2010 MLB Draft, Pick 39: Red Sox Draft Anthony Ranaudo (P, Louisiana State)

With the 39th overall pick in the 2010 MLB First Year Player Draft, the Red Sox selected pitcher Anthony Ranaudo out of LSU.

Ranaudo is a top-five talent that saw his stock drop after an injury-plagued 2010 season. After making a name for himself with a fantastic sophomore season at LSU, Ranaudo kicked off 2010 with an army injury and wasn't the same pitcher afterward.

The injury concerns, plus the fact Ranaudo's agent is Scott Boras, dropped the tall (6'7") righty's stock. The Red Sox and Boras have had luck striking deals in the past, though, so seeing Ranaudo join the Sox wouldn't be a surprise.
