Red Sox prospects of the past and where they have landed

A first round selection for the Red Sox in the 2010 draft Anthony Ranaudo made it to Boston in 2014 for seven starts. The results were not a disaster and some promise was there with a 4-3 record and 4.81 ERA. That was an illusion.
I had seen the 6’7” Ranaudo in several starts in Pawtucket in 2014 when he finished 14-4. His size, sinking fastball, and secondary pitches reminded me of a long ago Red Sox pitcher – Don Schwall. Both had questionable control, but a deadly sinker.
The Red Sox traded Ranaudo to Texas for Robbie Ross and now Big Anthony is playing in the Korean League.
