In yet another injury to a Boston Red Sox player, the team has announced that outfielder Rusney Castillo is out indefinitely with a right shoulder injury, one that he sustained in Pawtucket's loss to Lehigh Valley last Saturday.
Despite the encouraging news of an MRI revealing no structural damage, Red Sox manager John Farrell conveyed the notion that it is best if Castillo takes some time to fully recover as not to jeopoardize his long-term health.
Castillo has been placed on the Minor League disabled list, and he traveled up to Boston on Tuesday to receive treatment on his shoulder. Before the injury, the prospect had been impressing the masses in Pawtucket, going 5-for-12 with a double.
In ten appearances with the Big League ball club in 2014, Castillo went a combined 12-for-36, hitting two homers, recording six RBI, striking out on six occasions, walking three times, and compiling a single HBP.
