Manager John Farrell said that Castillo, who was out of the lineup for the third time in five games Thursday, has been expanding the strike zone, the Boston Globe reports. "I think he's probably seeing some righthanded sinkerballers a little bit more competent at this level than any time in the past," Farrell said.
