On Friday, Anthony Ranaudo will be called-up to take the hill for the Boston Red Sox. As a result, Edwin Escobar will be sent back down to Pawtucket to make room for Ranaudo.This has yet to officially occur, but will by midday Friday.
Ranaudo, 24, will be making his third career big league start after earning wins against both the Cincinnati Reds and the New York Yankees. He gets the nod in place of Brandon Workman who tossed the worst outing of his career on Sunday allowing seven earned in the fourth inning recording just one out.

This time, Ranaudo will be facing Chris Archer and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. It goes without saying that Anthony Ranaudo has never pitched at the Trop or against the Tampa Bay Rays for that matter.
On the year in Pawtucket, Ranaudo is posting a 2.61 ERA in 24 starts for the Paw Sox while walking 54 and striking out 111 men on 138.0 innings of work. His numbers were good enough to earn him a prestigious pitching award — International League Pitcher of the Year.

In his place, Brandon Workman will take the hill in Pawtucket on Friday so in essence, the two are switching places — for now.
For Ranaudo, this outing will be important because it will help determine whether or not he makes the Red Sox rotation next season. So far, Ranaudo has impressed at the big league level, but he will not be handed a job right away. He will need to string together a few more quality outings before being considered for a spot in the 2015 Red Sox rotation. For young pitchers, consistency is key.

With the season falling apart, Friday night could be one of the bright points of a rather bleak year. Even though the Red Sox are out of contention, Ranaudo’s start is worth watching. He may get a job in the rotation next year depending on how his next few starts go which makes him worth watching.
