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.
