Red Sox prospect Anthony Ranaudo took a big step toward his dream of playing in the Majors when he was called up to the Red Sox' triple-A affiliate PawSox on Friday.

Ranaudo sported an 8-4 record in 19 stats to go along with his 2.95 ERA and K/BB ratio of 106/40. He was tied for 6th in the Eastern League in Wins, 3rd in ERA, and 1st in both WHIP (1.09) and Batting Average Against (.204).

His last win came on June 30 at New Hampshire, 13-5 as he went 0-2 with a 3.86 ERA in 4 starts in July.

Ranaudo was Boston’s sandwich pick between the 1st and 2nd rounds (#39 overall) in the 2010 draft after a standout career at Louisiana State University.

Ranaudo will make his PawSox debut this coming Monday night in Buffalo.  To make room for Ranaudo on their roster the PawSox transferred LHP Chris Hernandez (3-9, 5.72) to Portland.
