Rusney Castillo?

Recommended Posts

Any chance the sox take a chance on this guy. He has to be better than Schuck and Coats. The Sox need to do something soon, could this work for the Sox?

If he gets released and Boston is on the hook for all the salary, sure.

Sounds like he will be released on monday, so Boston has to pay the rest of his salary.

 

Don't know why my phone keeps putting a C in Shuck

I wouldn't give him any reps on the MLB roster, that's for sure. If he wants to go to AAA and prove he can hit, then why not

There are Alex Guerrero, Reyes, and now Castillo out there. Plus you have Morneau waiting to play. If you want a lottery ticket, they are out there.

Nobody's going to claim Castillo and take on his salary.

 

He's undoubtedly better than Shuck/Sands/Avi/Coats, though. The type of player a rebuilding team gives 3-4 months of regular playing time to earn a starting position for 2017.

Castillo optioned to AAA by Bosox. They are still paying him; no team wanted him at that price. Makes one think that maybe some of these Cuban FA's are over rated/over priced.

Yeah he just goes off the 40. That's all him being waived is. Boston is better off holding onto him and seeing if he can turn it around off of the 40 man roster.

If they wanted him off the 40 man, they probably don't want him at all. That said, yes, it would make more sense for them to just see if he can figure it out since at most they'll recoup a few million bucks.
