From the Rangers’ executive vice president of communications, John Blake …

Ranaudo failed to impress in the major leagues last season with the Red Sox, posting a 4.81 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in seven starts, but the 25-year-old has good minor league numbers and will give Texas rotation depth for the 2015 season and beyond. Ross, also 25 years old, owns a 3.27 ERA in 145 2/3 innings as a reliever at the big league level. He has a 5.70 ERA in 60 innings as a starter. It’s a nice bullpen addition for Boston.
