PAWTUCKET â€“ With all roads leading to the PawSox qualifying for the Governorsâ€™ Cup playoffs for a third straight season, it raises the question of what kind of squad manager Gary DiSarcina will have at his disposal when the second season arrives.
To that end, DiSarcina admitted Wednesday that heâ€™s had brief conversations with Red Sox Director of Player Development Ben Crockett about how many players Pawtucket stands to lose on Sept. 1, which is the first day Major League teams are allowed to expand their rosters.
PAWTUCKET â€” The highly touted right-handed pitcher that breezed through the lower levels of the minor leagues ended up learning an important lesson this season â€“ thereâ€™s not always going to be smooth sailing.
PAWTUCKETâ€”Large plate glass windows facing the busy intersection of Broad and Barton streets offer a window to the world that Project RENEW is trying to reach.
