Red Sox working hard to try to land Cuban OF Rusney Castillo
Boston looks like the favorite to win his services.
The Red Sox are focused on signing outfielder Rusney Castillo, and several sources suggested they are working hard to beat several others teams to land the top Cuban free agent.
Boston remains "heavily involved" according to people familiar with the situation, and executives with other interested teams suggest the Red Sox are the favorite to win Castillo's services.
Boston and Detroit were tabbed as the favorites a couple days ago by Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston, and the Red Sox remain in close contact with Castillo, an exciting speed-power combo, according to league officials.
Estimates for Castillo have emerged at $72 million.
