Ranaudo capped his season off with seven strong innings in Wednesday night's win over the Rays. He allowed two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out two.
Another positive was that for the first time in seven big-league starts, Ranaudo did not allow a home run. The Red Sox are expected to add an elite starting pitcher in the offseason and perhaps a second arm. Where Ranaudo and other young hurlers, like Rubby De La Rosa, Brandon Workman and Allen Webster, fit in 2015 will be determined by how the organization addresses its starting rotation in the offseason.
