The early reports on newly signed Boston Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo are very good.

The Cuban defector continues to ease into American professional baseball, and he did so most recently at Double-A Portland. Castillo played Friday and Saturday in the Sea Dogs’ playoff series against the Binghamton Mets, and he opened plenty of eyes.

See a report on Castillo from Sea Dogs play-by-play man Mike Antonellis in the video above from “NESN Sports Today.”
