PawSox Losing Plenty Of Familiar Faces With Retiring Of Dan Butler And The Departure Of Kevin Boles

The Pawtucket Red Sox off seasons are typically quiet with most of the action being decided by the big club in Boston, but this off-season has been a tad different. For starters this off season started with Manager Kevin Boles announcing he was not going to return to the triple-a ball-club.

Losing the highly respected Boles is a huge loss for the organization and as of the writing of this article he has yet to be replaced with the organization looking from both within and outside the organization for candidates. But Boles isn’t the only friendly face that won’t be around for Pawtucket’s first full season after announcing their departure to Worcester.

Player departures are a certain in baseball especially at the minor league level. A few of the names that are taking their talents elsewhere are Justin Haley and William Cuevas, both pitchers are heading to Korea to play baseball. Nothing major there but there is a departure that will certainly shake up the chemistry in the Bolesless clubhouse.

32-year-old long-time minor league catcher Dan Butler decided to hang up his mask earlier this week and announced he was retiring from baseball and is taking a job as a bullpen catcher out in Arizona for former Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo. Butler, an Arizona resident has been a highly respected catcher in the minor leagues and ultimately an important figure in developing Red Sox pitching prospects ever since he signed as a free agent with the organization back in 2009.

With Boles and Butler gone, the very makeup of the PawSox clubhouse is essentially gone. It will be very interesting on what the ballclub will look like come Spring.

It will be the first openly public event for the ballclub since the end of the past season and a chance for fans to buy tickets and meet former players Dennis “Oil Can Boyd” and Lenny Dinardo while taking in fun activities such as Red Sox VR, buy memorabilia, and meet the mascots and take photos with the family.
