Castillo Gets 2 Hits In 1st AZL Game
The Red Sox have seven prospects playing in the Arizona Fall League but let's face it, Rusney Castillo is getting the most scrutiny. The Cuban outfielder made his AZL debut with the Surprise Saguaros and collected two hits.
Castillo played centerfield in an 8-2 win over Peoria. He went 2-for-4 and walked once. One of Castillo's hits was a double.
Other Sox prospects playing for the AZL team are infielder Deven Marrero, infielder Sean Coyle and pitchers Keith Couch, Aaron Kurcz, Robby Scott and Madison Younginer.
The plan for Castillo is to get about 100 at bats in Arizona and then play some winter ball in Puerto Rico in November.
