by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo trying to find his way since demotion


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2015) Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo has once again found his stroke in the minor leagues. Since being demoted back to Triple-A on June 24, Castillo is hitting .283 with a homer and five RBI in 15 games for Pawtucket.

Struggling Red Sox RF Rusney Castillo optioned to minors


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2015) The Red Sox have dispatched disappointing rookie right fielder Rusney Castillo to the minors, the Boston Globe has reported.

The move seemed inevitable given his struggles. Castillo started just once in the last seven games and has just two hits in his last 17 at-bats. He has only two extra-base hits in 74 at-bats this season.

John Farrell told the Boston Herald that Castillo, who arrived in Boston with much fanfare, "needs to get back to playing every day" and added that the move will allow him to "get back in the rhythm of the game."


So far, so bad for highly paid Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2015) The bottom line is the bottom line: $72 million over seven years.

That is what the Red Sox are paying right fielder Rusney Castillo to sit on the bench these days. He has started just once in the last six games.

John Farrell cannot be blamed for planting him on the pine. Castillo has been one of the biggest disappointments on his disappointing team. At 28 years old and seasoned in Cuba, he was supposed to be ready for the major leagues. But his awful slash line of .233/.263/.288 screams otherwise.

"Whether or not he's faced this caliber of pitching day in and day out before coming to the states, I can't speak to that," Farrell told the Boston Herald. "What we can speak to is what we see playing and unfolding in front of our eyes. You work with it, you give him feedback other than what he's seeing when he's in the box and you continue to work to get better."

Castillo has just one hit in his last 16 at-bats since a 3-for-4 performance on June 12 provided encouragement.

"Obviously it's a good feeling," Castillo said, per MLB.com. "It's a lot of preparation and work and staying disciplined and things finally worked out the way we wanted them to."

Castillo is hitting .245 with 12 hits in 49 at-bats this season.
