Reports: Red Sox agree to deal with Rusney Castillo

According to multiple reports, including WEEI, the Red Sox have agreed to a seven-year, $72.5 million deal with Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo that will begin this season.

At 5-foot-9, 205 pounds, Castillo is a five-tool player according to some scouts. He projects to play either center or right with the Red Sox.

It’ll be interesting to see how the Red Sox sort out their suddenly overcrowded outfield in the offseason, but it’s a good problem to have. One month ago the Sox had very little production from the outfield and suddenly they’ve got an abundance of talent.
