PawSox pitching coach believes young starting pitchers will 'start in the big leagues' someday

May 20, 2014

PAWTUCKET — Rich Sauveur firmly believes that all five current members of the PawSox’ starting rotation possess the ability to hold down jobs at pro baseball’s highest level.

May 20, 2014

PAWTUCKET — Springtime may have finally sprung in southern New England, but Pawtucket’s bats remain in a deep slumber.
The offensive doldrums that have plagued the locals for much of the season perhaps simmered to a boil during the eighth inning of Tuesday’s disheartening 3-0 loss to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, winners of three games in this four-game set. With two runners on base and the potential tying run at the plate, the PawSox turned to their Nos. 4 and 5 hitters in the hope seeing a ball disappear over the McCoy Stadium fence.
