|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/18/14) Red Sox promising outfielder Rusney Castillo expressed contentedness Wednesday night after recording his first major league hit in four at-bats in a lopsided loss to Pittsburgh. His hit never left the infield, but he's not complaining.

Highlighting top outfield prospects for 2015
Starting with Cuban stars Jorge Soler and Rusney Castillo, Scott White ranks the top 20 outfield prospects. many of whom will spend next summer starring in the majors.
|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.
