Red Sox unveil Triple-A Worcester team name and logo

The Boston Red Sox' Triple-A affiliate is one step closer to its move from Pawtucket, R.I. to Worcester.

The Pawtucket Red Sox -- a.k.a. the PawSox -- will play one more season in Rhode Island before moving to the "Heart of the Commonwealth."

On Monday, the Red Sox unveiled the team name and logo for its Triple-A club. Behold, the Worcester WooSox:

The WooSox will take the field in their new $100 million, 10,000-seat ballpark in 2021.

Michael Chavis goes 0-for-3 in his first rehab start at Pawtucket

Michael Chavis goes 0-for-3 in his first rehab start at Pawtucket

Michael Chavis is nearing a return to the Boston Red Sox lineup.

The rookie began his rehab assignment with the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox on Friday night by playing five innings at first base and going 0-for-3 at the plate against Buffalo. He was placed on the injured list on Aug. 12 with an AC joint sprain in his left shoulder.

Following what was a scorching-hot start to his inaugural campaign, Chavis has seen his fair share of struggles at the plate. The 24-year-old's issues with the high fastball have contributed to him having one of the highest strikeout rates in the league at 33.3 percent (127 Ks in 382 plate appearances). "The Ice Horse" will look to come back healthy and finish the season strong for a Red Sox team that's fighting just to clinch a playoff berth.

Chavis is hitting .254 with 18 HR and 58 RBI in 95 games this year.

Nathan Eovaldi treated PawSox to a steak and lobster dinner after his rehab appearance

Nathan Eovaldi treated PawSox to a steak and lobster dinner after his rehab appearance

After pitching a scoreless inning in his one and only rehab appearance for the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox earlier this week, you could say Nathan Eovaldi left with a good taste in his mouth as he resumes his major league career with Boston, beginning tonight in Baltimore. 

He made sure his minor league teammates had one, too.

Eovaldi, in the first year of a four-year, $68 million contract he signed in the offseason, treated the PawSox to a dinner of steak and lobster tail after the game, Brendan McGair of the Pawtucket Times reported:

With outfielder Rusney Castillo at Pawtucket since 2016 and still a year to go on his seven-year, $72 million deal he signed as a free agent when he left Cuba in 2014, you'd think most of the PawSox, where the minimum Triple-A salary is about $11,000, would be eating pretty good almost every game night.
