Red Sox Reach An Extension To Stick With The Lowell Spinners
The Boston Red Sox have reached a two-year player development extension with their short-season team, the Lowell Spinners. The extension means the team will be involved with the Red Sox through the 2014 season.
The Spinners, part of the New York – Penn League, have been affiliated with the Boston Red Sox since 1996.
Several present and former Boston Red Sox players have gone through Lowell on their way to the Major Leagues including Jonathon Papelbon, Hanley Ramirez, Clay Bucholz, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Kevin Youkilis.
