    Rusney Castillo: Heads to Japan

    Rusney Castillo signed with the NPB's Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles on Saturday.Castillo appeared in just 99 games at the big-league level from 2014 to 2016, hitting a modest .262/.301/.379, though he could potentially have gotten more opportunities as at least a bench piece if not for an odd contract situation which gave the Red Sox strong incentives to keep him off the 40-man roster. Even if he looks good with regular at-bats in Japan, his MLB days are likely over, as he'll turn 34 in July.

    Red Sox's Rusney Castillo: Healthy again

    Rusney Castillo (groin) will start in right field Sunday in Triple-A Pawtucket's game against Syracuse.Castillo made his season debut for Pawtucket in Saturday's doubleheader, playing both ends and finishing 1-for-6 with a walk and a run scored. His ability to play on back-to-back days suggests he's moved past the groin injury that sidelined him for a portion of Boston's Grapefruit League slate.

    Red Sox's Rusney Castillo: Shipped to minors

    The Boston Red Sox assigned Rusney Castillo (groin) to their minor-league camp Tuesday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.The Red Sox abandoned hope of getting any kind of value from Castillo long ago and are simply waiting for his seven-year, $72.5 million contract to come off the books at the conclusion of the 2020 season. Castillo, who was limited to one Grapefruit League appearance due to the groin injury, will report to Triple-A Pawtucket once healthy and will likely remain with the affiliate for the entire campaign.

    Red Sox's Rusney Castillo: Dealing with minor groin issue

    Rusney Castillo has a right groin injury and won't play for at least three days, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.The issue is reportedly not particularly serious and should leave Castillo plenty of time to get in game shape by Opening Day. He's unlikely to spend that day on the big-league roster despite a strong .319/.360/.416 slash line at Triple-A Pawtucket last season.

    Red Sox's Rusney Castillo: Playing well at Triple-A

    Rusney Castillo was named the International League Player of the Week, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.Castillo is hitting a solid .316/.345/.436 on the season for Triple-A Pawtucket, following a 2017 campaign in which he hit .314/.350/.507 at the same level. Ordinarily, those numbers would leave a player on the brink of a promotion, but for a 30-year-old who's owed $35.5 million through 2020, there's little reason for the Boston Red Sox to bring him up and add him to their luxury tax bill. His strong performance means there's at least a chance that another team will take a chance on him, but there won't be a long line of organizations queuing up for a player who's made just eight major-league plate appearances since 2015.

    Red Sox's Rusney Castillo: Gets spring invite from Red Sox

    Rusney Castillo has been invited to the Boston Red Sox's major-league camp this spring, Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston reports.Castillo will get a look during spring after spending the entire 2017 campaign with Triple-A Pawtucket. He hit a respectable .314/.350/.507 with 15 homers and 14 stolen bases in 87 games for the PawSox, but still didn't receive a September callup because he would have pushed Boston over the luxury tax threshold last season. Castillo's strong 2017 season offers some hope moving forward, though even if he breaks camp with the Red Sox in 2018, he won't be more than the team's right-handed reserve outfielder.

    Red Sox's Rusney Castillo: Bound for 7-day DL

    Rusney Castillo will be placed on the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Pawtucket with a groin strain, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.Castillo suffered the injury during Wednesday's game, leaving after singling in his second at-bat. The good news is that the injury is minor, so he should be back on the field after a few days of rest, but it puts an unexpected halt to a very productive season for the outfielder. Heading into Thursday, the 29-year-old is slashing .311/.348/.496 with nine home runs, yet remains organizational depth behind a well-established Boston Red Sox outfield.

    Red Sox's Rusney Castillo: Back in action at Triple-A

    Rusney Castillo (leg) is back in action at Triple-A Pawtucket. He is hitting .273/.299/.472 with seven home runs and seven stolen bases in 161 at-bats this season.While those numbers are solid, they are hardly impressive, given Castillo's age (29) and pedigree ($72.5 million bonus in 2014). He does not appear to be particularly close to returning to any kind of prominent role in the big leagues.
