— Player Notes
Advice: One benefit of blowing up the major league team -- trading pitchers Jon Lester, Jake Peavy, John Lackey, Felix Doubront, and Andrew Miller -- is it allows the Red Sox to give auditions to high-upside prospects like Ranaudo. The right-hander has been outstanding at the Triple-A level over the last two seasons, going 15-5 with a 2.53 ERA across 149-plus innings. He has long-term No. 3 starter upside, and short-term mixed-league flier potential.
