Rusney Castillo's Decision Could Come Soon

Rusney Castillo In Action
UPDATE: Philly unlikely
The Red Sox have already made their bid on 27-year Cuban OF Rusney Castillo. Reportedly, so have at least four other teams (Detroit, The Evil Ones, the Cubbies, and Philadelphia). While he is considered a notch below fellow countrymen Jose Abreu and Yasiel Puig, Castillo is still regarded as a swift centerfielder with plus offensive skills—who can help any team right away. Reports suggest that Castillo will be making his decision very soon. If he chooses Boston, there will be even more pressure on Ben Cherington to deal with the OF surplus he will face in 2015. Can you say: blockbuster (including multiple OF options) for Giancarlo Stanton?
