Red Sox rookie OF Rusney Castillo set to play Thursday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/28/15) Red Sox rookie outfielder Rusney Castillo is ready to roll Thursday night in Texas. He has been dealing with a shoulder issue that prevented him from playing Wednesday, but he will start in right and bat ninth.
The promising rookie is 3-for-15 since his promotion to the big leagues.
Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo sits Wednesday with sore shoulder
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/27/15) Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Twins due to a sore right shoulder. Castillo jammed the shoulder while diving to make a catch in Tuesday's game. At this point, there are no talks of a possible trip to the disabled list, but there is no timetable for his return to the lineup.
Castillo did say this injury isn't as bad as the one that sidelined him for two weeks in Pawtucket, and he is hoping to play on Thursday, according to the Providence Journal.
Castillo is hitting .200 (3 for 15) in four games since being recalled from Triple-A.
Red Sox INF/OF Brock Holt returns to lineup Wednesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/27/15) After missing two straight games for the Red Sox, Brock Holt has returned to the starting lineup for Wednesday's afternoon game against the Twins. Holt was hit by a pitch on Sunday and did not play the next two games nursing an arm injury.
But the ailment was minor, as Holt is back in right field and hitting eighth for manager John Farrell. Holt is 8 for 30 with four doubles over his last 10 games.
Rusney Castillo will be on the bench for Wednesday's game.
Red Sox's John Farrell shuffles lineup before facing Angels
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(5/23/15) Red Sox manager John Farrell wanted to shake things up against the Angels, he did just that prior to Saturday's game, per The Boston Herald.
Farrell slotted second baseman Dustin Pedroia into the leadoff spot, inserted his Triple-A call up Rusney Castillo to play centerfield and dropped David Ortiz to the cleanup spot.
Hanley Ramirez, who was nursing his left hand after being hit by a pitch on Friday, is also back in the lineup. Shane Victorino will hit second in the lineup after missing two games with a sore calf.
The Sox (19-23) are currently in fourth place in the American League East Division.
Red Sox bring up Rusney Castillo, option Jackie Bradley Jr.
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) The Red Sox officially called up outfield prospect Rusney Castillo from Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday, the team announced.
Castillo is expected to start in right field during Friday night's game against the Angels. Castillo is batting .293 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 18 games at Triple-A.
To make room for Castillo, the Red Sox optioned outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. 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.
