Rusney Will Join Portland In Wednesday Playoff

(Bill Parmeter/GCL Red Sox)Red Sox 'CF Of The Future' Rusney Castillo will join the AA Portland Sea Dogs on Wednesday for their playoff game against Binghampton. Castillo has already played two games for Boston's Gulf Coast League affiliate. Since both the AAA Pawtucket Red Sox and AA Sea Dogs are still playing, it offers the organization a good opportunity to "tune-up" Castillo in meaningful situations. As you may recall, the Cuban defector is now a very rich man—having signed a seven-year, $72.5 million contract back on August 23rd.

Castillo: I'm ready for any scenario

TAMPA, Florida -- After helping the Red Sox to win the Gulf Coast League title in the rookie league finals, Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo will try to reprise that in Double-A ball, as he continues his warm-up tour before his expected major league debut with Boston in the final month of the regular season.

Napoli: Hip is fine; other injuries nag

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli has to suppress a laugh when someone asks about the degenerative hip condition that two years ago cast his playing future into doubt. “My hips are the only thing that don’t hurt,’’ said Napoli, who hit his 17th home run in Boston’s 4-3, 10-inning loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday. “It’s unbelievable.

Matt Joyce’s bases-loaded single over a drawn-in Sox outfield scored the winning run off Burke Badenhop, the sixth Sox pitcher. Ryan Hanigan opened the inning with a double to the wall in left, Hanigan just beating an amazing throw by outfielder Yoenis Cespedes with a head-first slide into the bag.
