Red Sox Re-Up With AAA Pawtucket And Single A Lowell

The Red Sox announced on Friday that they have extended their Player Developments Contracts with two of their six minor-league franchises—the AAA Pawtucket Red Sox and the Single A (short-season) Lowell Spinners.

The team is being wooed by officials in Worcester, Massachusetts—and it's unclear if Rhode Island officials will OK the funding of a proposed new stadium that would keep the AAA affiliate in the nation's smallest state.
