Sox & Tigers In Final Battle For Rusney Castillo

Rusney Castillo
Despite rampant rumors out of Cuba that the Red Sox had already signed him, International Free Agent Rusney Castillo is still out there for the taking. Multiple sources now say that it has come down to Boston and Detroit in the sweepstakes for the speedy, 27-year old Cuban defector. Boston needs offense and speed in its outfield and Detroit needs a grown-up replacement for the traded Austin Jackson. The Tigers need to sign Castillo by August 31st to allow him to play in the post-season. Boston has no such time pressure. It could all happen as early as Friday. Stay tuned!
