Red Sox And Empire Vie For Next Cuban Star
The Red Sox sent five key people (including Vice President of Player Personnel Allard Baird) to watch Rusney Castillo's showcase in Miami, The Evil Ones sent four. The 5'9", 27-year old CF speedster put on quite a display—two of his HRs cleared the scoreboard in left field at Alex Rodriguez Park at the University of Miami. Another shot landed in a parking garage in right. This guy could be picked up at any time—as his signing would not factor against a team's international bonus pool. It's estimated that he could match Yasiel Puig money—but more likely will sign for between $25 and $35 million. This could happen fast.
