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.

Ten years later, Contreras, Lyon finally find themselves in same dugout with PawSox

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.
