Welcome PawSox fans of all ages to WBOB’s PawSox Weekly Notebook, a weekly guide to all what’s happening with your Pawtucket Red Sox. That’s enough of the pleasantries so let’s get down to business.
This past week, the PawSox came back to Pawtucket to host 2 series against 2 different teams at home. One of them, the Gwinnett Stripers, the PawSox had just finished playing against them during the previous weekend and end up getting swept by them.
Not to mention that joining the team were a slew of Boston Red Sox players who were on an injury rehab assignment, including one familiar face that all PawSox fans should know.
With that being said, let’s take a look and see what happened this past week.

On a calm, sunny Friday evening the Pawtucket Red Sox played host to the Gwinnett Stripers in the first game of a 3-game weekend series. Earlier in the month, the PawSox played the Stripers down in Lawrenceville, Georgia, in a 3-game weekend series but the Stripers ended up sweeping. Taking the mound for the PawSox was LHP Matthew Kent (0-0, 3.60) as the Stripers countered with LHP Kelly Allard (2-2, 4.00).
There was a special guest in the house at McCoy Stadium. Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia was with the team as he was continuing his MLB injury rehab assignment for knee discomfort. This was actually Pedroia’s 2nd time rehabbing with the PawSox in 2 years as he was with the team for 5 games in May of 2018 while rehabbing for his knee. He joined fellow Red Sox players 2B/Util. Brock Holt and LHP Brian Johnson, both in their own rehab assignment with the PawSox.
Potential. That’s the buzz word that is thrown around so often in the sporting world.
We hear a player has potential for decades, and they keep getting the benefit of the doubt even though they don’t show the results of their potential on the field.
Every team in every sport probably has a player like this. One who has been said to have loads of potential for the longest period of time, but their skills have never came to fruition whatsoever.

After many days of rain and grey, the skies cleared up Wednesday evening as the Pawtucket Red Sox played host to the Columbus Clippers. The Clippers took the first game of the series on Tuesday night, winning 5-4 in 10 innings as the PawSox looked to avenge that loss with a victory in Wednesday's contest.
There were actually 2 Boston Red Sox rehabbing with the PawSox that participated in the contest. 2B/Util. Brock Holt (scratched right cornea) was back for his 3rd rehab stint with the team. Joining him was LHP Brian Johnson, who was recently added to the team before the start of the game, as he was on a rehab assignment for left elbow inflammation.
