Ranaudo Named AAA Most Valuable Pitcher

Anthony Ranaudo—IL Pitcher Of The Year For 2014
While other pitchers in the Red Sox system tend to get more ink, Anthony Ranaudo just keeps piling up the trophies. The right-hander out of LSU has been named International League Most Valuable Pitcher for 2014. Last year, he earned Eastern League Pitcher of the Year honors. For AAA Pawtucket, Ranaudo went 14-4 with a 2.61 ERA—striking out 111 batters in 138 innings over 24 starts. You might also recall that he pitched six strong innings against The Evil Ones in his major league debut earlier this year. Hats off to Anthony—appearing soon in a starting rotation near you!
