Rangers starter Anthony Ranaudo leaves game with arm injury

7 Comments

Another day, another injured Rangers pitcher.

This time it’s starter Anthony Ranaudo, who exited this afternoon’s game against the White Sox with what the team is calling “right arm discomfort.” He’ll no doubt undergo further testing.

Ranaudo was a Red Sox first-round pick in 2010 and was acquired from Boston in January in exchange for Robbie Ross. He made seven starts for the Red Sox in his debut last season and is now competing for a spot in the Rangers’ rotation, which is a lot less lofty of a goal following news that Yu Darvish will likely need season-ending Tommy John elbow surgery.
