Sox To Sign Cuban OF Castillo [VIDEO]
The Red Sox have apparently won the bidding war to sign Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo…a 7-year $72.5 million dollar deal. He is 27-years-old and is thought to be a centerfielder, although he can play the infield.
According to various MLB reports, Castillo is a stocky 5-9 with great speed and gap power. He is a former teammate of Yoenis Cespedes.
