Ranaudo was traded to the White Sox on Thursday. Ranaudo was part of a deal that sent minor league pitcher Matt Ball to the Rangers. Ranaudo has been impressive in the minor leagues so far this season, holding a 2.03 ERA with 18 strikeouts in three starts this season. That hasn't transferred to the majors, though, as his 17.18 major league ERA shows. Following the transaction, the right-hander was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte, where he'll likely stay until the White Sox are in need of another arm.
Ranaudo was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Ranaudo was recalled last week and appeared in two games during his stint with the Rangers, allowing seven earned runs and eight walks over just 3.2 innings. He'll head back down to Round Rock, where he holds a 2.02 ERA through 13.1 innings in 2016. In a corresponding move, Texas recalled Andrew Faulkner from Triple-A on Wednesday.
Ranaudo was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Friday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. The right-hander was previously scheduled to start for Round Rock on Friday after missing time in April with a groin issue, but the organization has decided instead that he'd be better utilized in a long-relief role at the major league level. Phil Klein was optioned down to make room for Ranaudo on the big league roster.
Ranaudo (groin) will start Friday's game with Triple-A Round Rock. Ranaudo missed time in April with his groin injury, but he returned to the mound May 1 and will remain in the rotation moving forward. He is off to a good start this year, posting a 2.03 ERA and 18:4 K:BB ratio in 13.1 innings across three starts.
Ranaudo (groin) was placed on the 7-day DL at Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. With the ability to backdate Ranaudo's DL stint, the Rangers expect the right-hander to be healthy enough to return for his scheduled start early next week. Ranaudo didn't go more than five innings in either of his first two starts, but allowed just two runs while posting a 13:3 K:BB in 9.1 total frames.
