No, not that one. The other one:

The Boston Red Sox and Lowell (MA) Spinners today announced the
extension of their Player Development Contract (PDC) for an additional
two years. The extension keeps the Red Sox New York-Penn League
Short-Season Single-A affiliate in Lowell through the 2012 season.

Oh, don’t look at me like that. If you weren’t hungry for some baseball news you wouldn’t clicked in the first place.

Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Cubs shortstop Addison Russell stayed overnight in Denver after having an allergic reaction to something he ate from the postgame spread in the clubhouse at Coors Field after Sunday afternoon’s game. Russell spent a couple of hours at a hospital in Denver for observation on Sunday night.

Russell has a shellfish allergy and believes something he ate might have been mistakenly labeled as not having shrimp in it.

The Cubs took two of three games from the Rockies. After Monday’s day off, the Cubs open a brief two-game series in Cleveland for a rematch of the 2016 World Series. Russell flew with the team to Cleveland and believes he will be in good enough shape to play on Tuesday.

Russell, 24, has had a slow start to the season. He’s hitting .219/.324/.281 across 74 plate appearances.
