RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

After a successful first season in the organization in 2011, Ranaudo took a major step back in 2012, largely due to injuries. A groin injury in spring training delayed his start until May and then he suffered shoulder fatigue in the second half shutting down his season early. In between, there was mechanical issues and inconsistent results from game-to-game and inning-to-inning. There's often regression for young pitchers moving from High-A to Double-A, but with Ranaudo, it was compounded by injuries and his lanky 6-7 frame. He aggravated the groin in winter ball and starts 2013 off the radar. He'll re-start at Double-A.

2012

Ranaudo had success starting the season at Low-A Greenville and received a quick promotion to the High-A Carolina League pitching for Salem. Consistent success at the advanced level eluded him, but the Red Sox are not worried. He's the top starter prospect in the organization and will stay on with Salem to open the 2012 season. The 22-year-old righty has three good pitches right now and needs to work on being consistent in his timing and repeating his delivery.

2011

Ranaudo is a name that will generate some ink in 2011, especially after the Red Sox included pitching prospect Casey Kelly in the deal to acquire first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. A top college pitcher in 2010, Ranaudo experienced some elbow soreness that resulted in poor numbers, reduced fastball velocity, and a fall to the supplemental round in the 2010 draft. He pitched in the Cape Cod League last summer and was cartoonishly dominant there. That earned him first-round dollars from Boston, who feel the elbow is not a major concern and any mechanical flaws related to compensating for the elbow are fixable. Prior to the elbow soreness, Ranaudo flashed three good pitches including a downhill fastball, plus-potential power curve and changeup.

2010

Ranaudo, 20, was a top pitching prospect at LSU heading into the 2010 season, but saw his stock drop because of elbow soreness early in the season. The injury led to some mechanical issues and he struggled to regain his 2009 form (159 Ks, 3.04 ERA in 124.1 innings). He lost some velocity and movement on his 91-94 mph fastball, and never regained his feel for the strike zone (27 BB in 51.2 innings). Prior to the injury, he flashed a good curve and was developing a changeup. The Red Sox took a chance on him in the supplemental round and believe his mechanical flaws can be fixed. He is pitching in the Cape Cod League, hoping to prove he's worth more to Boston than supplemental-round money.
