Red Sox starting pitching prospect Anthony Ranaudo was named Pitcher Of The Year in the Eastern League. The AA league—in which Boston's Portland Sea Dogs play—cited the 23-year old right-hander for posting a 2.95 ERA for Portland before he was promoted to AAA Pawtucket on August 2nd. He also lead the league in WHIP and batting-average-against. Ranaudo set a Sea Dog record by fanning 13 Erie SeaWolves on June 13th. The Red Sox took a bit of a gamble drafting Ranaudo out of LSU back in 2010 with the 39th overall pick, but that gamble has clearly paid off.
