Mookie Betts on Rusney Castillo: 'I'm just quick. He's quick and fast'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/20/15) There is no denying Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts has got some speed. He stole 40 bases between the minors and majors in 2014, and totaled 92 stolen bases in 298 games in his minor-league career.
Betts will admit he is fast, but he has no problem saying outfielder Rusney Castillo is faster.
"Absolutely," Betts said, per MassLive.com. "I'm just quick. He's quick and fast. I feel like in the outfield he'll be able to cover plenty of ground. Especially in that outfield (at Fenway Park), where you need a center fielder who is going to run down some balls, I think he'll be able to run down plenty."
The Red Sox are also hoping Castillo will use his speed to be effective on the base paths.
"He's got raw speed," director of player development Ben Crockett said. "I saw him probably very early in the evaluation as he's getting back into organized baseball. Given that speed, he has a chance to do some damage on the bases. He's going to have to learn opponents and learn the guys he can and can't go on. Just like any player with limited experience coming up."

Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo day-to-day with hand/thumb injury
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(10/21/14) Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo is day-to-day after suffering a bruised hand/thumb during Arizona Fall League play Monday, WEEI.com reports.
Castillo suffered the injury while getting jammed during an at-bat. He signed a $72.5-million deal in August that runs through 2020.
Red Sox issue Thursday lineup sans Rusney Castillo
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/18/14) Red Sox ballyhooed rookie outfielder Rusney Castillo is not in the Thursday lineup in Pittsburgh. He had his major league debut Wednesday night and went 1 for 4.
|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.
