Rusney Castillo Activated From Disabled List

(Bob DeChiara, USA TODAY Sports)
Apparently, Rusney Castillo is sufficiently healed from the shoulder injury that sidelined him earlier this season, as he has been activated off the minor league disabled list. Despite his health, the Red Sox announced (via Manager John Farrell) that Castillo still needs "significant at-bats at AAA"—whatever that means. Considering how well Castillo has hit at multiple levels (AA, AAA, MLB), you have to wonder how long it will be before he is on the big club—and playing right field every day. Of course, there's that obvious complication called Shane Victorino—who just recently went on the DL. Stay tuned.
