.


Rangers' Anthony Ranaudo dealt with fatigue down the stretch in 2014


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2015) Newly acquired Rangers starting pitcher Anthony Ranaudo tossed a career-high 177 innings between the minors and majors in 2014. It surpassed his previous best by nearly 40 innings, and Ranuado admits he started to feel the fatigue late in the season, especially with the velocity on his primary pitch -- four-seam fastball.

“I think I learned a lot from the experience,” Ranaudo said Tuesday, per The Dallas Morning News. “I learned the major-league strike zone, and I learned the difference between a strike and a quality strike in the major leagues.

“I also think I was a little fatigued down the stretch and that led to a little tail on my ball. I’d try to go away and my fastball would drift back towards the middle of the plate.”

Ranaudo went 4-3 with a 4.81 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in seven starts for Boston in 2014. He also allowed 10 home runs and walked more batters (16) than he struck out (15). In the minors, however, he went 14-4 with a 2.61 ERA in 24 starts at Triple-A.


Red Sox trade Anthony Ranaudo to Rangers for Robbie Ross


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) The Red Sox and Rangers announced a two player trade Tuesday where Boston sent Anthony Ranaudo to Texas and the Rangers sent Robbie Ross to the Red Sox, both teams announced.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Tuesday Ranaudo is in play to become the No. 5 starter in the rotation, but if he doesn't win the job, he will likely start in the minors.

Ranaudo posted a 4-3 record with a 4.81 ERA in 2014 for Boston in 39 1/3 innings pitched. Ross went 3-6 with a 6.20 ERA in 78 1/3 innings for the Rangers.


Anthony Ranaudo allows two runs in win vs. Rays


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Ranaudo (4-3) gave up a pair of runs in the first inning but settled down to deliver an excellent performance from that point on. It was his first outing without surrendering a home run, and the win puts an end to a three-start losing streak. Ranaudo owns a 4.81 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 15:16 K:BB ratio in 39 1/3 innings.


Red Sox shuffle rotation for final week


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/21/2014) WEEI.com reports that Brandon Workman and Rubby De La Rosa have been removed from the Red Sox's rotation for the final week of the season. Clay Buchholz, Anthony Ranaudo and Allen Webster are set to make starts against the Rays, and then Joe Kelly and Buchholz will start the last two games of the team's season-ending series against the Yankees.

Friday's starter in the series opener against the Yankees is still to be named, but Steven Wright is a candidate to get the nod. Wright has posted a 3.38 ERA in five relief appearances this season.

Until he can keep the ball in the park on a regular, he'll continue to have trouble delivering quality performances. Ranaudo owns a 5.29 ERA and 13:15 K:BB ratio in 32 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Rays next Tuesday.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Anthony Ranaudo up to two wins after two MLB starts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Red Sox starting pitcher Anthony Ranaudo is making a habit of winning every time he takes the hill. Ranaudo improved to 2-0 in his second career MLB start during a 5-4 win Wednesday at Cincinnati.

The rookie hurler pitched with a 2-0 lead before Devin Mesoraco cut the Cincinnati deficit to one with a sac fly in the third inning. The Reds then went ahead 3-2 in the fourth inning thanks to solo home runs from Skip Schumaker and opposing pitcher Mike Leake.

Value hard to find among Red Sox rotation candidates


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Red Sox have decided to go all-in on next season, turning the rotation over to a slew of young guys after the trades of Jon Lester and John Lackey prior to the deadline. With so many innings up for grabs, Fantasy owners will want to keep a close eye on how things shake out, especially given the team's abundance of seemingly capable young starters.

Among the group of pitchers expected to get a shot at some point down the stretch are Anthony Ranaudo, Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa, Brandon Workman and Joe Kelly. The latter four all have at least some major-league experience, though Ranaudo will get at least a taste of the majors when he debuts Friday against the Yankees. Of these five pitchers, who, if anyone, should Fantasy owners have their eyes on?

For now, it looks like De La Rosa, Ranaudo, Webster, Workman and Clay Buchholz have the next five spots in the rotation locked up, though a spot might open up for Kelly at some point once he reports to the team. De La Rosa, Buchholz and Kelly all have some measure of major-league success under their belts, though none profiles as a high-upside Fantasy option, given their middling track records so far. If upside is to be found, it is likely to come in the form of one of the other options. 

Webster has the best prospect pedigree among the group, and he and Ranaudo probably have the highest ceilings for now. Of course, the obvious caveats about young pitching apply. Though their upside is tantalizing, we simply don't have any record of success at the major-league level to depend on.

The Red Sox don't have a lot of sure things for their long-term rotation, and they will need to use these last few months get an idea of who they can count on next season. The question for Fantasy owners is whether they want their roster to be the team's laboratory during the most important months of the season. 

The young guys in Boston will all get their turns, but there isn't anyone in the rotation right now that screams "must-add," either due to a lack of upside or proven track record. AL-only owners might be smart to take a flier on anyone currently in the team's rotation, but it doesn't look like anyone here is worth consideration in mixed-leagues at this time. 


Anthony Ranaudo will make debut as starter Friday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) The Red Sox have announced top pitching prospect Anthony Ranaudo will make his major-league debut Friday against the Yankees, after a flurry of trades left the team in need of starters.

Ranaudo has been dominant at times at Triple-A Pawtucket this season, posting a 2.41 ERA in 119 1/3 innings, with 99 strikeouts and 49 walks. With the Red Sox having moved two starts at the trade deadline, he could remain in the rotation moving forward.
