PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Pawtucket Red Sox spokeswoman says the team’s owners are looking differently at the public-private partnership for a proposed stadium in Providence.

Patti Doyle made the comments Wednesday ahead of a closed-door Democratic caucus called by House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello. Mattiello spokesman Larry Berman says the stadium proposal and other topics, like the budget, will be discussed.

The new owners of the Triple-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox had originally asked for about $120 million in state subsidies over 30 years if they build a ballpark.

Doyle says they will now look at an “entirely different way” to structure the public-private partnership. She says they’re talking with lawmakers and “working diligently on exploring a different way to keep the PawSox in Rhode Island.”

She did not provide further details.
