Arruda rejects state's plea bargain in municipal embezzlement case

July 30, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Rachel Arruda, the former municipal court clerk accused of embezzling nearly $400,000 from the city, rejected the state’s offer of a plea bargain in Superior Court Tuesday, opting to fight the charges in a trial.
In trade for a guilty plea, state prosecutors told Judge Netti Vogel they were prepared to recommend that Arruda be sentenced to 15 years, with no more than 18 months in prison and the balance suspended with probation. In addition, she would have had to make full restitution to the city within 14 years.

DiSarcina: Every player ‘should feel like they have an opportunity’ for a callup to Boston

July 29, 2013

PAWTUCKET — The conversation started out as a prime chance to look ahead for PawSox players Alex Hassan and Dan Butler. The pair is listed on Boston’s 40-man roster, meaning there’s a pretty good chance that each will make their big-league debuts when MLB rosters expand come September.
It wasn’t Gary DiSarcina’s intention to throw this reporter off the trail, but not soon after the two aforementioned names and the particular circumstances surrounding them were brought to his attention, the Pawtucket manager made a point that helped place everything in proper perspective.

July 29, 2013

PAWTUCKET — On the surface, it seems fitting that Jose Contreras and Brandon Lyon are locker room neighbors in the PawSox clubhouse.

One stall stands between the two veteran right-handed pitchers who by happenstance reported to the Triple-A ballclub on the same day (July 19). At this stage, Contreras, 41, and Lyon, 33, are intriguing due to the perception of bullpen depth that’s already in the fold – something the Red Sox at the moment seem to have in abundance considering Franklin Morales and Alex Wilson are in town this week for rehab assignments.
