2015

Castillo is a bit of mystery. The Red Sox out-bid several other teams and signed him to a six-year, $72 million deal in late August. His initial assignment in Boston's minor-league system was his first competitive baseball in 18 months. After some time at Boston's various minor-league affiliates, Castillo made 40 plate appearances (10 games) for Boston late in September and began to flash his potential in the final week of the season, going 8-for-16 with six runs, three walks, two stolen bases, two homers and five RBI in his final five games. The plan called for him to get 200 plate appearances, including his work in the minors, majors, Arizona Fall League and Puerto Rican winter ball before shutting down. He suffered a bruised hand in the Fall League, but it was a minor injury, and he eventually reported to Puerto Rico to finish off his offseason program. Scouts say he's a five-tool player, and the team's investment in him points to a significant long-term role. An oblique injury during spring training and a crowded depth chart prompted the Red Sox to option Castillo to Triple-A to begin the year, while Mookie Betts is positioned as the team's starting center fielder for Opening Day. Castillo may only be a Shane Victorino injury away from getting a regular spot in Boston.
