Red Sox Outfielder Rusney Castillo Leaves PawSox Game With Ankle Injury


May 13, 2015

The Boston Red Sox received some discouraging news from down on the farm Wednesday.

Outfielder Rusney Castillo, who’s currently stationed at Triple-A Pawtucket, injured his ankle during what The Providence Journal’s Tim Britton described as “an awkward slide” into second base.

Castillo was removed from the game and walked off the field under his own power.

Entering Tuesday, Castillo was hitting .271 with three doubles, four RBIs and five walks through 12 games with the PawSox. The 27-year-old Cuban defector appeared in 10 games for Boston last season after signing a seven-year, $72.5 million contract, posting a .333/.400/.528 slash line with two home runs and six RBIs.

UPDATE (2:05 p.m. ET): Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters in Oakland that Castillo’s injury was a mild ankle sprain and that the outfielder was removed for precautionary reasons.
