Red Sox prospect Rusney Castillo likely back in OF early next week
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/1/15) Red Sox manager John Farrell said prospect Rusney Castillo (shoulder) will most likely return to playing the outfield for Triple-A Pawtucket by early next week, according to the Providence Journal. |
Castillo returned to the Pawtucket lineup April 29 as the designated hitter after being on the minor-league disabled list since April 11 with a shoulder injury.
Castillo is 5 for 16 (.313) with a double and two RBI in four games for Pawtucket this season.
Farrell: Rusney Castillo needs time before joining Red Sox
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/29/15) Red Sox outfield prospect Rusney Castillo appears destined for a long stretch at Triple-A Pawtucket after recovering from a shoulder injury.
John Farrell ended any speculation of a quick promotion, per the Boston Herald. Castillo, who signed a $72.5 million contract with Boston late last season, had five hits in 12 at-bats with Pawtucket before going down. Farrell is planning on giving Castillo plenty of plate appearances and time in the outfield before having him join the big-league club.
Red Sox's Rusney Castillo to return to Triple-A lineup Wednesday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/28/15) Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo will return to the lineup at Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday. He will serve as the DH.
Castillo has been on the minor-league disabled list since suffering a shoulder injury diving for a baseball during a game April 11.
Red Sox's Rusney Castillo (shoulder) expected back in minors mid-week
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/24/15) Red Sox outfield prospect Rusney Castillo (shoulder) is tentatively scheduled to return to Triple-A on Wednesday, but his call up to the Red Sox is further down the line, according to the Boston Herald.|
Castillo signed to a $72.5-million contract with the Red Sox last August and hit .333 in 10 major league games and .417 in three games at Triple-A Pawtucket.
"We're hopeful to have him back in a game by mid-week," Red Sox manager John Farrell said.
Castillo injured the shoulder April 11 while diving for a catch with the Pawtucket team.
Red Sox's Rusney Castillo beginning to do baseball work
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/22/15) Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo has started participating in baseball-related activities, according to Comcast Sportsnet New England.
Castillo hit off a tee Wednesday and continued light throwing. He's still recovering from a shoulder injury sustained on April 11. There is still no timetable on his return to the lineup to Triple-A.
|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.
