Xander Bogaerts is headed to the triple-A Pawsox...is pitcher Anthony Randaudo far behind? The Red Sox farm system is churning out young talent at a rapid pace.

Bogaerts is just 20-years-old  but his skill level is well beyond his years.In 47 games with the Portland Seadogs, Bogaerts was hitting .311 / 6 HR / 35 RBI. He will make his Pawsox debut tonight.

In August of 2009 Bogaerts played at Mansfield Stadium in Bangor as a 16-year-old on the Latin America Senior League World Series team from Aruba. HIs team lost in the semi-final round. Bogaerts signed with the Red Sox shortly after his SRWS appearance

Meanwhile, righthanded pitcher Anthony Ranaudo struck out 13 Erie batters in seven and two-thirds innings at Hadlock Field Thursday night. The Seadogs won the game 2-0

Ranaudo's 13 K's tied Jon Lester for the Seadogs club record. At one point in the game Randaudo struck out 7 in a row, one short of Clay Buchholz' Seadogs record.

Randaudo is now 7-1 with a 2.15 ERA and clearly is a candidate for Pawtucket.
