BOSTON - John Farrell says he already has a plan on how he's going to play Mookie Betts, Shane Victorino, and the just-called-up Rusney Castilo.
He's no hero -- that's understood. And the Red Sox have no interest in wasting their summer, praying for a savior to rise from right field.
BOSTON - When Rusney Castillo looks to his left tonight, he'll see yet another different right fielder.
BOSTON - Pablo Sandoval made a pinch-hitting appearance on Thursday night, and was on the field early Friday afternoon, getting work at third base.
BOSTON - The Rusney Castillo Era is underway - this time for real.
Castillo has been officially called up to the Red Sox, with the team sending Jackie Bradley Jr. back down.
