Anthony Ranaudo allows two runs in win vs. Rays


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Red Sox pitcher Anthony Ranaudo earned a win Wednesday, surrendering two earned runs on six hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out two in his team's 11-3 victory over the Rays.

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.

Ranaudo (3-3) surrendered a two-run blast in the second inning and a solo shot in the sixth inning, giving him 10 home runs allowed in his six starts with the team. 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.

Anthony Ranaudo turns in difficult start Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Red Sox starter Anthony Ranaudo had a rocky start Wednesday against the Yankees.

With one out in the second inning, he gave up a single and a two-run homer to start the scoring. He would settle in for two innings, but allowed another run in the fifth. With the bases loaded, Jacoby Ellsbury managed to loft a sac fly to left. Ranaudo pitched into the sixth, but was pulled after giving up a walk.

With the loss, Ranaudo dropped to 3-1. He’ll take on the Orioles in his next start.

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.

However, the Red Sox went back ahead in the top of the fifth inning, which is a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Ranaudo did give up a sac fly in the bottom of the fifth inning, but the Red Sox were still ahead 5-4.

The right-hander allowed four runs on eight hits and one walk, while striking out one in six innings. If Ranaudo remains in the rotation, his next start would come Monday against the Angels.

It remains to be seen if Ranaudo will remain in the rotation moving forward.

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. 


Red Sox send five to Triple-A


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) The Red Sox have sent Anthony Ranaudo, Alex Wilson, Garin Cecchini, Bryce Brentz and Alex Hassan to Triple-A.

The club cut down from 58 to 46 players Thursday. Both Ranaudo and Cecchini are considered prospects within the system, but need more time to develop in the minors before they make their major-league debuts.


Anthony Ranaudo strikes out four in brilliant spring debut Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2014) Red Sox pitcher Anthony Ranaudo pitched two perfect innings and struck out four in his spring debut Friday as the Red Sox fell to the Twins, 8-2.

Ranaudo wasn't surprised by pitching well but did express some surprise that the opposition didn't take advantage of a few of his mistake pitches.

"I don’t really want to say I was surprised, but maybe a little surprised because some of them were up in the zone, even some early in the count. Obviously I’ve got to do a better job of bringing the ball down, but I wouldn’t say I was surprised," Ranaudo told MLB.com. "That’s what I’m going for every time I go out there — either swing and misses or weak contact or getting outs. I don’t like to use the word surprised, but I guess maybe in that context, some of them were up in the zone, but it felt good to get those swing-and-misses, for sure."

Ranaudo wasn't named one of the top 100 prospects in the league in either of the preseason lists from Baseball America or MLB.com, but he certainly has the potential to turn heads this spring after going 11-5 with a 2.96 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 127:47 K:BB ratio in 140 innings between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket last season.


Red Sox add three to 40-man roster


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2013) The Red Sox added third baseman Garin Cecchini, outfielder Bryce Brentz and pitcher Anthony Ranaudo to the 40-man roster Thursday.

Cecchini hit .322/.443/.471 with seven home runs, 61 RBI and 23 stolen bases in 454 at-bats between high Class A Salem and Double-A Portland in 2013. Brentz his .264/.312/.475 with 17 home runs and 56 RBI in 326 at-bats with Triple-A Pawtucket. Ranaudo went 11-5 with a 2.66 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 127:47 K:BB ratio in 140 innings between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket.


Anthony Ranaudo knocked around Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2013) Red Sox pitching prospect Anthony Ranaudo was knocked around during Sunday's start at Triple-A Pawtucket.

Ranaudo went just three innings, giving up five runs. He surrendered eight hits, and walked two. Ranaudo struck out just one batter. Even after the rough start, Ranaudo still has a solid 3.42 ERA in Triple-A. 


Red Sox promote Anthony Ranaudo


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2013) The Red Sox have promoted prospect pitcher Anthony Ranaudo to Triple-A Pawtucket, the club announced Friday. 

Ranaudo, 23, was the 14th-ranked prospect in the Red Sox system according to Baseball America heading into the season. He excelled at Double-A Portland, where he posted a 2.95 ERA with 106 strikeouts in 109 2/3 innings. He is considered a legitimate option for a Red Sox rotation spot at some point in 2014.


Anthony Ranaudo pushing to get promoted to Triple-A


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2013) Red Sox pitcher Anthony Ranaudo is dominating Double-A, and is pushing for a promotion to Pawtucket. 

Through 12 starts, Ranaudo has a 2.14 ERA in Double-A. Ranaudo has 76 strikeouts through 67 innings. Ranaudo is already 24-years-old, and would be eligible for the Rule 5 draft this coming offseason, so there's some speculation he'll be promoted and added to the 40-man roster before the end of the year. 


Boston has wealth of starters at Double-A


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2013) After seemingly being starved of pitching depth last season, the Red Sox appear to have a wealth of options at the top levels of their minor-league system, CBS Sports Baseball Insider Danny Knobler writes. 

"They have four guys in the [Double-A] Portland rotation who all throw 96 [mph] or better," one scout said. "And two more guys out of the bullpen who throw 96."

One such prospect who a scout said is "close to ready" for the big leagues is Double-A Portland's Anthony Ranaudo. A first-round pick in 2010 who was injured most of last year, the 23-year-old is 4-0 with a 1.00 ERA and 30 strikeouts over five starts and 27 innings. 

Portland also boasts Matt Barnes, a 2011 first-round pick, Brandon Workman and Drake Britton. Barnes is 2-1 with a 6.75 ERA with 27 Ks over 20 innings. Workman is 4-0 with a 2.80 ERA and 42 Ks over 35 1/3 innings. Britton is 2-2 with a 4.75 ERA and 30 Ks over 30 1/3 innings. 

"All four of those guys are going to be good pieces for the Red Sox," a scout said.
