LSU Ace Ranaudo Has Bad Elbow

by Bill Franques, Senior Associate Sports Information Director

BATON ROUGE — LSU junior right-hander Anthony Ranaudo will miss Friday’s scheduled start versus William & Mary due to discomfort in his throwing elbow, coach Paul Mainieri said Wednesday.

Mainieri said Ranaudo’s ailment is classified as a stress reaction that does not involve ligament damage, and it does not appear to be a long-term condition.

“He may just miss this start, or it may be another two or three weeks,” Mainieri said. “We don’t think it’s a serious problem, but we don’t want to put Anthony on the mound until he feels 100 percent. He is one of the top pitchers in the country, and I’m certainly not going to do anything to jeopardize his career.”
