May 2, 2012

Call it a case of all’s well that ends well as Aaron Cook is officially a member of the Boston Red Sox.
Reached Wednesday night, Joe Bick, Cook’s agent, says he went ahead and filed the necessary “opt-out notification” paperwork shortly after the clock struck midnight and the calendar read May 2, one day following the May 1 opt-out clause that the veteran pitcher had written into the minor-league deal he signed back in January.

Rainville, Lawrence lead Novans past Northmen

May 2, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Skipper John Marsella refused to let junior Brandon Rainville step into the batter’s box after he suffered an injury to his right pinkie finger earlier in the season.
The hiatus: Two weeks, and Rainville was just itching to get back into the lineup.
“He took some swings (Tuesday) and he looked OK; he said he felt OK, so we let him hit (Wednesday),” Marsella stated. “Still, we batted him ninth (in the order) because we didn’t want him to have too many at-bats.”
