Red Sox OF Castillo: Staying in box 'wasn't all that difficult'

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/26/15) The league's proposed new rule preventing batters from stepping out of the batter's box isn't new to Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo, who had to adjust to a similar rule when playing under the Baseball Federation of Cuba, WEEI.com reports.

"The game used to be really long, but about two years ago they implemented the rule we're trying to implement, with the hitter staying in the box," Castillo said. "That sped the game up a little bit. It did mess with some hitters, but for me, if I've got to do it, I've got to do it and I didn't think about all that much. It wasn't all that difficult for me, personally."

While the penalty for stepping out of the box under the proposed rule is a warning and potential fine, in Cuba batters receive a called strike for stepping out of the box. Cuban pitchers are also required to throw the ball within an alloted timespan.

"The biggest complaint is that people like to take that time to readjust and refocus," Castillo said. "It was just happening a little too quick, quicker than they wanted to. They wanted to control the tempo. It just took some time, but over the course of a season it just became normal. Now it's just normal. I don't know about a big difference, but it did make a difference."

Castillo will compete this spring to be the team's starting center fielder. He went 12 for 36 with two home runs and three stolen bases in his brief debut season.

Red Sox GM: Rusney Castillo ready to perform on big-league level

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/24/15) Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said Tuesday that the team isn't concerned with the recent lack of playing time for outfielder Rusney Castillo, who hadn't seen any action since 2012 before signing with the Red Sox last August, ESPN.com reports.

"That’s not an element we’re concerned with right now," Cherington said. "He’s done everything we asked him to do from the day we signed him -- going to the minor leagues, big leagues, Arizona [Fall League], Puerto Rico [winter ball] and everything in between. He’s in a position now where he comes to spring training, we met with him, told him, ‘Just be a baseball player and try to get into some kind of baseball normalcy now.’ I don’t expect the number of at-bats he’s had over the last 10 months to be a factor. Normalcy is going to play out in spring training. He has a chance to be a really good major league player. We’re happy he’s here."

Castillo is set to compete with Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley this spring to start in center field.

Red Sox's Rusney Castillo left lasting impression on winter league coach

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/12/15) Former Red Sox player Alex Cora coached Boston outfielder Rusney Castillo for 10 games this offseason in the Puerto Rican winter league. Castillo left a lasting impression after batting .405 coming off a thumb injury suffered in the Arizona Fall League.

“He has a great approach,” Cora told WEEI.com. “He only played 10 games for us and to be honest with you, I don’t know how many hits he had, but everything was back up the middle or to right center. As you guys know, if he keeps that approach for a long period of time, you’re going to hit for average. I was very surprised with that. Usually with the guys we’ve seen from Cuba coming to the big leagues they are dead pull hitters, very aggressive, a little bit out of control. He was the total opposite."

The Red Sox have a crowded outfield situation and will use the spring to sort out assignments. However, Cora feels Castillo is destined to be a center fielder.

"The way he reads bats and the way he gets jumps, he’s a very athletic guy," Cora said. "We thought coming in when he came down everyone was talking about how raw he was, especially defensively. He used to play in the infield and he made an adjustment right away. He was a guy that we would give him the scouting report and after the third inning you could see he was taking charge. He was moving the right fielder, he was moving the left fielder, he was playing shallow, he was playing deep -- he was making adjustments with the game and that was a great thing to see.”

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."

Report: Rusney Castillo (thumb) will play in winter ball

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/24/14) Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo, who had his stint in the Arizona Fall League end early due to a bruised thumb, is slated to resume playing in the Puerto Rican winter league, according to WEEI.com. Rusney will head down to Puerto Rico on Friday and hopes to play in his first game Dec. 2.

The plan is for Castillo to play get close to 100 at-bats in Puerto Rico, while playing in right and center field.
