What to make of Rusney Castillo? Another injury happened on Wednesday on a steal attempt and Castillo was classified day-to-day, but was back in the lineup on Thursday night. Castillo injured his shoulder in the third game of the season and that resulted in a stint on the DL. The two injuries are, however, injuries due to hustle and not a pattern of frailty.

On Tuesday Castillo had a walk-off line drive single in the 10th to get the PawSox a 2-1 win against Indy. For the season Castillo is slashing .264/.322/.321 with no home runs. The lack of power just could be related to his shoulder injury earlier in the season.

What does Castillo have to prove? Everywhere he has played since being handed 72.5M Castillo has performed up to or exceeding expectations. The talent is apparent to anyone who watches him and Castillo may soon join Boston.
