Red Sox expected to promote Rusney Castillo on Tuesday

New Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo is expected to be one of the five final call-ups from Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports. The Pawtucket Red Sox will wrap up their Governor’s Cup series with the Durham Bulls tonight. Castillo contributed to the effort, helping force tonight’s game five with a game-tying RBI single in the ninth inning last night.

On August 22, Castillo inked a seven-year, $72.5 million contract with the Red Sox. The Cuban outfielder is expected to be a staple of the club’s outfield for years to come. However, playing time will likely be hard to come by through the rest of this season with the Red Sox outfield being crowded as is.
