      Red Sox's Rusney Castillo: Working to shorten swing

      Castillo said he's been working this winter to shorten up his swing because of the faster pitching speeds he's seen in the major leagues, the Boston Herald reports. Castillo, who signed with Boston in Aug. 2014, still hasn't made a full adjustment to baseball in the states and remains an enigma entering the 2016 season. Injuries have slowed his development, including his adjustment to the higher caliber pitching and the longer season in MLB. He's shown ability in short spurts and will be given a chance to start everyday if healthy out of spring training.

      Red Sox's Rusney Castillo: Projects to open in left field

      Castillo projects to open 2016 as Boston's starting left fielder, MLB.com reports. Manager John Farrell indicated Castillo will be in left with Mookie Betts in right, flanking Jackie Bradley in center. Castillo signed a record-breaking $72 million contract in August of 2014, but an oblique injury and Betts' emergence pushed him to Triple-A to start 2015. He eventually came up to hit just .252/.288/.359 in 80 games with the Red Sox, with a .225/.263/.292 line in September. Chances are, Castillo will have to swing his way out of a bottom-third spot in the batting order.
