BOSTON (CBS) — The Red Sox have recalled pitcher Anthony Ranaudo from Triple-A, who will get the start Wednesday afternoon against the Cincinnati Reds.
Ranaudo will get the start in place of Brandon Workman, who manager John Farrell announced Tuesday will have his turn in the rotation skipped in favor of the 24-year-old.
Workman has struggled this season after a successful run in 2013, and has lost each of his last six appearances. His latest loss came out of the bullpen in Boston’s 19-inning loss to the Angels on Saturday night. Overall, Workman is 1-6 with a 4.45 ERA this season.

In 22 starts for Pawtucket this season, Ranaudo went 13-4 with a 2.58 ERA, allowing 98 hits and issuing just 50 walks while striking out 104 batters in 125.2 innings of work.
The Red Sox drafted Ranaudo 39th overall in the 2010 draft.
