Red Sox to trim down loaded outfield soon
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) The Red Sox are expected to trim down its crowded outfield soon, with less than two weeks before Opening Day, according to MLB.com on Tuesday.
"We have to take these remaining days in camp here and determine what's best for us as an organization," said Farrell. "I'm not suggesting there's player movement anywhere, but there's only going to be three [starting] spots."
At this point, it appears as if Hanley Ramirez and Mookie Betts have left and center field locked up, respectively. Daniel Nava, Shane Victorino, Rusney Castillo and Allen Craig are all in the mix for the final spots.
"And there's six guys -- well, there will be five guys in that group to handle those three spots, with two guys coming off the bench. What that means for the final Opening Day roster remains to be seen.
"We're just trying to get more exposure to Rusney in right field; we need to get a better gauge on Vic's durability, if we can, over the coming days. We acknowledged from the first day in camp, the outfield, there's going to be a lot of focus on our outfield.
"That pretty much hasn't changed, but what we've seen are some really encouraging things. And that's how quickly Rusney's come back and shown decent timing at the plate [and] what Mookie's done in center field speaks for itself."
Red Sox Farrell 'very impressed' with Rusney Castillo
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/21/15) Rusney Castillo is only two games into his spring training, but he's making a strong first impression.
A day after homering in his first spring at bat, Castillo went two for three with a triple and run scored on Saturday.
Red Sox manager John Farrell said he was "very impressed" with Castillo.
“From missing a couple of weeks, it doesn’t seem to have disrupted his timing at the plate," Farrell said, according to the Boston Herald's John Mastrodonato. "He’s playing with obviously more aggressiveness than the two days over on the minor league side. He’s been right on fastballs. It’s very encouraging to watch him.”
Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo homers in spring debut
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(3/20/15) Rusney Castillo make quite an initial impression with the Red Sox on Friday, blasting a three-run homer in his spring debut Friday.
The outfielder made his debut as a replacement for center fielder Mookie Betts in the seventh inning of the contest against the Orioles, and in his first at-bat, he crushed a homer to give the Red Sox the lead.
Castillo is scheduled to start Saturday, but it's doubtful that he will get the number of at-bats in the spring needed to make the big-league roster.
"He's a talented guy, but to translate that into numbers, I'm not that good," Red Sox manager John Farrell told MLB.com.
Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo finally ready for spring debut
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/20/15) Red Sox manager John Farrell said outfielder Rusney Castillo, who has been sidelined since early March with an oblique injury, will make his spring debut off the bench Friday against the Orioles.
Farrell added Castillo -- who is competing for the starting job in center field -- will make his first start Saturday against the Pirates.
"(I'm) looking forward to seeing next step," Farrell said.
Red Sox's Rusney Castillo could make Grapefruit debut Saturday
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) Red Sox center fielder Rusney Castillo is on track to make his first Grapefruit League appearance this Saturday against the Pirates, according to MLB.com.
Castillo participated in a minor-league game on Thursday and reported no lingering pain. Castillo injured his left oblique during a swing on March 3. Castillo went 0 for 3 with a walk.
|2014 summary: Rusney Castillo's late-season cameo for the Red Sox went as well as anyone could have expected. It took the Cuban defector less than a month to go from signing a seven-year, $72.5 million contract to making his major league debut. He showed up in time to play 10 of the Red Sox's last 11 games, and he batted .333 with two home runs, six RBI and three stolen bases.|
Playing time summary: The Red Sox have an outfield logjam this offseason, but Castillo has as good of a chance as any of the candidates to solidify his status as an everyday player.
2015 outlook: The 27-year-old has yet to get a true test in the majors, and based on his numbers from Cuba, it would not be surprising to see Castillo struggle to hit for power and average as well as he did during his first exposure to major league pitching. He's still too much of an unknown to entrust with an early-round pick, but Castillo is still worth a flier in the middle-to-late rounds of standard mixed league drafts.
