Rusney Castillo diagnosed with an oblique strain

Following up on Drew’s post from last night, the Red Sox have announced that Rusney Castillo will miss at least one week with a left oblique strain.

This will give more playing time to Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley, Jr. Which is great for them even if it stinks for Castillo.

Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. scaled the center field fence to rob Padres shortstop Luis Urías of a solo home run in the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon’s game. Urías was trying to take advantage of a 0-1 slider from Ryan Brasier. Had Bradley not made the grab, the Padres’ lead would have been extended to 4-1.

Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they weren’t able to take advantage of Bradley’s effort, dropping Sunday’s contest 3-1. They still won the series against the Padres, however. The Sox will continue their road trip for two games against the Rockies followed by three versus the Angels.
