Alex Cora Is Loving Rusney Castillo's Play

According to a report by's Gordon Edes, former Red Sox player Alex Cora thinks Rusney Castillo will do just fine in Boston. Cora manages Criollos de Caguas of the Puerto Rican Winter League—where Castillo has already played seven games after recovering from an earlier thumb injury. So far, Rusney is hitting .320 with a HR and a stolen base. But, aside from the obvious physical talents, it's Castillo's make-up that really impressed Cora. Said the former Sox infielder, "He's not a prima donna. He's just like the other guys. He shows up on time, he works out, and off the field, I'm very impressed with the way he acts and who he is." We're looking forward to a full season of Rusney at Fenway.
