Rusney Castillo has reportedly taken a step closer towards joining the Boston Red Sox organization on the field.

According to Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com, the 27-year-old has secured his United States work visa, allowing him to play in games.

The center fielder is scheduled to work out in the Red Sox practice facility on Thursday.

Castillo signed a seven-year, $72 million contract with the team last week.
